Hi, I’m Shelly: Professional Organizer + Coach

I have been organizing businesses, homes, and people since 2011 and I am thrilled that I get to do what I love for a living every day. For me, organizing is a means to an end: being organized gives me the time, room, and clarity to live a life I love.

I have a great sense of humor. I hope you do, too.

Organizing doesn’t have to be scary or depressing. I love laughing my way through a session with my clients. It makes the time pass quickly and makes the work seem fun! That doesn’t mean you won’t have a bad day or a tough session, but I’ll be there to help support you so we can get back to laughing through our sessions. Organizing can be fun. I promise.

Yes, I am a real person! A really real, really non-judgmental person.

My house gets messy too. Sometimes my office looks like someone set off a paper bomb.  I truly believe that sometimes you need a fresh set of eyes on your space when you are too overwhelmed to organize on your own, which is why I occasionally call in reinforcements by hiring an organizing colleague to help dig me out of my own mess. Clients often ask me if they are the worst case I’ve ever seen. Honestly, there is no worst – you are an individual and your situation is unique. I can assure you, though you may look at your space and only see clutter, I’m busy thinking ahead to the many organized possibilities.

I have some credentials, if you’re into that sort of thing.
