Brandi Leigh Garrett, passed away on February 26, 2021 at her home in Terrell, NC at the young age of 41 years old.

Brandi started riding horses as a child and continued to ride until a devastating car accident in 1995 left her paralyzed from the waist down. While this event did pose a challenge, Brandi stepped up and took the challenge head on; not only did she survive, she thrived.

She had the biggest heart and would help anybody anyway she could.

Her goal was to be Dr. B! Brandi had a long and successful career in human resources. Most recently she held the position ofDirector of Finance and Human Resources at Net Vision Consultants.
