More About Me

Committed to the Work

A proud Knoxville native, Evetty holds a Special Education degree from Alabama A&M University and a Master of Social Work from Washington University in St. Louis. Evetty understands the importance of mastering your craft in order to serve your community with passion and knowledge.

In her short, yet fulfilled lifespan, Evetty has committed service years as a Founding Corps Member for City Year Denver and an Ella Baker Trainer for the Children’s Defense Fund. These opportunities have allowed her to continue spreading the movement by co-launching East Tennessee Freedom School in 2017. 

Evetty returned to Knoxville, TN after sharing her talents internationally as the Director of Student Services at Manor International in Abu Dhabi, UAE. She currently serves on the Knox County School Board and is the CEO of Advancing Lives, LLC. Outside of her many responsibilities, she finds the most joy by mentoring emerging adults.
