Gwen is a legal assistant with our office and the first point of contact for our clients. She coordinates our appointments and often works “behind the scenes” to accomplish a wide variety of tasks that enable our clients to receive quality time with our legal team.

Gwen is a member of the Human Rights Committee of Support Solutions of Knoxville, TN as a member of this committee she helps ensure all persons with intellectual disabilities are happy, healthy, safe, and moving forward in achieving their “Best Life”. She also is a member of the Advisory Board for Support Solutions of Mid-South, LLC.

Gwen and her husband Butch are both Tennessee natives and reside in Jefferson City. They have two sons and a daughter and two grandchildren Peyton and Penny.

Family time is very important to Gwen. As often as her busy schedule allows, she is traveling to Stafford, Virginia to spend time with Peyton and Penny (and spoil them rotten). Like many others in East Tennessee, Gwen reserves Saturday afternoons for the Big Orange!

In addition to all her other activities, Gwen is a Licensed Senior Tax Professional. During tax season, she can be found preparing tax returns for the general public. In her “spare time,” Gwen also enjoys cooking, family gatherings, working in her garden and helping with the family’s micro- landscaping business, or just sitting under the shade trees with Butch watching the wildlife in their yard.


Being blessed with a special needs child has taught me that you not only have the right to be an individual, you have an obligation to be one. It is an honor to serve and help our most vulnerable populations.
