The mission of the Maryville Housing Authority is to provide a quality living environment for the qualified families of this community that is affordable and safe while promoting opportunities for economic development and family self-sufficiency without discrimination.
Chartered through the state of Tennessee in 1961, the Maryville Housing Authority is a non-profit agency governed by a six-member Board of Commissioners who the City Mayor of Maryville appoints. The day-to-day operations are managed by the executive director and a staff of 23.
Julie has two children and four grandchildren who live in Blount County as well. During her free time, you can find Julie with her husband hiking or biking in the mountains and cheering on the Braves and the Vols. “I take great pride in the privilege I have been given to serve Blount County. As Executive Director, I will ensure the Authority provides decent, safe, affordable housing within the community. Over the next few years, and with the assistance of the MHA Board of Directors, we hope to increase affordable housing within our community.”
