She keeps our hospitals clean
Recently many stories have come to light about people getting infections while in the hospital. Sally Swart, VP of Research Development and Engineering in the Healthcare division at Ecolab, hopes to stop that trend. Her team develops cleaning and disinfection products and services for the health care industry. Her work improves patient care and reduces the number of infections picked up in hospitals.

Sally’s fascination with microbiology in college led her to this career. She’'s thrilled to have a fun job in her field of interest. Sally encourages others to follow their dreams, but cautions women entering this field: be your own advocate in your career, do not settle for less and follow your dreams.
