Meet Board & Brush Newport News Owners
Julie Hoegger, Allison Carter & Meleah Carter

Julie served in the Air Force as a nurse practitioner before leaving to work at CHKD as an orthopedic pediatric nurse practitioner. Julie and her husband Austin, an accomplished brewmaster in the area, have one fur baby named Brewer. They have many similar passions including snowboarding, wake boarding, travel, and beer! Allison’s career has been providing physical therapy services to children with special needs and disabilities. 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. Both love all the New England sports teams. They also have a bird named Captain Jack, and a cat named Dexter. Meleah has been involved in marine animal training as well as other animal care positions since graduating high school. Meleah is from Florida, which is where she met her husband Zach working together at a marine park. They decided to move their family of Boston terriers, cat, and bird to Virginia for a great career change for Zach who is now a medical sales rep. Their husbands are all great friends and they go golfing together every week!

As a Wisconsin native, Julie was familiar with Board & Brush Creative Studio and definitely has a passion for crafts. She hosts monthly craft nights and has a craft room set up in her home. Talking as a group one night, we decided that opening a Bb would be a great venture for the three of us. 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. Allison is always so supportive of her friends and family and saw this as a great opportunity for the three of us!
