Dr. Powell thinks that his lifestyle and hobbies would be a bore to most. With a smile he admits to having a weird affinity for mowing the lawn, and says he loves the look of a well-manicured lawn. Perhaps it is because Dr. Powell spent most of his childhood in places that just don’t have the lush greenery of Tennessee. His wife is his best friend, which he says he loves to hang out with her so much that she has to be annoyed by him at times. They are likely to be working out together, or just relaxing while enjoying a movie. The Powell’s are very excited to be welcoming a new addition to their family coming in the month of March 2022, and the preparation and anticipation of all of this has been quite fun, which by the way, “It’s a boy”.
Dr. Powell and his wife are just honored and humbled to be a part of the legacy that Dr. Cooley and Dr. Flex have built, and are very excited to get to meet you and your loved ones as well.
