The McCormick Family

Lisa and David McCormick enjoy the peace and quiet of living in Cheat Lake while still being close enough to get to all the action in Morgantown. David, owner of Omega Commercial Interiors and McCormick Properties, also has a consulting firm, Business Development Strategies. Lisa is a Corporate Secretary in charge of Investor Relations for MVB Bank, Inc. They frequently head into town for work, dining and fun. After a long day, they enjoy relaxing on the deck with a glass of wine and the calm surroundings of home.

Lisa and David enjoy a family tradition of spending holidays together. They have Thanksgiving at home, and last year they had their first big Christmas there! Since Dave’s family is from Logan, they spend some holidays apart, but it works out very well. The McCormick family truly values its time together while enjoying life in Cheat Lake.
