Know My Knoxville

Favorite Knoxville pastime/location? I love coming down to Market Square on Saturdays for the Farmer’s Market and going on hikes at Ijam’s and the Urban Wilderness. 

Favorite thing about Knoxville? I love that it’s an eclectic city with great food, music, and people, but it’s set in the middle of the mountains. 

What part of town do you live in? I live in North Knoxville. 

Why did you choose that part of town? I was immediately attracted to all of the historic neighborhoods throughout North Knox and its proximity to downtown.  

How long have you lived in Knoxville? Where else have you lived? I’ve been in Knoxville for just over a year.  Prior to that I attended college in Boone, NC and lived in Greensboro, NC.  I also lived in Pennsylvania and New Jersey when I was growing up. 

Quick Bits

Favorite TV show….Gilmore Girls

Favorite vacation…The Netherlands and Prague

Favorite time of day (and why)…I love late mornings when I can start my day slow with a big cup of coffee!

Four people (dead or alive) you would love to have dinner with…Jack Kerouac, Joan Baez, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Maya Angelou

How do you spend your free time….I am always trying new recipes, taking on DIY projects, and playing with my two big pups.  I love to get outside and go on hikes, try new restaurants, and go to all the great concerts that come through Knoxville!
