Knoxville, TN

Welcome to my world!

I grew up in Leadville, CO. I really enjoyed growing up in the mountains and the lifestyle that goes along with that. I left after high school and attended the University of Kansas and was honored to run on their track and cross country teams.

After graduating I moved to Kansas City and worked for the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). When they moved to Tulsa, OK, so did I.

After a great six years with the NAIA, I accepted a position with USA Gymnastics in Indianapolis, IN. At USA Gymnastics I handled all the arena management for all nationally televised events. I handled the arena set-up and was the main liasion to NBC and CBS sports for each event. It was a great deal of work but also rewarding. I was with USA Gymnastics in 1996 when the ladies team won gold!

From there, I accepted a position with the Knoxville Sports Corporation in Knoxville, TN. I was the 4th member of that great staff and we hosted multiple sporting events and concerts during my career there. When I left, we had aquired the Knoxville Convention and Visitors Bureau, built the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame and I also helped them manage the U.S. Cellular Soccer Complex and the Knoxville Sports Park. In addition, I supervised the activities of Junior Pro Basketball in 8 states. When I left in 2006, I was the Sr. Vice President and our company had over 45 employees.

I left sports managment to open my own real estate business. While I thoroughly enjoyed the real estate world, the downturn in the economy made it fiscally impossible to continue with that endeavor. After four years, I left real estate and joined Bell Partners as the Assistant Manager of Smoky Crossing's 400 apartments.

Recently, I left there to start my own business - 3D Services. We handle commercial and residential carpet cleaning needs as well as grout/tile, upholstery and matress cleaning. We would love to make you look your best. 3D Services- Service Where You can See the Difference!
