Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?

Marcus Lemonis. He is my favorite person on this planet right now! He gets to go into struggling businesses and rescue them. I couldn’t imagine a more satisfying way to spend my day.

What’s the coolest thing you’re working on right now? 

My husband and I just finished our first “Fix and Flip” house and put it on the market. It was a lot of fun to take something that was a mess and turn it into something beautiful.

Which four individuals, living or dead, would you like to eat dinner with the most?

My grandpa Royal, as I never had the chance to get to know him, and his father as well. Also, my sixth great grandma and grandpa, who were part of the founding families of Knoxville, TN.

What was the best concert you ever went to?

Joan Red in Savannah, GA. The lead singer, Anthony Basurto, had the most amazing voice. Their dress was theatrical, and their lyrics were very emotive.

What’s your favorite movie?

Well, I love psychological drama, so Requiem for a Dream is one of my all-time favorites. It tells parallel stories of those who have experienced loss, and makes the connection of how humanity connects us to one another through tragedy and suffering.

What’s the best meal you ever had? 

I love garlic, so “The Stinking Rose” in San Francisco is one of my favorite places to eat. The Bagna Calda is amazing and I love their Forty Clove Garlic Chicken but you can’t forget to bring your tooth brush and mouth wash with you!

Be on the lookout for Melissa, as she works with LBMC Technology Solutions clients to ensure that they have the best experience possible and are getting the most out of their technology systems.
