My passion is to use my organizing and project management skills to better others’ lives. I provide fresh, client-focused organizing and space-planning solutions to help clear clutter and chaos and bring a fresh perspective of peace and calm to my clients and their living spaces.
Friends have joked with me most of my life about being overly organized. I can organize your pantry, closet, playroom, garage or any room in your home. Most of us lack the time to focus on these areas due to the daily grind, raising children, or simply wanting to spend our time doing other things. I can help!
When my mother made the difficult decision to sell her home and move into an assisted living apartment, helping her decide which treasures to keep or more realistically, which items she would actually have room for in her new apartment was difficult. It was during this time I created a process to help guide her decision making by creating a nurturing environment while efficiently cleaning, sorting, and organizing her home to be put on the market. Most people are unsure where to begin or what our parents truly need with this lifestyle change. I can help!
My experience as a professional organizer, school teacher, wife, mother, and a member of the human race, I’ve experienced the challenges of living a ClutterFree life.
I pride myself on being a good listener, connecting with people, and being flexible. The most important outcome for me is that your project goals are achieved, and that you have the tools to lead a happier organized life.
I hold a BA in Psychology, and a minor in Education from Occidental College.
