I’m passionate about helping women live better and be happier, by getting their home, time and lives organized.

As an Organizing Coach and Author I provide valuable and useful tips and strategies to become more productive and efficient. Being a wife, a mom of two and having a full time career, I understand how life can go get out of control– so it’s my mission to help as many women as possible take control of their lives.

As a Professional Organizer I worked hands-on with clients to create efficient ways of using space, clearing physical and mental clutter and giving them more time in their day.

I believe organizing is a way of life, how you think about your day, your goals, your relationships, your stuff and your self. My goal is to motivate positive changes in your home and your life: empowering lives through simplicity and confidence.

She’s just like you… a girl trying to get it and keep it together amongst all things SHE…

Through every stage of my career, I have researched and applied organizing principles to simplify and enhance my life. I have practiced, experimented and applied these principles as a business owner; implementing systems to manage accounts and meet client needs, an artist; creating an efficient yet inspirational studio, a student; setting up a focused and conducive learning environment, a volunteer; from project management to event planning, and mother; discovering ways to balance raising and nurturing a child while exploring and maintaining my interests and career.

I continue to apply these same principals today in a professional capacity to enhance the lives of my clients, as well as their families and business associates. I enjoy passing on the wisdom, knowledge and problem solving skills I have cultivated from my research and life experience. I continue to improve and develop new methods to assist my clients through continuing education, professional development workshops and industry conferences.

We all know that the level of stress, mess and clutter can make our lives unmanageable. There is always so much to do, but not enough hours in the day to complete even the smallest tasks. At Discover Organizing, they embrace this chaos and take the clutter away from your home or office, and in turn, away from your mind

When I walk into a messy home, I don’t see the chaos–I see the possibilities. And I never judge because I know the disorganization isn’t a true reflection of the person standing in front of me. So, like a puzzle that’s calling out to be solved, my mind immediately starts devising a unique system that suits the client. Through both organizing and coaching, I work with my clients to create the peaceful, orderly environment they’ve been longing for.

No mess is too great! I work with a variety of clients, including situationally disorganized to chronically disorganized, and especially love the open, creative and fun nature of my clients with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). In fact, I recently discovered I have a form of ADHD myself.

Denver, CO

My focus is helping busy homekeepers (anyone who maintains a home for their family and/or themselves) set up systems and tools that will enable them to live life more fully by requiring less focus on their stuff.

I especially love working with those who are moving into or out of homes. Though hard to believe, moving can be the time of joy and excitement it should be when there is a plan in place and that plan is carried out. And moving into a new home is the best time to get things set up in a functional way. I am happy to work closely with local realtors in serving the best interests of their clients during the time of transition.

During college and for a few years after, I worked for a USAID contractor. One of my most memorable jobs was archiving over a hundred busted and torn boxes of files that had come in from a closed project in the Philippines. The funny thing is that this wasn’t in my job description- I volunteered to sort, label, and archive them. The hours flew by and I was in the zone. My largest filing project to date was for what became more than 30 drawers of documents for a multi-million dollar project. Those jobs were working with paper. Now I work with people, who just happen to have a lot of paper.

I became a professional organizer immediately after graduating college with a degree in cultural anthropology. If ever forced to return to higher education, I would certainly compile my observations of the messy American office. Back in 2001 there weren’t many people pursuing a career in organizing straight out of college. For me, it was the next natural step. Organizing is the only career I’ve ever known.
