Clayton Blog

Kalley Y.

Hey there! I’m Kalley (pronounced like Cali). I’m currently working toward completing my Bachelor’s Degree in Business with a Marketing Concentration at Tusculum College (Knoxville Campus). Along with being a full-time student, this April marked my 3rd year with Clayton. I love working here and have the greatest team ever! As far as about me, I’ve always been a competitor and a sports lover. In high school, I played baseball, basketball and football. Similar to a lot of college students, I enjoy playing video games as well. I look forward to contributing my own twist to the Clayton blog and giving friendly pointers on housing and other popular topics.
