Editor's Letter




My whole life summer has been a time for adventure. It has been a time to try new things, to meet new people and to have some fun. Growing up I had my mother to thank for that. She always ensured that I had the confidence to try new things and to be unafraid. Living in Knoxville I have always been known as Gay and Bill’s daughter. I’ve been proud to hold that title, but I have also been eager to be known as my own person. Thanks to the support of my amazing parents, incredible work team, and an amazing group of women you have probably all seen around town with their cameras, I have just put my first issue of VIP Knoxville on the shelves and into your hands. I’m looking forward to this new adventure with VIP Knoxville, and I hope you’ll all join me in wishing my mother well in her next adventure.
