Patrice Rennick

My name is Patrice Rennick and I’ve been an RN since 1982.   My husband and I moved from Michigan to Tellico Village in August 2017. My specialty in nursing is wound and ostomy care; I still work part time with a durable medical equipment company as a consultant. In 1997, my then 8-year-old cat Pia was diagnosed with chronic renal failure.  At the time, the vet said that aside from changing her food, there wasn’t anything he could do or recommend.   He said Pia may have about one year to live. I had heard of a holistic vet nearby, soRead more

Stephen Kerr

Stephen Kerr

My name is Stephen Kerr. I want you to know that I enjoy helping people and I am passionate about what I teach. There was a need to bring Tai Chi/Qigong to people in a manner that was not only easy for them to learn and use, but was also correct. Sixteen years ago, I answered that need in Knoxville with my business Clear’s Tai Chi, offering Tai Chi, Tai Chi Chuan and Qigong teaching. What has carried me this long and why five years from now I hope to still be doing what I am is my desire toRead more

Molly Miketo

Molly Miketo

My name is Molly Miketo, a Cleveland, Ohio native and I work with the Akashic Records in my new business InFullSight. While I have been working with the Records for about four years, I am excited to now be doing this full-time here in Knoxville. I am proudly taking this leap to start my own business because I know it is time and I know it will provide, however it may look or whatever it may require! Yes, I truly can find, see, and believe a silver lining in Everything. It can be mildly annoying for friends and family, butRead more

Ryan Teeter

Ryan Teeter

My name is Ryan Teeter, the very grateful owner and doctor at Summit Chiropractic out on the west side of town. I know what you’re probably thinking and no, we are not affiliated with Summit Medical Group. In fact, our care is unlike anything currently in Knoxville, but more on that later! I grew up in southeastern Pennsylvania and even went on to play college football up there. If you have met me, you probably wouldn’t believe that, but let that be a testament to the power of eating plants! It was actually a pretty scary sports injury to myRead more

Dee Matchett

Dee Matchett

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dee Matchett. Osteoporosis runs four generations deep on the paternal side of my family. Both my great grandparents and my grandmother died from complications due to osteoporosis. Despite my prevention regimen of bone healthy foods, recommended supplements, weight lifting and high impact exercise, I too was diagnosed as high risk for fracture. Although my prevention regimen had delayed the onset and slowed progression of the disease, genetics were getting the upper hand. In June of 2015, my Dad also died after suffering with osteoporosis. I began searching for a natural way toRead more

Ward Tummins

Ward Tummins

I was born in Pt Arthur Texas a good number of years ago when all kids grew up pretty much free range (left the house in the morning and came back for supper when dad got home). I grew up in Groves TX, right next to Pt Arthur, but very few people have heard of either one. It’s on the Texas coast right on the Louisiana border so the culture was more Cajun than Texan. My wife and I moved to TN almost 20 years ago after looking for a place we could buy a piece of land in theRead more
