Angie Brady Executive Director

As the new kid on the block, moving to Tennessee from North Carolina, the first time Angie stepped foot in Clarksville was when she was invited to interview for the executive director position. She may be new to Clarksville, but she is no stranger to tourism, hospitality, and the destination marketing world! Visit Clarksville will serve as the fifth DMO that Angie has worked with. She fell into tourism when her college advisor recommended that she take an Intro to Leisure class to boost her GPA so she could get into the School of Communication at NC State University. After that intro class, she changed her major to Parks, Recreation, and Tourism Management. Angie is the fur mom to a 4.7 lb, seven-year-old Shih Tzu named HoneyBea. She also loves Hot Yoga. She prefers sandcastles to snowmen. Begrudgingly rides her Peloton that goes nowhere. Loves to travel to tropical islands. Is a self-professed donut connoisseur. Angie is an enneagram 1 and truly a Taurus!

Natalie Stepneiwski Director of Sales

Natalie was born and raised in the south-central part of Connecticut but has lived and traveled in many different states. Her parents are Polish immigrants who taught her to speak Polish and English simultaneously. Weeks after graduating from Eastern Connecticut State University, she moved to Alaska to become a crew member on a glacier cruise ship. That is where her passion and love for tourism started. She worked CVBs in Anchorage and then Fayetteville, NC when she and her husband PCSed. At these organizations, she was responsible for conducting sales, forming relationships with venues and clients, updating information on area attractions, and managing volunteers and visitor centers. Eventually, she made her way to Clarksville where she took some time crafting cocktails in Nashville. She quickly fell in love with Clarksville and immersed herself in the community. Natalie loves fitness, hiking with her two dogs, and traveling with her husband and family.

Jeff Harris Director of Weakley House Museum

After a long career in banking, Clarksville native Jeff Harris is trying something new. (We think he'll find it quite refreshing!) He grew up in Southside, Tennessee, just south of Clarksville about a mile from what is now Historic Collinsville Pioneer Settlement. The property was purchased by Montgomery County government and Visit Clarksville operates it. Jeff tackled the role of converting and curating the Weakley's private home into a house museum for its April 2024 opening. His house tours interject many personal stories about local history and memories of his childhood riding horses around the property. Jeff's long been dedicated to giving back to the community. He's been president of the United Way and a board member at Leadership Clarksville and the Montgomery County Historical Society. He's a member of First Christian Church and an avid gardener and reader.
