Alisa Moody is one of those rare souls with the technical depth, artistic flair and business acumen to make your website shine. Her website development crosses myriad industries over the past decade and half – since before they took over as the proverbial front door and first impression of your organization. A native of Florida who grew up in the tiny hamlet of Banner Elk, N.C., Alisa has resided in the New River Valley most of the past 23 years. She was instrumental in redesigning and launching seven websites for the National Rifle Association and the same number for Giles County, the latter which she maintains still.
Her resume includes management positions in hospitality, retail, skiing and equine businesses, as well as freelance artist and fine art photographer. She is the mother of two, and her son, Brandon Forrest Eggleston became a highly decorated Special Ops Staff Sergeant in the Army prior to him having made the ultimate sacrifice for his country. Brandon was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2012, leaving a wife and two small children. Alisa’s daughter and her twin sons, Jack and Zack, reside in Blacksburg.
Fifteen years ago, Alisa founded Wild Country Studios in Giles County from which she designs ads, catalogs, brochures, websites and branding materials for companies across a multi-state region. As a professional freelance photographer, her photos have made the cover of Virginia and Roanoke business publications multiple times. She is the brains behind BlueRidgeAdventures.org, formerly BlueRidgeHighlands.org, which promotes Virginia lodging, dining, events, attractions, wine and brew trails and more.
In 2005, Alisa married Paul Moody, who is the proprietor and outfitter for New River’s Edge, which he owns on the New River outside Pembroke. They are in the throes of planning Eagle Ridge Lodge & Resort (eagleriverlodgeresort.com).
