Galvin began her career in the cosmetics and fragrance industry at Helena Rubinstein in 1975. What she learned on the job at Helena Rubinstein soon became a lifelong vocation. When asked for her perspective on the industry, she replied, “There has never been a time when I have not found the advances in our industry to be exciting. The constant development of new materials and technologies continues to make what we do increasingly appealing and relevant to consumers and more of a contribution to their well-being.”
Along with her professional career, Galvin devotes considerable energy for the good causes of ADVA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse), the American Cancer Society and the Susan G. Komen foundation.
