Investment Advisor services are considered essential under the recent Knox County social distancing order. As such, our office is open to our clients at this time. If you prefer, we are happy to meet via teleconference or videoconference, and we are offering our clients the option of remaining in their own car while they deposit checks, pick up/drop off/sign documents. For clients coming to the office, our staff is following strict protocols including washing hands upon arrival and disinfecting any items brought into the office. We will maintain a safe distance and/or wear masks and encourage you to wear one as well. If you do not have one we can provide one for you. We also disinfect all surfaces between clients. We ask that you do your part by utilizing the hand sanitizer provided at the front door and by notifying us and rescheduling if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, shortness of breath, cough, traveled outside the Knoxville area over the last two weeks, or have been exposed to a person suspected of having the COVID-19 virus.
Of course you can always reach us by phone: 865-693-5300 and email at
We are all in this together. Please reach out to us as usual if you have any questions or concerns you would like to discuss. Please stay healthy and safe, and thank you for the trust you have placed in us to help you navigate this unprecedented time.

President and COO
Patty Long has over 20 years’ experience in client relations and account management encompassing a wide range of supporting roles in such organizations as a start-up IT company, local municipal, non-profit, and in tax, and environments.
She holds a computer science degree in computer programming where some time later realized that George Bernard Shaw’s famous quote “Education is wasted on the young.” is more a truism than she realized. Early roles in client development and sales support experience gave her the awareness that she is much more a people person speaking the English language than a computer programmer speaking machine language.
Having spent significant time growing up traveling and living abroad, she developed a diverse background in different cultures whereby developing her passion for people and the desire to build strong professional relationships became inspired.
Patty is mission minded at home and abroad. She has served her local community in undertakings from hands-on work projects for the home bound, visiting the elderly in nursing homes, to fund raising efforts for Hope Resource Center. Abroad she cared for orphans in Africa and assisted in tending to the medical needs of a remote community of people in Kenya. In 2013 and again in 2015, Patty and her husband served and supported the very poor and forgotten in Israel.
Patty and her husband enjoy traveling, antiquing, reading and collecting books for their home library.
