Carson Newman Student Interns at Buckhorn Inn

Taylor Foy for Blog and Newsletter

Hi, my name is Taylor, and I am the intern at Buckhorn Inn for the next few months. I am a senior at Carson-Newman College, which is not very far from my hometown, Knoxville, Tennessee.

My family has always loved the mountains. From the time I was little, we have spent most of our free time hiking, biking, swimming, shopping, or just exploring the Great Smoky Mountains. My favorite place in the park is Cades Cove. No matter how many times I have been around that 11-mile loop, I always find something new to fall in love with. My adoration for this beautiful place created the perfect opportunity for me to learn at the Buckhorn Inn.

My major is Consumer Services, and I have a minor in Business Administration. Being part of a bed and breakfast operation has been a dream of mine for many years, and there is no place more stunning than Buckhorn Inn. With the support of my professors and the wonderful Innkeepers, Lee and John, I know I will have an unforgettable experience growing to be a young professional. I will be spending some time in each department throughout the inn as well as assisting in planning some special events. I look forward to meeting each guest I will encounter, and I hope I can make their experience at the inn as wonderful as mine has been thus far.
