SHERWOOD COOKE JR.
Sherwood Jr. was born in Portsmouth Naval Hospital. He moved from Virginia Beach to St. Mary’s in 1980. Sherwood has been in the automotive business for 27 years. He also has been coaching youth hockey for 15 years and is Director of Coaching at our local ice rink. His passions include – automotive technical training (sounds dorky but he loves to spend hours studying automotive technology), coaching kids, helping other coaches learn how to impact children in a positive way, spending time with his son and traveling.
Sherwood III was born here in Saint Marys. He loves spending his weekends with his son, who is 3 years old. He also volunteers at the hockey rink and loves coaching kids of all ages, specifically goalies. He has played hockey since he was 6 years and has been a goalie since the very beginning. He absolutely loves sports and could sit down and watch virtually any game no matter what it is! His goal is to someday own the business and really change the way the automotive repair industry is viewed. He wants to take customer service to an entirely different level. He loves meeting new people and is super talkative and outgoing. He has had the pleasure of working at Royalty Auto Service since 2009, but has been around the business his entire life, and has truly grown to the love the industry in which he works in.
Hi, my name is Karen Kilgore and I joined the Royalty Auto team in 2022. When I am not at work I am usually volunteering or doing something outside. My husband and I enjoy being scout leaders with our son and daughter. We spend a lot of time camping and exploring the Georgia state parks. In 2021 we decided our family needed a crazy adventure so we lived full time in a RV, traveled to 13 states, and visited Yellowstone, the Badlands, and Dinosaur National Parks.
My name is Maegan, I am a mother to a sassy little girl named Charlotte, a wife to an amazing man named Casey, and I have two dogs named Leia and Samantha. I am originally from Medford, Oregon and spent the first part of my childhood between there and Bremerton, Washington. I moved to Camden County in 2002 and we have been in Georgia since. No matter how long I am in the south, I will always wish to be in the mountains away from the heat. My husband and I ventured out of Camden for about 5 years and found our way back here in 2018. If you don’t see me at work, I am most likely in my kitchen cooking or out and about with my little family. We love going to restaurants and traveling around to visit family and just explore new places to eat! I got my start in the automotive industry when we moved back here and I started delivering parts. I started here at Royalty in October of 2019 as a client relations specialist and now I am a service advisor. I never thought I would have a career in the automotive industry but since being at Royalty, I do not see myself anywhere else. I love all of the knowledge I have gained and continue to learn. I love being able to interact with all of our clients and the relationships that have been built. I am looking forward to many more years with everyone!
Hi there! The Navy sent my husband and me to the Camden area beginning of 2019, we’re originally from the snowy land of Minnesota. We have a couple cats, Harrison and Little and we live a pretty simple but amazing life together. We love to try new foods and experiences whenever we get the chance so we’re constantly on the lookout for different ways to spend our time together. I really value being in the moment and making the most out of every opportunity. Camden has treated us kindly and I am so grateful to be involved in this amazing team at Royalty that is able to provide honest and positive experiences to so many in the community.
Blissfully married mom of 2. I'm originally from central Florida and moved to Camden County in 2015 on a PCS move. We fell in love with the slower paced, small town life and after my husband left the navy we decided to raise our kids here. I'm a navy reservist and on the weekends I love going to the beach with my husband and kids. I buy more books than I could possibly read in a lifetime and enjoy trying all kinds of new food. I started at Royalty in 2022 and I look forward to being more involved in the community through Royalty and all that they do!
Hey! My name is Sabrina. I am a mom to 2 beautiful little girls: Harper, my shy sassy girl, and Rylee, my outgoing adventurous girl. I was born in California and moved to Georgia when I was 10 years old. I spent a few years in Illinois and Nebraska before moving back to Georgia. The small town feel and southern hospitality has always brought me back to Camden County. My kids favorite things to do are playdates at our friends house, going to the skate park, and going to the beach so we spend most of our weekends doing these activities. I also love trying new restaurants, exploring new places, and (on occasion) relaxing at home. I started at Royalty Auto Service in 2019 working in a Clients Relations position. I had around 8 years of customer service experience when I started and thought this was a great opportunity that would enable me to continue working with and helping people. I had no prior automotive experience and was a little intimidated to be a female working in the industry, but with encouragement and direction from the Sherwoods, I am happy to be making Service Advising a career. I look forward to raising my kids here, growing in my career, and being able to take care of the people in our community.
