Dorothea Benton Frank is a best-selling author, public speaker and nonprofit fundraiser.

She attended Bishop England High School in Charleston and graduated from General William Moultrie High School in 1969.

She returned to Charleston, SC in 1973 and became a buyer for Kerrison's Department Store. In 1974 she was hired by Byer California and moved to San Francisco, CA. A year later she moved to New York City and went to work on Seventh Avenue for Fire Islander Sportswear, Heralcorp Industries and Michael Lerner. She retired from the apparel industry in 1985.
