Q. Who are your typical clients?

A. Professional Organizers use tested principles and expertise to enhance their client's lives. By assessing problem areas, teaching and implementing organizing skills, and designing customized systems for success, they help individuals and businesses take control of their surroundings, their time, and ultimately they lives. All information seen, heard, or discussed with the client will be held in the strictest confidence.
Q. Do you have any training or experience in organizing?
A. I’m a proud member of (ACSP) Association Of Closet and Storage Professionals. I have over 20 years of retail management experience as a visual and store manager. Working as project manager in high volume store openings for some of the top retailers using space optimizations as a planning tool to successfully place thousands of garments and accessories. Managing a staff of over sixty employees with high visuals expectation and strict timelines in each location. This gives me the organizational skills and experience to strategically plan a functional space and ensure the success of any project.
Q. Can you design closets for new homes being built?
A. Absolutely , I help design your space with the cabinet installers.
I also partner with other Installer like California Closets and other cabinet companies because I trust their installers.
First we organize & sort your entire closet for a correct inventory count then we prepare a list so the space is properly designed to fit all your clothes and accessories. The day before your installation we will come and empty the space.
Once the installation is completed we will return and organize all your clothes & accessories into you're new closet.
FYI Cabinet Companies will install all the cabinets but will not empty your closet or organize your clothes so proper planning is really important before designing any space for efficiency.
Q. I get easily overwhelmed when I walk in my closet, does that mean I need a professional organizer?
A. Its overwhelming and fascinating how many different style types exist today giving you the option to become someone totally different everyday.
Did you know there's Over 42 styles of shoes for women alone, now imagine all theses choices in one small space.
So it's important to focus on your individual fashion personality because each of our closets tell a different story of the doll that owns it. As a productively professional I focus my craft on my area of expertise. Organizing current modern trends with your timeless classics and vintage pieces.
Q.When can we get started?

We will also complete a new client questionnaire to prioritize and create a action plan to maximize your space and get started right away.
