Jennifer Neil – owner
Proud mom of two beautiful children, Jennifer is the hands-on owner of Tile Sensations, Knoxville’s source for all things Tile . With over 20 years’ experience in the tile Industry, Jennifer brings her unique view of tile design from living and traveling within the US and abroad. While Tile Sensations primarily serves clients in the Knoxville area, projects include residential & commercial jobs from Maine to Florida, and as far west as Arizona. This is partially because Jennifer knows how to market her business, but also because she finds friends everywhere she goes. In addition to running a small business and somehow maintaining a social life, Jennifer stays active in her community, frequently volunteers her time and is very active in The Haiti Outreach Program, serving the community of Boucan Carre, Haiti.

Katie Passarello – showroom manager
As official master package tracker, Katie either knows, or will find out, answers to all your order questions. This girl dots her i’s and crosses her t’s, but don’t let that fool you: she’s got an eye for color and a great sense of style to boot! She’s also a great listener, and really cares about each customer’s order. Katie doesn’t have a lot of free time, but what time she has, she prefers to spend with her friends. Don’t be surprised if you spot Katie, with her new husband Andrew, at a concert or festival, as music is her long-time, not-so-secret love. Trendy yet individual, Katie keeps our staff on top of the ball, while inspiring everyone to look at things with a new perspective, both in design and in life.
Whitney Wolff – designer
Whitney is a rising star with a lot to offer! She graduated summa cum laude, was Student of Merit at Pellissippi in 2014, and graduated from ETSU with a degree in interior design. Native to Wisconsin, she is a Packers fan and loves cheese (naturally)! She has a soft spot for giraffes (or really, any animal) enjoys photography, painting and fishing, but absolutely hates shoe shopping! Whitney’s bubbly laugh invites laughter in return. Current on all the trends, if you’re looking for a fresh take on tile design or what’s up-and-coming, Whitney is your girl!
Megan Freeman – designer
Megan, our newest staff designer, is often the first person you will see when you enter Tile Sensations. Her warm manner lets you know immediately that she really cares about your project. Megan is an ETSU graduate with a Bachelors Degree in Interior Design and her not so secret design passion is Kitchens and Baths. Megan is newly married to Ivan and they are the proud owners of a new home here in Knoxville. In Megan’s free time you will either find her repurposing furniture or binge watching Netflix.

Stop in soon to work with Megan on your project, you will love her design style and ideas for your space!
Chris Whisman – warehouse
Chris is Tile Sensations’ Lord of the Lift Truck, and is always the first person to see a client’s order off the pallet. He may work behind the scenes, but work he does; Chris loads, unloads, counts, sorts, checks and double checks every order coming in or going out of Tile Sensations’ warehouse. He likes to listen to country music, but loves watching The Price is Right! Talk to Chris if you ever need a good laugh, as he is always full of jokes and is usually up on the latest news stories. He will brighten your day with his perpetually good mood, and always lends a helping hand when you need that particular sample off the very top shelf!
