The following staff members work at Trinity Direct of Maryville:

Margaret Smith has lived in Maryville, TN since 2001 and currently is the receptionist with Trinity Direct of Maryville.  Born and raised in Kerhonkson, NY, she grew up on a dairy farm and then attended Cornell University where she had the distinct privilege of meeting her future husband, Dr. Andrew Smith. One year after she graduated, they were married, and thus began a very enjoyable journey through life.

Through the years they have lived in Burlington, Vermont; Johnson City, New York; Boca Raton, Forida and finally, Maryville, Tennessee. Together they have raised 7 children; Margaret homeschooled each of them, although the youngest three finished up their high school careers at Alcoa High School.

Once she finished homeschooling, she joined Trinity as a receptionist so that she could be a continued support to her husband.

Her outside activities include being involved with Grace Community Church, keeping up with their children, and jogging. More than anything, she would like to be described as someone who loves Jesus.


Christie Michael, RN began working at Trinity Direct of Maryville in February 2017 as Dr. Hone’s nurse. She graduated in 2015 from Pellissippi State Community College with her Associates of Science in Nursing. She has experience in general medical surgical care, specialized in orthopedics, and has completed Stewards of Children education and training.

She enjoys serving her community as a nurse and volunteer. On the weekends she likes to camp, hike, go boating, BBQ, and watch her children play sports.
