Professional Organizer– I started my life in organizing as a professional organizer working hands on with people in
their homes and offices. It was so fun to see their progress, get to know their families and make changes that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. Some of the homes were very high end, some were already organized and some were on the worst of the hoarding scale- but each job was special to me. I met so many wonderful people and had so many challenges- it was so fun to come up with the right solution for the person I was working with. (My all time favorite thing to organize? Paper! I love paper- the piles, the files, the shredding – love it all.)
Getting Organized Magazine– After 6 years working hands on with organizing clients, I wanted to be able to reach even more people. I was looking for a good magazine on the topic of organization. Since one didn’t exist, I decided to produce the magazine myself . (um no- I did not have ANY experience doing this! But I love a challenge.) In 2012, Getting Organized magazine was launched as a 40 page printed and digital magazine distributed quarterly. The magazine was a success and very popular to our dedicated readers. As we moved to a more digital age and due to increasing costs, I had to make the decision to stop publishing the magazine in late 2015, and instead turn our website into an organizing blog.
Becoming a Mommy– In January 2015 my foster/adopt daughter was placed in my home at the age of 4. Whoa! Did my life change! I suddenly understood what my previous clients were experiencing! It was like having a mini-tornado in my home each day. It took me almost an entire year to create good organizing systems to accommodate toys, arts/crafts, clothes, books and all of the other items that come with being a parent to a very active young child. But I also experienced joy and love like no other time in my life. My heart is so full and I want to do everything I can to make her happy and healthy. Before becoming a parent, my home was organized all of the time. I as able to keep up with my paperwork and chores and life was pretty smooth. AFTER becoming a parent I am constantly behind -always working to catch up and trying to find ways to sneak in a few extra moments to organize. I can relate to my clients in a whole new way, and yet realize that life is for living – the chores can wait and perfection is overrated.
Blogger– After discontinuing the printed magazine we shifted all of our content online and I am now sharing organizing tips here on our website which is now officially an organizing blog. I am so excited! It is so fun to share my stories, other bloggers’s stories and even those of our readers. I focus on real-life, easy to implement ideas that you can do yourself.
