Owner of The Barn at Cedar Grove


I'm the owner and manager of The Barn at Cedar Grove.  I'm the one wearing all the hats behind the scenes! I'm married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 grown children and 8 grandchildren.  My background has taught me a vast array of valuable things, which I am grateful for!  There is simply no substitute for experience. I spent most of my adult life working in the office management and bookkeeping side of our family business. With a crafty nature and a lover of pretty things...a hopeless romantic at heart and an entrepreneurial spirit, God's divine plan was coming full circle.  I soon found myself totally immersed in my daughter's vision to repurpose our old tobacco barn for her wedding reception.  Once the word got out about her beautiful wedding in our breathtaking setting we had just the encouragement we needed to move forward with a venue.  A venue that continues to evolve with each passing year.
