Tina Williams, @newoldmom About a decade ago, Tina and her family lost everything to pesticide poisoning – their home, their health, their quality of life. She went on to work as a Parent Advocate training safety committees and facilities managers on green cleaning in New York and because of her family’s continuing health issues, Tina must stay on top of current issues and standards. At the time of her initial devastation due to pesticide poisoning, Tina was on Good Morning America, CNN, and PBS to just name a few. Friday night she will tweet with us!
