For those that don’t know, I’m a huge Oakland Raiders fan. Folks often ask me how I came to follow a team on the opposite side of the country. The origins of that come from my Aunt Shelia, who lives in San Leandro, (a town right next to Oakland) and ran a successful small business in Oakland for a few decades prior to beginning a career in public service.

I am much more than a real estate agent. The same could be said of all of you that have different professions- lawyer, librarian, sales clerk, teacher, priest, factory worker, etc….
And in that vein operating a real estate business, I wanted it to be about much more than typical real estate stuff….
Last year I became inspired to use my real estate business as a mechanism to raise money for animal rescue groups in our area. My beloved companions that I’ve rescued over the years, along with hearing the stories of the important work animal rescue groups do, gave me the inspirations to make my business something more than just a profit center but also a philanthropic center.
In a little over 12 months Knoxville Homes with Cameron Brooks has donated over $4,000 dollars to local animal rescue groups…. How we do this is by dedicating 5% of profits to going to support groups that help animal welfare in the greater Knoxville area.
Back in 2016 I met my good friend the Reverend Harold Middlebrook for lunch at a new soul food restaurant called Jackie’s Dream, which is about a half mile from my house in East Knoxville. Thus started my patronage of this very good restaurant which specializes in “hot chicken” and other soul foods, including collard greens, fried okra, and my favorite- fried green tomatoes.

The social pressures that exist in our society around body image seem to be more aimed at women. For instance, through advertising, magazines, tv, etc., the ideal female body image marketed to the masses has undoubtedly put destructive, negative social pressures on women to look or strive to look a certain way.
Wanted to share a letter I wrote to the community about GoNorth Animal Rescue group from October of 2016:
OVER 8000 EAST TN SHELTER DOGS HAVE BEEN SAVED BY LOCAL RESCUE GROUP- AND HOW YOU CAN HELP….
My passion for dogs and animal rescue can be rooted in the friendship I had with my first dog named Berkeley.
