Originating from England, Carly is proud as downhome punch to call Knoxville her home city now. The UK ain’t got nothing on the colors of an East TN Fall! When she’s not attached to her laptop running her own business, she’s attached instead to her husband and three kids, all of whom make her life a joy and a hoot day after day. She loves the outdoors, loves a bargain (who doesn’t?) and is thrilled to be a part of the KMB team.
