Hey now! My name is Derrick McKee, and I was born-and-raised in Wheeling, WV. I attended West Virginia University, earned a BS in Business/Marketing, and an MS in Industrial Relations. I sell vaccines for a global company during the day, and have plenty of hobbies, passions, and pursuits that keep me busy at night, and on the weekends!
My wife, Morgan, and our two Italian Greyhounds, Simon and Jasper, are my immediate world. They bring me so much happiness on a daily basis, it’s ridiculous. We moved back to Wheeling during the summer of 2014 to be closer to all of our good friends and family, who also keep us busy, and enrich our lives.
Morgan and I like to stay busy. Our idea of a great Friday is: walking the dogs, heading to a wine tasting, and then grabbing a delicious dinner. The crazier the food, the better. Saturdays we like to hit walking trails, or do something new outdoors. I personally love trying new experiences, and am generally high on life.
We love to travel, and prioritize vacations away. Whether it’s lounging on the beach in the Caribbean, or exploring the misty mountains of Ireland, our goal is to get away and experience other cultures, and embed those experiences back into our daily lives, and into Wheeling.
I love Wheeling, and feel it’s a great city going through a reinvention. I hope to be a part of building it as it catches its second wind, and love interacting with anyone who feels the same. If you see me out, please say hello and introduce yourself!
