As a professional organizer and I help clients repurpose spaces in their home/offices to work more efficiently. I also help clients virtually around the world who need help getting started on projects, staying on task and being accountable for their progress. I am committed to being as sustainable as possible by giving away my client donations for free to my community. 

 

My focus is finding items "natural homes" for items, streamlining spaces so they function properly and ensuring my clients can find all their posessions.

 

My goal is for my clients to "Live their Best Life"!

As a single mom of two kiddos (one with some special needs) its important that I have a flexible schedule so I can be there when they need me.

 

Its extremely important that I am discreet and maintain confidentiality during my sessions. Organizing can be a very intimate endeavor, but it can also be fun. I try to find humor as much as possible to make the tasks more enjoyable.

My Journey

I grew up in a suburb of Chicago and I have a large family and we spent a lot of time at home. My father was an architect and my mother was a perfectionist. I like to joke with people and tell them I grew up in a museum. Everything had a place. Hmmmm--I wonder why I am a professional organizer?

After spending two years at University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!) I decided to finish my schooling at art Institute of Chicago and studied Typography, Graphic Design and Photography. I spent 30 years in the field of graphic design. I got married in Evanston, had two amazing kiddos and raised my them in Ravenswood Manor. We had a beautiful home and I loved the neighborhood. I had a child with developmental delays and there were lots of therapy appointments, doctor appointments and school meetings. I think I thought I was Wonder Woman. I decided to move to Skokie to get into schools that would provide better services for my son. I really was glad I made the move to Skokie. My life became infinitely simpler.

 

I needed more flexibility in my lifestyle so I tried doing professional organization and fell in love with it! I wish I had done it 20 years earlier. It fulfilled my need to help people by transforming their lives for the better. My business became more popular and I was able to gain more clients and slowly wean away from the graphic design world. It took me several years to feel like I could finally do this full-time.

 

I wanted to find a way to give back to my community so I started doing "FREE GARAGE SALES" and giving my client donations for FREE to people in my community. I built relationships with various social service agencies and I am also 100% committed to being as sustainable as possible. I try to repurpose my client giveaways as much as possible to those who need it. My clients love this because their items get new life in another home. I love it because I get to help my community, the planet while making a living. The receivers love it because they get free items they need. Its a Win Win for everyone!

I am so passionate about organization because it fulfills so many items on my life goals list. Help my community, giving to others who are less fortunate, helping women being empowered and attacking mental health at its core.
