As a Certified Professional Organizer, I have always had a great love of organization and motivating people. I have had this passion since a young age and would often be found sorting and organizing stuffed animals at the local toy store. My best friend’s mom would invite me over when her daughter's room needed "organizational assistance" (also know as cleaning) and I would jump at the opportunity and love doing it. For me there is no bigger satisfaction then helping someone make his or her life easier through organizational systems. My trained focus areas are in Chronic Disorganization and Hoarding.
Some of my personal specialties include:
• Considering your personal lifestyle and fitting it into the space you have to work with
• Maintaining patience and understanding while working with any age; young to old
• Listening to what you really need and want in order to create the best organizational solutions and systems
I became a Certified Professional Organizer CPO® in February 2011 and have furthered my education through classes offered by the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD) to become a Chronic Disorganization Specialist in 2012, Hoarding Specialist in 2013, and ADD Specialist in 2014. I continually educate myself by attending yearly National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) Conferences, ICD Conferences, and taking educational classes through the ICD program.
