Owner/Physician, Epiphanea Center for Aesthetic Medicine
Once upon a time, Dr. Stacey Hedlund was an aerobics instructor, a gymnastics coach, a phlebotomist, a morgue attendant, a law clerk and a dispatcher. Now, you can just call her "Dr. H."
She owns and operates Epiphanea Center for Aesthetic Medicine, which specializes in skin and body transformations.
"With just two years under my belt as CEO, the greatest achievement for me has been the growth of my business," Hedlund says. "Our gross revenue projection for 2009 is more than a 100% increase over 2008. To have doubled profitability in a 'down' economy is an astounding feat and a great honor."
But she sees her success as a gift, and is more than happy to give back. Epiphanea has actively run fund-raising campaigns for Toys for Tots, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Infant Crisis Services. It also contributes to many local charities.
"The ability to contribute to so many varied local community charities is one of the most rewarding aspects of being an individual business owner," she says.
Hedlund is giving of her services, as well, donating treatment to a local crime victim who was nearly murdered two years ago. Says the woman of Dr. H, "She is a wonderful person."
