A master of lyricism and a skilled poet, Kevin puts his outgoing personality and communications skills to work at Merrifield Garden Center by overseeing the sales, marketing and customer service teams. As the youngest member of the original Warhurst clan, Kevin practically grew up at the garden center, spending lots of time at the store as a child and working on the weekends in high school and during summer breaks from college. After graduating from Virginia Tech in 1989 with a degree in political science and communications, Kevin worked on Capitol Hill for a U.S. Senator for three years. Although he considered going to law school and other career options involving politics and public policy, he decided to join the family business full time in 1993. In his free time, Kevin enjoys playing golf with his brother Rob, watching sports and news shows, and spending time with his two daughters.
