Becoming an organizer was a natural choice!
After graduating from the George Washington University with a B.A. in French and Spanish Language and Literature, I worked for the United Nations and the World Bank in Washington, D.C. in administrative capacities. I left the workforce to settle my parents’ estate. Once the estate was settled, I stayed home to raise my two young children. At that time I began working as a substitute teacher for Montgomery County Public Schools in MD. I was in heaven! I could work while my children were in school and be with them when school was out.
But, all good things must come to an end. In May 2011 my son was graduating from college and my daughter would be leaving for college three months later. I was facing an empty nest. I knew I had to find a new direction, but what would it be?
Throughout my life I have used my organizing skills at home and at work. At the World Bank, a colleague and I were the first in the organization to job-share. I set up systems and routines that both of us would follow to ensure that nothing fell through the cracks when we switched shifts. During long-term teaching assignments I would use routines, checklists and other tactics to monitor the students’ work in class. At home my organizing skills were responsible for keeping my family and home running smoothly. It didn’t take me long to figure out that I wanted to be a professional organizer. Thus, my third child, Your Life Simplified, LLC, was born!
Like you, I have suffered personal setbacks, which have knocked me off my feet. That’s why I am here to help you get back on your feet and move forward. Let my organizing skills help you reclaim your life by reducing your clutter and restoring order in your life.
