Managing Director -
Women Owned Small Business Division
Mrs. Loper is a proven small business leader with over 15 years of experience successfully building, staffing and managing small local businesses. Mrs. Loper is a respected small business leader within her community and brings extensive hands-on experience in running every facet of retail operations. In addition to her duties as a co-founder, Mrs. Loper provides mentoring to Women Owned Small Businesses.
Mrs. Loper began her small business education as a teenager working for her father’s local Army Navy Surplus store. The evenings and weekends spent working in a small retail store environment enabled her to acquire valuable business operation knowledge from her father and gain experience in every facet of retail operations to include sales, staging, pricing, marketing, staffing, transaction management, inventory control and forecasting. In addition, she 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. Her skills as an effective manager and business woman enabled her to supervise over 20 employees that included both U.S. citizens and Greek nationals. 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.
After leaving Greece, Mrs. Loper concentrated on raising a family, but several years later, re-entered the workforce part-time in a local small retail business. Within months, she was asked to take over the management and operation of the business because of her expert management skills and business acumen. Soon after, Mrs. Loper was approached by a local non-for profit organization to manage their local retail store. At the time of her hire, the retail store operated in a 5,000 square foot facility, and consisted of a staff of 2 employees and dozens of volunteers. With her expert knowledge of sales and operations, she was instrumental in growing the retail store platform over the past 10 years into a 25,000 square foot facility with over 30 full time employees and 300 plus local volunteers. Her skill as a small business manager enabled the non-for profit organization to become one of the most successful local small businesses in the area and earn a reputation as one of the most efficiently run retail stores within the community.
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.
She is graduate of the University of Maryland with a degree in Liberal Arts.
