Women In Profile Second Quarter 2014
Dale is the general manager of DBCC’S GreatStuff Savvy Resale Boutique located at the Talleyville Center in North Wilmington. Dale opened the upscale resale boutique in October 2010 after closing and “retiring” from her own retail boutique, Dale’s Shoetique” in Greenville. Dale has always exhibited her entrepreneurial spirit in every endeavor she has undertaken. Her multi faceted work experience and leadership skills in retail management, executive relocation management, director of a modeling agency, and her position as an advertising sales executive, all have helped hone her skills in building her business foundation for her next opportunity. That opportunity came soon after having lunch with a friend who works for the Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition. Joining the organization, to open and manage an upscale resale boutique, was Dale’s first time working for a non-profit. Dale states the personal satisfaction she gets from working with the agency and over 50 volunteers at the resale shop, many of whom are breast cancer survivors themselves, has been an eye opening and inspirational experience. “The positive energy that these ladies portray, no matter what their circumstance, is really life altering,” she states. These ladies have made her awareness of the trials and tribulations of persons going thru their own personal journey, while they also celebrate the many success stories of beating this insidious disease. “These stories have opened my eyes to the importance of celebrating life every day”. Learning life skills that you get to embrace each and every day.
“There is a deep feeling of satisfaction I get in helping to generate additional revenue for DBCC so that the agency can continue to provide the support services needed to individuals in our own community who need them.”
Whether you shop at GreatStuff Savvy Resale or the newly opened Great Stuff Home Shop, you not only will find, great stuff, but you will also experience a staff of people who are dedicated, fun loving, inspiring and helpful.
When it is time to relax, you can find her enjoying her other passions, boating on the Chesapeake Bay with friends, gardening, reading and or just hanging out with family and friends.
Caroline Logan’s business routes trace back from international aviation entities such as Arco Oil and the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia (RESA), whose clients consisted of HRH Prince Bandar Bin Sultan, former ambassador to the United States and other world dignitaries. As founder and COO of Lymphedema Clinics of America (LCOA), Caroline leveraged her public relations experience to open Delaware’s first outpatient lymphedema clinic dedicated specifically to lymphedema and its complications.
At the peak of her career, Caroline made the decision to leave the corporate world for the privilege to raise her three children. As her children became of school age, Caroline re-entered into the work force in a management and business development position in retail pharmacy. She was a key player in assisting the principles of Kirkwood Pharmacy and Biotek Remedys during the startup phase, and has built the pharmacy into a profitable entity. Caroline was successful in building a ready made compression stocking business for those with swelling and venous insufficiencies within Kirkwood Pharmacy. With her exposure to key physicians in the medical community, Caroline has identified a deficiency in the health care system with those who suffer with lymphedema.
As a result, Caroline looked further into the proper treatment of lymphedema and became passionate in finding a way to streamline the process for those in need of care. With the outpouring of support from the medical community, Caroline collaborated with Ian Mclean, former Executive Vice President of Exelon Corporation and former CEO of the Exelon Transmission Company to bring LCOA to fruition. She is grateful to have someone like Ian Mclean as CEO of LCOA. The two partners are dedicated in bringing hope, healing and awareness for those suffering with lymphedema. Caroline and Ian’s plans are to open their second clinic in the near future in Dover, DE.
LCOA is currently offering educational meetings within the medical community as they campaign for better awareness for lymphedema. Any physician office, cancer society, hospital or individuals who would like to learn more about what LCOA has to offer can call the clinic and schedule an appointment for LCOA to come and speak about lymphedema.
