About Me

About Me

I am  Julie Carroll, owner of The Friendly Fork and a lifelong resident of Covington, VA. I am a wife, mother and grandmother (and dog mama). In my free time I enjoy cooking, camping, decorating and crafting. I thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for the opportunity to serve the residents of the Alleghany Highlands and surrounding areas.
