Director of Sales and Marketing
Lynn works closely with families in the Greater Knoxville area who find themselves seeking additional help with their aging loved one with a continued focus being how she can best serve them and in the care of getting to know the clients and their families, getting to know what makes them the individual they are and the history they have while getting to know their new place to call home. South High is a great start for the best years to come with the caring staff to back you as you age in place. Lynn has always enjoyed our Seniors and the joy they share with us.
