I have been organizing things my entire life. I went to college to study art and found myself working in sculpture– where every-thing revolves around object placement and how people interact with it. With entrepreneurial parents I was drawn to the business side of art. Eventually, I became the Director of Career Services at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD), where I helped students and alumni develop careers using skills learned in the classroom.
I quickly joined the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals and the Institute of Challenging Disorganization, where I earned a Foundation Certificate in Chronic Disorganization and a Chronic Disorganization Specialist Certificate. In 2014 I passed the Board of Certified Professional Organizers exam, becoming one of less than 400 certified organizers in the United States. In May of 2018 I earned a Specialist Certificate in Life Transitions.
My family usually enjoys my organization tendencies. My son, Elliot, has enlisted my help with organizing baseball and Pokémon cards. My husband, however, made me stop putting labels such as "BRIAN'S HAMMER" on all of his tools. We live happily in Minneapolis with a lazy black lab named Rufus.
