Meet Board & Brush Newport News Owners

Allison Carter, Meleah Carter & Julie Hoegger

Julie served in the Air Force as a nurse practitioner before leaving to work at Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters where she is currently a pediatric NP. She has a passion for crafts and enjoys getting friends together for craft nights regularly. Julie and her husband Austin, an accomplished brewmaster in the area and an avid curler, have two fur babies. Brewer is a handsome Labrador Retriever who you can often find greeting guests in the studio, and Stella is rescue puppy who has recently joined their family. Julie and Austin share many of the same passions including snowboarding, wake boarding, cooking, traveling the world, and beer! 

Allison has been providing physical therapy services to children with special needs and disabilities in the Newport News area. Allison and her husband Anthony, an orthopedic surgeon, met at Boston University over 30 years ago. They have lived and raised their two kids, Zach and Kaitlyn, in Newport News. They have a bird named Captain Jack and a cat named Dexter. Allison and Tony love all New England sports teams and are well on their way to visiting every professional baseball stadium in the country. In addition to their love of sports, Allison and Tony thoroughly enjoy visiting wineries and breweries, new and familiar. They truly enjoy spending time with friends and family, but most of all, they love being new grandparents.

Meleah is originally from the panhandle of Florida. She is an Animal Care Specialist at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. Her career in animal care and training began at a marine park in her hometown of Fort Walton Beach. She and her husband Zach, a graduate of UVA and fellow animal trainer, met at their previous job in Florida. They love visiting zoos and aquariums wherever they travel. They also attend at least one Zac Brown Band concert every year. Even though Zach and Meleah both loved their jobs working with animals, they decided to move their family of Boston Terriers, a cat, and a bird to Virginia for a great career change for Zach who is now a medical sales representative. They also knew they soon wanted expand their family. In 2018, Meleah and Zach welcomed a beautiful baby girl named Molly.

Being close friends already, Julie, Meleah, and Allison decided to join together as co-owners of the Board and Brush Newport News Studio. As a Wisconsin native, Julie was familiar with the company after attending several workshops including her own bridal shower, which took place at a studio near her hometown of Sheboygan. She fell in love with the idea of opening a studio in Virginia. Talking casually one night, the ladies decided that opening a studio in Virginia would be a great opportunity for the three of them to undertake together. Meleah, being a recent transplant to Virginia and looking for something new, loved the idea of the instructor led atmosphere where she could learn and help people express their creativity. In being such a supportive person, Allison saw this opportunity as a great idea for the community and for her friendship with Julie and Meleah.
