An Extraordinary Woman in Business

Alumna Erica Dorsett was named one of 40 Top Women in Business by Delaware Today magazine. The 2020 graduate first attended then-Wilmington College in the early 2000s, then returned to complete her bachelor’s in Marketing.

“I am so proud of my time at WilmU and actively use the skills I learned in my business,” she says. 

Co-owner of the Wilmington- based First State Hood & Duct, Dorsett founded the commercial kitchen exhaust cleaning and maintenance company in 2009 with her husband, Clarence Dorsett. The company serves clients in Delaware, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey. 

“I am extremely honored to be named as one of Delaware’s Top Women in Business,” Dorsett said in a release. “I can honestly say it has been nothing short of the grace of God that our company has been able to become one of the best kitchen exhaust cleaning providers in the country. Surrounding ourselves with great people, putting the customer first, and continuing to educate ourselves over the years have been key components to the success my husband and I have experienced thus far. I am happy to be included among these inspiring and trailblazing women.”
