I am so excited to be working with this amazing neighborhood association. I live on Ozark Rd. with my husband, Daxton, and my two girls, Ellery, age 4, and Thatcher, age 2. I am a speech therapist working with geriatrics in the home health setting. When I’m not working or taking care of kids, I love to spend time in the outdoors especially on whitewater, hiking, beekeeping, gardening, and knitting.
I will be serving as treasurer for my first year on the board, and I am excited about the energy the current board brings to the neighborhood. My wife, Abby, and I have lived at 2800 Haywood Ave for the last 10 years. We have 2 girls, ages 11 and 5. I work at CADAS as a substance abuse counselor and my wife works at Erlanger in the legal department. We have seen the neighborhood growing in the last decade and we care deeply about this neighborhood as we have plans to stay here for some time. I have fond memories of my neighborhood growing up and wish the same for my children. I am looking forward to serving on the new board and making Stuart Heights a memorable experience for all.
I live on Ozark Road with my husband Wells, and our 2 girls Wynn (6) and Audrey (3). We bought our house from my husband’s grandmother 4 years ago and have been enjoying this amazing neighborhood ever since. I work at BCBST and Wells is self employed as a real estate appraiser. I am working as the social media coordinator for the SHNA and have also joined the SH pool board as well this year! I am looking forward to bringing these 2 boards together for the betterment of both the pool and neighborhood!! In our free time we love to hang out with friends, play outside with the girls, and in the summertime go to the lake and pool!! Looking forward to to the best year yet with neighbors!!
I have been a Chattanooga resident for 10 years. I work as a retail sales manager for REI. I enjoy whitewater kayaking, MTB, hiking, photography, fly fishing, and disc golf. I have lived in Stuart Heights for 1 year with my wife, Whitney Bacalman, 2 children: Ellery Rae and Thatcher Anne. We are proud homeowners with a sense of sustainability practices. I am an avid volunteer with organizations for a better tomorrow and believe Stuart Heights Neighborhood Association mission is a perfect fit for my values and ethics. I am excited to serve the members of this community the best way I can. I look forward to meeting all of the people within Stuart Heights. Being a new parent, I am excited to be a part of this neighborhood, grow a positive future for my children, and continue to grow Stuart Heights into the best it can be for everyone living in this wonderful area of Chattanooga.

I have lived in Chattanooga all of my life. We moved last year from North Chattanooga to Stuart Heights and absolutely love it. I am a wife to Walter, a dog Mom to my 14 year old American Bulldog (George) and a full time Realtor at Keller Williams Realty. We love camping in our vintage camper, spending time on the lake and just about anything outdoors.
George and I bought our Stuart Heights home in 2013. We have been happily busy ever since bringing new life to our 1960s one-owner home. We have two amazing young children, Evie (4) and Georgie (2), and enjoy spending our free time outdoors, hiking and near the water. I work in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis, serving those with special needs. George maintains a variety of ventures in the field of environmental science, and is currently apprenticing as a brick mason. We are thrilled at the overwhelming interest in the growth of this neighborhood and surrounding community supports. See everyone at the Stuart Heights upcoming events!
My fiance, Alex Haas, and I moved to Chattanooga three years ago. Through St. Luke's Church and neighborhood events we have been introduced to many of the wonderful people who help make up Stuart Heights Neighborhood. When given the opportunity to join the board last year, I gladly accepted it. This year there is renewed energy, passion, and drive to really create a warm and inviting neighborhood and community within the board, I am proud and excited to be a part of this. A little bit about me, I am a seventh generation Texan, who currently works for NAI Charter, a local commercial real estate company. I am also a full-time student at UTC, attempting to get my second degree in Accounting. I enjoy playing sports, the two big ones in my life are soccer and ultimate frisbee. I played for women's soccer team at Mississippi State University and sometimes play in recreational leagues around Chattanooga. I also play ultimate frisbee for both a competitive local team and a professional women's team in Nashville. I am passionate about senior dogs, particularly boxers, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. Looking forward to getting to know y'all and seeing Stuart Heights continue to grow and thrive.
