Katie S.

Hey ya’ll! I’m Katie, and I am the Content Coordinator for the Learn section of the Clayton Website. I am a recent graduate of Maryville College with a Writing and Communications degree and minor in Graphic Design. I am also a native of Knoxville, Tenn., which is just down the road from our headquarters. I am excited to write for the blog so that I can continue learning and teaching new things about our homes. Sharing a variety of tips on everything from styling out your home to further understanding manufactured and modular housing is my bread and butter. I hope you enjoy discovering new things with us!