My name is Marlayna Rose, but most people just call me Marly. I am currently residing in Kingsland with my wonderful husband, our two energetic girls, and our four wild animals. On the weekends you could find my family catching rays at the beach or enjoying a fun-filled BBQ with all our close friends and family. Being a military child, I moved to Camden from Connecticut in 2006. In 2013, I left Camden for 4 years to further my education at Georgia Southern. I moved back home in 2017 to begin building my beautiful family. In October 2020, I embarked on the adventure of joining the Royalty family. I could not be happier to have been blessed with this opportunity.
Hey! My name is Clayton. I enjoy hanging out with my dog Joey and playing video games. One of my favorite games right now is Elden Ring. I also love going to car shows with my friends. We always have a great time. I also like to participate in auto cross events from time to time in my Honda S2000. I’ve worked at Royalty since 2019 and really enjoy learning new things about this industry and am excited to grow!
Hey! My name is Kristina.

Hey! My name is Mike and I have been working on vehicles since I was 16 years old. My passion does not only include motorcycles and diesel engines but also marine vessels. I have worked at a few different shops since moving to Georgia in 2010 but am very grateful to have found my home in the Royalty family!
I am a father of three, and also a grandfather. I have been married for 12 years. I enjoy spending my weekends mowing my lawn. If I have no grass left to cut, I will mow the neighbors. I love my action movies but don't let me fool you, my nature shows will bring a tear to my eye. I like my music loud and can cook the best steak in town!
Hey! My name is Mike Roddy and I have been shepherding in local churches around the southeast United States from Tennessee to Florida for over 30 years. Born and raised in south Louisiana, I joined the Navy when I was 18 and spent 6 years serving our country. It was during my time in the military when the Lord called me to salvation. At the age of 25, while working in law enforcement and attending a local Bible college, I was called by the Lord into the gospel ministry and was ordained. I have served various churches in many positions such as Pastor of Worship, Student Ministries, Men's Ministries, Education, Family, and Evangelism. My primary passion is evangelism, discipleship, prayer, and serving the people of God.
I am married to my lovely wife, Genia, and we have two grown children Caleb and Chelsie who serve the Lord with their families at Awakening Church as well. My primary role at Awakening church is preaching verse by verse through the scriptures each Sunday, ministering to all members and attendees through intercessory prayer, and sharing the gospel in our community through natural and creative platforms in accordance with Romans 10:14-18.
The most important thing I would like to be remembered by is that I spent time with Christ in His Word and that I loved God and people.
Hey! My name is Derek.
Hey! My name is Andrew and I am a Georgia native. I have always been one to tinker and figure out how parts work, which helped fuel my passion for automotive repair. I studied automotive at UTI in Chicago and have been in the industry for over 15 years. Since graduating, I have worked in shops in Illinois, Jacksonville, and Atlanta before finding my home at Royalty.
I have been married for almost 10 years and have a one-year-old son. I and my family stay busy with our mini-farm in White Oak. When not working, we love to spend time in the beautiful coastal weather. I love fishing and being on the water. When not on the water, I enjoy being in the woods, hunting, and shooting archery. I started working for Royalty in May of 2018. I enjoy the weather, lack of traffic, and community Royalty services and fosters in their company.
Hey! My name is Elizabeth.
Hi, my name is Trey, but in the shop, I go by Curly. I started at Royalty in 2022, and love working with all the great people here. I’m from Honolulu, Hawaii. I like practicing guitar, making anyone laugh, and being anywhere where there’s water. My interest in classic cars drove me to learn more about how I can fix them. I have a little dachshund at home named Jones, who loves to help me in the garage. Being able to do what I love here in the shop, pushes me to try my best and expand my knowledge.
