Meet Tammie Patterson Smith

Chiropractic Assistant

Tammie Patterson SmithHello! So very nice to meet you. My name is Tammie Patterson Smith. I am a Chiropractic Assistant at Bright Futures Chiropractic, and have enjoyed doing so since July 19, 2021.

My story begins on May 19, 1962 in Portsmouth, Virginia. I grew up with a loving Mom, Dad, Sister and Brother. We travelled with my Dad, and I had a wonderful childhood. I married in 1981 and have 2 wonderful boys. My eldest, his Scottish bride and 4 children will soon all reside in Blount county. My youngest lives in the North Pole, Alaska. I am currently married to my best friend and together we have 6 children and 15 grandchildren. I am very blessed.

Prior to BFC, my career path landed me in the ophthalmic world. In 2000, I began as a technician, and upon retirement in 2020 was the clinic flow coordinator for the Maryville satellite office of a large Ophthalmic practice. I enjoyed the time I had after retirement, but boredom snuck in and I am now working with a wonderful group of ladies here at BFC.

I so enjoy all things beachy. I have 2 mini long-haired Winnie dogs, and a 130 pound Anatolian Shepherd, aka the house pony. My husband and I love to travel and enjoy camping most of the year.

Thanks for taking a minute to get to know me a little better, as I look forward to getting to know each of you. Always remember to shine and spread kindness!
