Saudia Davis '00 was included in a segment about the influx of Americans starting small businesses that aired May 20, 2010, on ABC World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer.

Davis started GreenHouse Eco-Cleaning, an organic residential and commercial cleaning service whose goal is to help its clientele achieve a healthier lifestyle.

An excerpt from the text of the segment:

From Michigan to a non-descript loft in Brooklyn, N.Y., is where you'll find Saudia Davis. Davis spent a decade working in the film industry, promoting movies like "My Big Fat Greek Wedding."
Not in the script was the unexpected word her entire department was being laid off.
"It was that, do I take the safe route or do I really venture out and put myself out there," Davis said.
She did not play it safe. And now she's cleaning up, literally. She runs her own eco-friendly cleaning company called GreenHouse Eco-Cleaning. She's helped 600 families make their homes greener. Her goal: to leave no footprint while firmly standing on her own as one of America's brave, new business owners.
