Kim is also the fun-loving owner of Kim Moody Design & the retail store “trend.”, who balances life as a mother, wife, and boss lady all wrapped into one smart business gal. Kim created Kim Moody Design out of the simple love of a good party. She is a master of many trades, a collector of knowledge, and wise beyond her years. Kim is a mentor to many and a firm believer that family is the most important thing in life. She is always up for an adventure and the lake is her happy place. Her calm nature brings you instant peace, and her strong will can, and has, made the impossible happen.
Kim's Master's Degree in Conflict Transformation with an emphasis in Negotiation has given her a very specialized niche in the wedding industry. She has spoken at national wedding conferences across the United States for audiences as large as 3,000 event professionals. She has a wall full of diplomas and educational certificates and is constantly enrolling herself in something to continue learning and growing as an individual!
Although very business-minded, Kim lets her vibrant and contagious personality shine through! When she isn’t working, you will find her having a blast at the lake. She values the weekends at Lake Gaston with her son, daughter, husband, and lake-loving friends. You’ll find her swimming, boating and hanging on the dock in the sunshine. Who said a boss lady couldn’t have a little fun?
Andrew is a numbers guy through and through. He is the one that keeps our company together, the checkbook balanced, and the bills paid on time.
He's a gentle father, kind-hearted, a sounding board, and a family man. This guy is crazy about Hokie Football; as an alumnus of Virginia Tech, in his younger "child-free" years, Andrew attended a few games each season for many years after College. These days he is lucky to catch a game or two a year on tv from his living room.
With a Degree in Property Management and Minors in Business and Real Estate, Andrew is the perfect caretaker for managing the property for our team. This Spring he will be spending a few days per week on a lawnmower preparing the property for weddings and events. Andrew is looking forward to that quiet time and a slight break from the monotony of his computer screen.
He has spent his career as an Accountant and Bookkeeper for small businesses and he continues to do so under his own company, "Stewardship Solutions." We are fortunate to have him as part of our in-house team at River Run.
