April 2017 – My Leadership Loudoun Story

Raham Parker, Executive Director, Loudoun Free ClinicLeadership Loudoun was a tremendous experience I hold in high regard and it has helped me better understand how the business of professional relationships is key to any business growth that a leader creates. I am the Executive Director of the Loudoun Free Clinic, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, that focuses on serving the healthcare needs of uninsured Loudoun County adult residents ages 18 to 64 and at 200% or below of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. We offer primary care, specialty care, laboratory testing, medications, and radiologic imaging and little to no cost to our patients. We also offer a chance at rebuilding the mind, body, and spirit of those in need.

March 2017 – My Leadership Loudoun Story

Rusty Foster, President Bow Tie StrategiesI grew up in Loudoun County, so naturally, I thought I knew everything there was to know. We even learned about local history and took field trips to all of the historic Loudoun sites in elementary school. However, I was wrong. Leadership Loudoun opened my eyes to more than the history of Loudoun. Leadership Loudoun opened my eyes to the inner workings of the Loudoun County government, nonprofit organizations, and how our local economy depends on taxes and data centers. I choose to live in Loudoun County, to have my business located in Loudoun County, and to play in Loudoun County. I feel like after graduating from Leadership Loudoun, I have a better understanding of how to grow my business in Loudoun County and I’m thankful for that opportunity. And, I met some awesome people that are great friends today!
