1976 Started organizing as an "amateur" at age 4. Got my first label maker from Santa and it was game on! 1994 BA in Education and Spanish. 1994-1998 Taught 5th-9th grade & incorporated time management and other organizing strategies into lessons. 2001-2006 Owned professional organizing company. Used my experience as an educator to teach residential clients how to maintain organization systems we created. Frequently spoke to and coached entrepreneurs about efficiency in their businesses. 2004 Co-founded non-profit free store to give clients a way to donate directly to people in need. 2007-2010 Taught 6th-8th grade. 2013-present Just couldn’t resist the call to get back into the field of organizing.
