Peyton Smith & Steve Quinn, STR Code Enforcement Officer.
Hey! I’m Peyton Smith, a recent college graduate from Albion College in Michigan.  With prior experience in Code Enforcement in my hometown of Sandusky, Ohio,  I recently  moved to Charleston to begin my new career, to explore the Lowcountry, and to start my new journey. I am excited to meet the Folly Beach community and keep this amazing beach town beautiful. In my free time I like to read, find new recipes, and of course lie by the ocean!   

Steve Quinn. Steve rounds out the STR team and has been here a few weeks already getting settled.  He is a married father of two and came to Folly from the NYS retirement system for the City of Binghamton.
Please call/email/or stop by to say hello if you haven’t already.
