Businesswoman. She was known as the "First Avon Lady". In 1886 became the first saleswoman for the California Perfume Company, a business that eventually became the multi-billion dollar Avon Products, Incorporated. She started selling the company's products in 1886 door-to-door, and rose to become the chief of sales for the business.
