The Tennessee Arts Commission was created in 1967 by the Tennessee General Assembly with the special mandate to stimulate and encourage the presentation of the visual, literary, music and performing arts and to encourage public interest in the cultural heritage of Tennessee.

Knoxville is a city on the Tennessee River in eastern Tennessee. Downtown, the Market Square district has 19th-century buildings with shops and restaurants. The Museum of East Tennessee History has interactive exhibits plus regional art, textiles and Civil War artifacts. James White’s Fort, built by the Revolutionary War captain, includes the reconstructed 1786 log cabin that was Knoxville’s first permanent building.

The Alliance was created in 2001 through a highly participatory community-driven process. Its predecessor was the Arts Council of Greater Knoxville, formed in 1974.

While earning a business degree at the University of Tennessee, I obtained my real estate license in 2003. I spent the next ten years managing a top producing real estate team that averaged over $25 million a year in sales. In addition to working with buyers and sellers, I became a broker and took on roles for training, developing, and advising other agents. In 2014 I decided to pave my own path as an agent and went into business on my own. Like my personality, I am a very easy-going Realtor. My philosophy is to take a soft, low pressure approach with my clients so they never feel rushed or pressured into buying or selling a home until they’re ready.
