Our Crew

Jean Ann Fawcett – Jean and “Big Mike” Fawcett founded Redbud Marina in 1976. Big Mike oversees operations from Heaven now, and Jean is still part of our daily operations. From the office to the RV Park garden to the docks, Jean can be found just about anywhere on the property. We are blessed to have her as a resource of wisdom.

Michael Fawcett – The son of Big Mike and Jean Ann, Michael is our general manager. Michael’s employment focuses mostly on boat transport and being an ASA sailing instructor. He often plays live music in the evenings on the weekends at our Oar House restaurant on the water.

Danny Brazeal – Danny started out at Redbud Marina as a slip-renter. It was soon discovered that he had the knowledge to execute just about any service or maintenance task on the property, and he is now our service manager. Danny’s background as a business owner/carpenter gives him the knowledge and integrity to ensure professionalism in our service department.

Kyley Vick – The granddaughter of Big Mike and Jean Ann and the daughter of Michael Fawcett, Kyley is our office manager. Kyley grew up at Redbud Marina and takes pride in the family business and it reflects in her way of doing business.

Abbi Hammons – Abbi is our ASA sailing school registrar and she also serves as an executive assistant to our office manager.

Desmond Vick – The grandson-in-law of Big Mike and Jean Ann and the son-in-law of Michael Fawcett, Desmond came into the family when he and our office manager Kyley began their life together. Desmond is following in the footsteps of his father-in-law and if he hasn’t learned how to do something yet, he’ll know soon. His dedication to the marina reflects in his attitude of responsibility and willingness to learn.

Josh Ziegler – Josh has worked at Redbud Marina since he was just a youngster in high school. His years of experience performing tasks all over the property have shaped him into a knowledgeable mechanic and jack-of-all-trades.

Justin Potts – Justin’s life-long experience in welding has equipped him with the knowledge to support our daily operations. Justin is fluent in sign language and is able to communicate through lip reading or written/typed text.

Ashley Buff – Ashley is our part time “support” staff since she is now a full-time college (nursing) student. She’ll be with us until she graduates in the Spring of 2020.
