I frequently tell people that my organizing and design business is my second career, but there’s more to the story than that. I was always captivated by anything related to organizing, space planning and design. I even took some college colleges in interior design while working full-time without knowing exactly how I would use that knowledge in the future.
I now have my own company, Your Space Made to Order LLC, which is based in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area. I love helping clients create living and work spaces that allow them to feel more productive and inspired.
While I work on organizing jobs of all sizes, I am known for my ability to manage complex projects with many moving parts.
I have two particular areas of expertise. The first is working with homeowners who are moving and/or downsizing. Services rendered include helping them prepare for a move (downsizing, updating and staging the residence) and then settle into their new home. The second is small space living, offering space planning, creative organizing solutions and recommendations for multi-use, multipurpose furniture.
Many skills acquired over the years serve me well in this career. These include asking the right questions, listening carefully, identifying clients’ priorities and/or greatest sources of distress and then breaking the job to be done into manageable chunks.
That’s my story. What’s yours, and what are your goals? How can I help you create a new narrative?
