At her home on Signal Mountain, Kate Kinnear cares for dozens and dozens of squirrels.

She is a wildlife rehab expert, certified by the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency - and her home is a sanctuary for squirrels from newborns to weeks or even months old.



Beyond the sanctuary, Kate is a lecturer on our campus, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
