About Me 
 
Although originally from the Midwest, I have lived everywhere from Indiana to the Bahamas, Texas, Pennsylvania, California, New York, Michigan, France, England and Italy. I received a BA from Sarah Lawrence College in New York. I have lived in Portland, Oregon since 2004.
 
I love order and have always had a knack for organizing!  I've used my finely tuned organizing skills in other professions for nearly 20 years, and have been a Professional Organizer since 2002. I have helped hundreds of families and individuals tackle clutter in their homes and bring order back into their lives. I truly enjoy being a part of this transformative work.
