She's a best-selling author and her specialty is in communication, public speaking, building relationships, and creating connections. She's also got a local Knoxville radio show, as well as a food blog - so it's her job to keep Brent fed and happy.

Receptionist and Administrative Assistant
Kaye Blair is our welcoming friendly face you'll see when you walk through the door each time you visit. "Miss Kaye" as we like to call her, has been in the Tellico Village area for years, and you may have seen her at the Wellness Center where she greeted members. When Brent started working there in 2015, a friendship blossomed, and now we are blessed she's joined our team as of January 2019. Miss Kaye sends our clients reminders and keeps Brent in line during the day - that's a pretty big job!
