Kerensa Joy Smith
(865) 696-7374 ● In 2009 I held the title of Tennessee’s Perfect Miss for beauty, personality, and talent. Currently, I am seeking a profession outside the theater industry that needs a consistently upbeat employee who enjoys building trusting relationships with customers and speaking in front of large groups. Constant self-improvement, humility, and working as a team are important to me. Work experience as an entertainer in the theater business and as an intern on Music Row in Nashville, Tennessee has taught me to play to my strengths, develop my weaknesses, prepare to the utmost, and fly by the seat of my pants when necessary!
