Debbie BenedictDebbie Benedict

Hello, my name is Debbie Benedict, and I have lived in East Tennessee most of my life. I graduated from Pellissippi State and then went on to get my bachelor’s degree from East Tennessee State University and my master’s degree from Tusculum University. I love my job because it gives me the opportunity to work with students and make them feel welcome and appreciated on a daily basis. One of my favorite things about Pellissippi State is that the staff and faculty are always there to help and support students through their educational journey. I live in the Knoxville area with my husband, our two children and our dog. When I am not working, I love running, camping and spending time with my family.
