7 Things You Should Know About Loretta
- Loretta started the company that would eventually become DelCor right out of college. (She graduated summa cum laude, after all.)
- Initially, Loretta was one of few professionals in the region writing custom database programs. She even formed the DC area's first R:BASE user group.
- In 2003, DelCor launched the first .org Community Food Drive under Loretta's leadership. (The annual event has touched hundreds in the local asssociation and nonprofit community, providing more than 388,000 meals to the Capital Area Food Bank.)
- In 2007, Loretta was named an ASAE Fellow, an honor bestowed upon less than 1% of ASAE's membership.
- At the 2015 ASAE Annual Meeting in Detroit, Loretta accepted the Academy of Leaders Award with a prosecco-inspired speech.
- Though her roots are Italian, Loretta was born in Washington, DC.
- Loretta's been quoted as saying, "Don't be scared of trying things. Go for it." Perhaps it was that fearlessness that led her to jump out of a plane a few years ago. She's one of nearly a dozen skydivers at DelCor!
