Linda Stout, Assistant Director of Logistics
Hey! My name is Linda. I was born and raised outside of Philadelphia. I graduated from Maietta College in Ohio earning a degree in Sports Medicine and Athletic Training. After graduating I took a job with an Orthopedic Practice In Allentown Pa where I spent 20 years working as an LAT ATC working with the High School athletes.
Sports have always been a big part of my life, I have competed in everything from softball, XC, track , triathlons and bike racing. Bike racing turned out to be life changing as that is where I met my husband while racing at the local Velodrome. We moved to Greensboro as a result of his job relocation. Moving to NC allowed me to take a break from working full time to raise our sons.
I came to Lucky Dog in August of 2022 after working a few other part time jobs that in the end just didn't speak to me. Fortunately, a former coworker had already found Lucky Dog. She reached out and asked me to come see what Lucky Dog was about. It didn't take long before I found this was an organization that I wanted to be part of with excellent leadership and the best coworkers. I love the pace and fluid nature of working in the warehouse as well as working with our college age part- time workers. Lucky Dog is constantly growing and improving as a company. I appreciate the collaborative culture and being part of a team, whose success comes from having high expectations and a supportive environment. I couldn't ask for a better company to work for.
We have our own lucky dog -Piper. We adopted her from the Guilford animal shelter when she was about a year old after being there for 9 months. She had a lot of baggage, and we could tell she had some bad experiences along the way. With a lot of patience and love she has blossomed into a loveable yet quirky member of our family. She was 1 of 2 dogs we had. Rosie our other dog developed kidney failure and crossed the rainbow bridge on April 15, 2018. Our youngest son wanted us to get another dog to keep Piper company, but we saw Piper was happier in a 1 dog house. He was persistent about finding her a friend. We were at the pet store in August and there were lots of kittens. There was one in particular we asked about. It turns out he was part of a litter of newborn kittens found in the destruction caused by the tornado that hit the east side of Greensboro on April 15th! What?? We all looked at each other and quickly decided we were taking this one home! His name is now Murray and is as doglike as a cat can be. They go outside together, and both come in when called. He is her shadow and a very lucky cat.
