I was inspired to go out on my own after watching my mother start her own small cleaning company when I was a child. She worked very hard to provide for our family and showed compassionate care for the people she worked with. She wasn't just cleaning houses, she was creating a better environment for the people who lived there and she cared about each and every family whose home she entered. I couldn't have had a better example.
I was fortunate to attend Temple University and double major in Environmental Studies and Geography & Urban Studies. I learned a lot in and out of school. I moved to Philadelphia in 2008 and have absolutely fallen in love with Philadelphia. I made good friends and played collegiate rugby. I followed in my mothers footsteps and started my own cleaning business to help pay for school. That is when I discovered my knack for organization! I would spot disorganization around every corner and began to get opportunities to organize closets, offices, basements, etc. After College I used my degree and managed a few companies in Philadelphia and learned a lot about office management, paper flow and scheduling.
I am so lucky to come from a big loving family who despite some of the headaches provide me with unwavering support and encouragement. Above you can see four generations of hard working Americans, several of which have started their own businesses; restaurants, tattoo parlor, dog walking business and house cleaning. Its in our genes!
My friends are my Philly Family, their the family you choose! I couldn't have taken on this endeavor without them. I also have to mention the amazing men and women I've met through the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and the Philadelphia Hoarding Task Force. They have been so supportive and generous along the way and they get my crazy organizer brain!!!
