Clayton Blog

Katie S.

Nice to meet you! I’m Katie, and I am excited to be blogging for Clayton Homes. I love cooking, and I feel most at home when I am in the mountains. Currently, I am a senior at Maryville College with a passion to learn something new every day. As someone who is about to enter the adult world, I love finding out home ownership and finance hacks. I hope you enjoy learning new things with me in my blogs! I enjoy sharing tips on everything from styling out your home to helping you further understand our home industry.
