As a long-time resident of Wrightsville Beach, and having worked in distribution and finance within a local, family-run business for 25 years, I have made a lot of wonderful personal and business contacts. I’ve been lucky to live a lifestyle that has exposed me to the responsibilities of maintaining a business, a waterfront residence, large and small watercraft, and varied travel plans national and abroad. Having had these experiences and contacts, I found that on a day-to-day basis I was spending a lot of time answering calls from others looking for business service referrals, organizational ideas, and generally, advice. I so enjoyed helping these friends, colleagues, and neighbors find answers to their needs, it inspired me to create my business, Coastal Concierge by Kelly Barnes. My goal is to create a business that thrives on providing quality assistance to others. They say knowledge is useless when not shared. It would give me the utmost pleasure to know my business sense, organizational skills, love for design and local resources, can be put to use to help others enjoy the coastal lifestyle I have been so fortunate to experience, living in this beautiful town.
