Tell us about yourself. Who is That Knoxville Girl?
I'm a local Knoxville digital content creator who loves all things food-, beauty- and sports-related. I'm partial to a certain shade of orange. I have a vlogging channel over on YouTube.
What inspired you to start your social media business?
Honestly, I was a new mom, exclusively breastfeeding my newborn and was starving. I loved the idea of having a creative outlet I could share my favorite dishes and place to eat around Knoxville as I was hungry 24/7. I knew I could create a social media business people would love and could relate to through food.
What do you love most about this city?
I love the variety that Knoxville has to offer: mountains, a wonderful place to raise a family, downtown life, sporting events and some of the best restaurants. I love GameDay on Rocky Top. I love the atmosphere and rich traditions that the city of Knoxville has come Saturdays in the fall.
Any quotes or mantras you live by?
One of my favorite scriptures is: "I loved you at your darkest." Romans 5:8
What are your favorite Christmas traditions?
My favorite Christmas tradition is watching It's a Wonderful Life and attending all of our church's services. I love putting up our tree and decorating our house. My favorite Christmas cookies are peppermint pinwheels and "buckeyes."
Since your kids can’t read yet, you can tell us: what are they getting for Christmas this year?
They're getting Christmas jammies and memberships to Dollywood.
What do you hope Santa will leave for you under the tree?
I hope Santa leaves me a spa day package for Pure Luxe Spa and Spa Visage! They're my favorite day spas in Knoxville.
