I grew up in Maine, went to Amherst College in MA and then moved to rural Alabama to work in public health before returning to school to become a nurse and midwife. I moved to Knoxville in 2014, met my husband and started a family here in this community we love. We enjoy spending time with our dog, exploring the outdoors and trying new food!
