Meet the DLM Family

  • Katherine Dean
  • Love Cakes by DLM Manager
  • Katherine Dean is what we call “homegrown” as she began working for DLM in 2003 at the age of 15. She started working on the Front End, but went on to Grocery, Bakery Retail, and Specialty Cheese where she helped produce DLM Handmade Fresh Mozzarella. After a short time working in the cake shop, Katherine enlisted in the Ohio Army National Guard and was gone for 5 months of basic training and advanced individual training. Upon her return, she began helping in our Killer Brownie® production, eventually becoming the manager. She served in that capacity for over a year, but decided to take on a new challenge when a management position became available in Love Cakes by DLM. Katherine has served as the manager since December 2012. She enjoys the challenge and opportunity to use her creative talent in helping our customers celebrate their
    Delicious Life Moments.
