2018 – Carylene Walker
Carylene’s immersion into the natural products industry started with working in, and then owning, the family business that started in 1950. Her services with SENPA and SOHO started in 1974 when she was elected as Secretary. She served tirelessly as volunteer Secretary and SOHO show director until 1988, when she became the first full-time staff member of the association.
“This association becomes more than a job, it grabs you heart and soul. So many of you have become a part of my extended family and have made the journey and work a real joy. What a great honor to receive this award,” said Carylene.
