Katia the Custodian
There are many behind the scenes people I , like many, used to take granted for. In my earlier years, the only time I thought about custodians or other workers who help keep our work and shopping environments pleasant is when there was a problem. I used to take their consistent and hard work for granted. The later years of my career when I spent most of my time inside an office, I made it a point to learn all the custodians names and thank them every day for keeping the work space clean.
This is a custodian I saw at the SF School of Law just starting her shift when I was about to leave the show at around 8:30PM. Kind of a "Rosie the Riveter" poster-esque dedication to her and everyone in her profession.
