What are the biggest highlights of your career?
I worked in the mental health field for over 20 years. It was an amazing experience to work with people on their journeys of recovery and to learn how to truly listen to clients and be patient. I brought these skills to my current career as an professional organizer.
Opening my own organizing business has been a dream come true. I love to help people make their living spaces make sense to them and lower their stress at the same time.
What inspired you to pursue a career in professional organizing?
I have always liked making spaces organized. I love helping people and saw this as a way to do so in a fun and unique way.I would always support friends and family with their organizing needs since it comes naturally to me. I believe in making a space both functional and pleasing to the eye. Once a project is finished, I love seeing my client's reactions during the reveal. Watching their shoulders literally decompress is my favorite thing to see.
