I’m a former TV news producer turned stay-at-home mom to my daughter Madeline and son Bennett. While I may stay at home, Madeline, Bennett and I are always on the go exploring Knoxville and making new friends. I'm a coffee addict, book lover, fashion-phile, occasional cook and bargain hunter. My guilty pleasures include Pinterest and bad reality TV. I believe a sense of humor is an essential survival skill. And--lucky me--my funny husband Andy always keeps me laughing. Follow me on Knoxville Moms as I chronicle this challenging and rewarding adventure we call motherhood!


  1. Be warned Farmacy is not kid friendly. They basically wouldn’t even seat us and made up treason for super long wait.

  2. For the Knoxville area I’d have voted for Nick & J’s Cafe on Lovell Road. They offer 15 different hamburgers and use 1/2 lb. Fresh Pattied beef daily they’re ah-mazing!
