Marty McWhirter

Marty McWhirter is a homegrown Knoxvillian who is trying her hand at being a reporter for the first time. She is currently volunteering as an intern, learning the ropes as a community journalist, and helping out with the entertainment calendar.

She has been the sole proprietor of a small sheet metal fabrication business for 20 years and a Registered Nurse for 35 years. She is interested in historic preservation and is currently working with the City of Knoxville to further develop and renovate her "vintage" SoKno warehouse that is located in the South Knoxville Waterfront Development area. She and her husband, John Ryan, are actively involved in the local arts community and have plans to include an art gallery in their warehouse. This gallery will allow them to have a dedicated space to showcase their own artworks, as well as other local artists' work.

As a home care nurse, Marty often works with some of East Tennessee's most vulnerable people. Her experience and perspective as a health care professional offers insight into these populations and she hopes to help give them a voice with her writing for the Hard Knox Independent.  She also has a particular interest in researching and writing about nutrition, food, farming and health care, including holistic therapies.
