Organized, attractive and functioning homes are my “thing”. My clients often share that it’s not their “thing”, but that’s ok because they’ve got me. I help them downsize and declutter the items that they no longer need and create a living space to help them stay organized. I believe that as your lifestyle changes, your nest needs to change…I call this re-nesting.
My years as a buyer and manager with Jacobson Stores Inc., taught me a lot about organizing and moving merchandise around. I took a sabbatical to raise three children and eventually assisted my mom in downsizing and organizing her stuff after my father died, and again as her health declined. She wanted her favorite things with her when she moved into her new home in a senior living community.
Since it’s start in 2012, I have helped clients downsize, space plan, stage, edit their wardrobe, shop, organize papers and get settled in (unpack). I am an active member in the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO), where I served as Michigan Chapter President from 2016-2019, and am currently Immediate Past President.
I have a B.A.A. in Business Education and Administration from Central Michigan University. I continue to take training through NAPO University, attend NAPO Michigan educational programs and have completed coaching courses, in order to understand my client’s needs and communication styles.
As a 2nd generation antiques dealer and former buyer, I love staying current with home and fashion trends, as well as finding new purposes for old stuff.
My husband and I live in Jackson, Michigan.
