How time flies! I can’t believe it was three years ago, in 2016, that I was a L’Oreal Women of Worth honoree. I was thrilled to be back in New York City last week and meet Andi MacDowell again, as documented in the above photograph with my daughter, Amy. As an honoree, I get to go back each year, and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to represent the cleaning industry again at such a prestigious affair. When I was nominated in 2016, it was the first time anyone in the cleaning industry had been chosen as a Women of Worth.

It was a fabulous walk down the red carpet to the cocktail reception followed by a full dinner. This year’s honorees were an inspiring bunch and I was very interested to hear about the project led by the 2019 Women of Worth National Honoree, Brittany Schiavone. She started a nonprofit called Brittany’s Baskets of Hope to bring information, support, and guidance to families welcoming babies with Down syndrome into their lives.

Once again, it was an honor to be able to represent the cleaning industry at this nationwide event celebrating the achievements of women who volunteer time to serve their communities. You can read about my 2016 experience as a Woman of Worth honoree here.
