Anita Cooper | Owner and Chief Creative Officer of Kingwood Promotions
Growing up in a military family, Anita Cooper is accustomed to being on the move. From Texas to the Philippines and places in between like New Jersey, Minnesota and Florida, Cooper has called many zip codes home. But Texas has won her heart. Cooper returned to Texas in 2005. An outdoor enthusiast, Cooper says she loves the people in Texas and the proximity to the coast. “The Lake Houston Area has so much to offer in regards to shopping, restaurants, entertainment and outdoor activities, there really is no need to leave town. With Houston so close as well as the coastal areas, I’m so blessed to call it home. I also love the weather and enjoy southern living again,” Cooper said. “The decision to get involved in your community should come from your heart, and it’s your heart the community needs.” Cooper started her small business in the Lake Houston Area in 2009. She says her passion is to work in an environment where she can make a difference in her own community. With no plans to relocate again, she is happily rooted in the Lake Houston community and is owner and Chief Creative Officer of Kingwood Promotions. What does Kingwood Promotions do? Well, one might say Cooper and her staff are helpers — in every way. “I help my customers get customers; by that I mean through the power of promotional products I can help them attract new customers and improve client relations. I also help them improve customer retention, increase repeat business, encourage and motivate staff, express appreciation and cultivate goodwill in the community,” Cooper said. “I enjoy being part of a team that can brainstorm and create ideas or events to help promote a cause or entity,” Cooper said. Well versed in helping others on the business front, Cooper is also no stranger to volunteerism and says it was her business that ignited her passion for giving back to the community. Currently, Cooper is a member of the Board of Directors for the Greater East Montgomery County Chamber and oversees the Membership Committee. She is a Humble Citizens Police Academy Alumni and serves during the Good Oil Days, Christmas Parade, Police Association Crawfish Boil and volunteers monthly at Humble Municipal Court House for traffic court. Cooper also serves as an Ambassador for the Lake Houston Area Chamber where she volunteers for various events as well as for the Annual Total Resource Campaign. “Volunteering brings people together where you can make a difference and every person counts,” Cooper said. “A memorable moment for me happens each year when I volunteer at the Humble Thanksgiving Feast at the Civic Center. Helping the people of our community get meals when otherwise they would have none keeps me humble and thankful. My heart is full when I see how many people are fed and they are so appreciative.” Cooper’s passions lie beyond her business and volunteer work. “I am most passionate about roles that allow me to help people directly to realize their goals and potential growth in our community,” Cooper said.
