In addition to her duties as a co-founder, Mrs. Loper provides mentoring to Women Owned Small Businesses. Mrs. Loper understands the challenges women business owners and managers face on daily basis and is often sought out by others within the business community for advice and guidance.

Mrs. Loper began her small business education as a teenager working for her father’s local Army Navy Surplus store where she acquired valuable business operation knowledge from her father and learned a strong work ethic and what it takes to build a successful small business. Several years later, after graduating college and starting a family, Mrs. Loper began her corporate career while living in Athens, Greece as a United States Air Force dependent. She worked for 3 years as the Front Area Manager for a five-star resort hotel owned and operated by the U.S. government in Athens. During her tenure as the Front Area Manager, the hotel was selected as the top government run hotel facility in the United States Air Force European Command.
