Residential and classroom organizing services throughout the mid-peninsula areas of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.
My family and friends can tell you I have been organizing my entire life. Growing up, my brother described me as someone who likes to organize just about anything. From arranging my Barbie's outfits in order by color and sleeve length, to creating a Saturday morning cartoon viewing schedule, to color-coding all of my academic folders by subject in high school, I was always thinking about how to make things neat and efficient. Having a place for everything and everything in its place makes me feel peaceful and happy!
My organizing skills came into play every day as a 4th and 5th grade teacher in San Clemente and Palo Alto, California, where I taught for 21 years. I enjoyed organizing centers and spaces around the room for students' things as well as my own, but what I truly loved was teaching kids the value of organization and helping them to create organizing systems that fit their personalities.
Happily, I have been able to transfer many of my skills from teaching into professional organizing: I can optimize space and time to create organizing solutions based on how you live and work; I ask questions and make keen observations to determine what organizing approach will work best for you; and I celebrate your success based on the real accomplishments we make during our sessions together.
