The Beginning

Raised by two super-organized parents, I’ve been organized since I was a young child. Being organized made everything throughout my life much easier. My parents also had exquisite taste in home décor, so I learned the art of decorating and space planning. Sadly, my mom and dad passed away before knowing I created a business from what they taught me.

During the 25 years I worked for Fortune 500 and other companies in management, administrative and human resources positions, I saw systemic disorganization and inefficiencies. I knew bottom-line results were being eroded. Due to disorganization, huge corporations were losing hundreds of millions of dollars every year but management didn’t see it. So I took it upon myself to create systems that increased productivity and revenue. It was then that I discovered my true passion—organizing!

Starting A Company

In the late 1990s, a segment on Dateline featured professional organizers, a then-new term. It was a life-changing aha moment — I knew immediately I wanted to be a professional organizer! I had the necessary skill set to teach people what I had been doing all my life.

In 2000, I founded An Organized Approach to help people get, and remain, organized in order to achieve greater success and lead more fulfilling lives, professionally and personally. This was at a time before most people had home computers. Generally speaking, people are not taught organizing skills. Organized people learned it somewhere. I wanted to guide them through the process and change their lives in highly significant ways. I’m proud that I’ve helped many do just that.

Sometimes, the organizer-client relationship becomes a very personal one, depending on what we’re doing. Clients share personal things with me they’ve never even told their spouse or best friend. They knew I’ll honor and protect their confidence. Some even call me their Life Organizer. I love that!

A few years later, I discovered home staging. I realized I could do something similar for home sellers — get them the best result on the sale of their biggest asset. Since adding home staging services, my staging transformations have sold houses quickly for top dollar, generally about two weeks after listing (assuming the house is priced properly by the real estate agent). Some clients even took their houses off the market and decided to stay there because of how well their homes looked after my staging results.

Decluttering and downsizing are usually part of every project because most of us have Too Much Stuff. Whether moving to a smaller home or just wanting fewer things, I help eliminate what has become clutter. These are things that are no longer useful, enjoyable or meaningful, or take up space without serving any real purpose. The upside? You keep their most important things and gain needed space.

I can teach you how to thrive with fewer things, organize your home, office, business and life, and/or stage your home for a profitable sale.

Professional Growth

I’m a Golden Circle member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO) and its Greater Philadelphia Chapter since 2000 and served on the chapter’s board of directors. I taught Office Organizing at Temple University. A paralyzing fear of public speaking led to membership in Blue Bell Toastmasters, serving on its board of directors and learning to be comfortable with public speaking. A love of writing led to articles published locally, nationally and online, and my all-new monthly blog posts (previously called newsletters) since 2004. I was Features Editor of NAPO News, NAPO’s former newsletter. I’ve been a guest on TV, radio and featured in newspapers and online. I enjoy giving fun and interactive workshops and presentations to teach people what I know.
