164 Millennium - A Marquis Who’s Who Magazine ENTREPRENEURS Hailing from humble beginnings, Dawn Marie Herlocher began making candles in a small shed. Turning the shed into a quaint workshop, Ms. Herlocher sold her unique candles out of the shed for the next 11 years. As time progressed and more customers attested to the quality and scent of her candles, she was able to open a bigger store. Currently, she excels as the owner and candle maker of Main Street Scents in Loganton, Pennsylvania, which she commenced in 2008. Alongside her primary pursuits in entrepreneurship, Ms. Herlocher has also excelled as a business executive for Liberty Workforce since 2006. Prior to opening Liberty Workforce, she worked for a small staffing company and managed payroll until the owner moved to Florida, when she took over in managing the business. Upon the occurrence of a fire at the main facility, the owner asked Ms. Herlocher to set up a second facility, now known as Liberty Workforce. Likewise, she has also served as a recruiter for Reliable Valley Services since 2018, which was founded in an effort to help companies recruit employees to put them on a payroll. Previously, she worked in accounting for Nicholas Meets and as an office manager for Wynn Sport. Ms. Herlocher attributes her success to following her goals, her ability to keep moving forward and her drive to succeed. She holds an Associate of Science in business management from the Pennsylvania College of Technology in 1998. Although her career has been filled with highlights, she is especially proud of helping others find work in an ever-changing economic climate. Civically involved as well, she has often donated to fundraisers for underserved communities. Looking toward the future, Ms. Herlocher intends to franchise her Main Street Scents business across the United States, as well as expand the facilities to accommodate more employees. With respect to Liberty Workforce and Reliable Valley Services, Ms. Herlocher would also like to continue growing both businesses.
