STERLING, Va. - March 23, 2015 - PRLog -- Cookology Founder and Owner, Maria Kopsidas, has been named as one of Loudoun County’s Top 20 Most Enterprising Women to Watch. The distinction is part of Loudoun Business Journal’s 2015 list of 100 Women Who Mean Business in Loudoun County. It celebrates the ingenuity of 100 trailblazing women in commemoration of Women’s History Month, highlighting their accomplishments, contributions and overall positive impact on both the business and economic communities of Loudoun County. The recognition also included a business leaders roundtable discussion in which Kopsidas participated last month with only nine of the other honorees.

Coming off a strong 2014, Kopsidas was among very few of the honorees to be profiled as one of the Top 20 Enterprising Women to Watch, participate in last month’s roundtable discussion and be selected and photographed for the cover of the magazine. Her company increased revenues, grew its staff and expanded its offerings for classes and catering. They partnered with local restaurants, catering companies and hyper-local farms to boost business within the county and will roll out a professional culinary program later on this year.

“2014 was a great year for us. We took on new projects and grew tremendously, so being included on this list is a huge accomplishment,” says Maria Kopsidas, Cookology Founder and Owner. “It’s a testament to the hard work and commitment of my staff, as it certainly could not have happened without them!”

Other honorees on the full list of 100 women include Frances Craig, CEO of UNANET; Brittany Rose, CEO of MoreThanCheer; Tina Johnson, CEO of JP Events & Consulting; Andrea McGimsey, Executive Director of Oatlands and Crystal Owens, Managing Editor of The Loudoun Times-Mirror, among many others.

“The women on this list are amazing and worth their weight in gold for the incredible things they’re doing to grow and give back to the community,” Kopsidas states. “...I truly feel honored to be in such great company!”
