Even though there have been challenges in starting a housecleaning business just before the
pandemic, Shellena Pitterson’s hard work is paying off, and she’s being recognized for it.
Pitterson and her business, Orchid Maids, based out of Foundry 66 in Norwich, is one of six
businesses recognized this year by the Women’s Business Development Council as a part of
the 2023 Women Rising Gala and Awards Celebration. The event will take place on Oct. 27 at
the Hyatt Regency in Greenwich.
