Spotlight on the Finalist: Loudoun Free Clinic

Thanks to Rahman Parker, Executive Director of the Loudoun Free Clinic for answering a few questions with us!

Loudoun Free Clinic – Rahman Parker, Executive Director
Non-Profit Finalist of the Year

 

1.  What would it mean to you and your company to win a Small Business Award?    

It would help my team see how their hard work is impacting the community; and it shows my team that we are making a difference in the lives of our patients.

2.  What business person has influenced you the most?

Garrett A Morgan. He invented the first components of the gas mask, the traffic signal and many other solutions we use today. 

3.  If you weren’t running your own business, what would you be doing?

Helping other entrepreneurs with scaling their business ideas and bringing viable ideas and products to market.

4.  What book are you reading right now?

Theories and Manifestoes of Contemporary Architecture , Edited by Charles Jencks and Karl Kropf

5.  What is your favorite app?

Really enjoy Shazam! The adaptability of that product has been impressive to watch; plus I love good music and it helps me find ‘feel good’ music. 

6.  If you had a full 24 hours off, and your family was out of town, what would you do?

Lay still and rest! Sleep is a privilege. I would also paint or sketch some architecture designs.

7.  What is the smallest thing that has had the largest impact on your business?

The phrase “Thank you”. Whether it’s from patients and/or donors, whenever I hear or say those words, it brings me joy to know how the impact of our work touches so many lives.
