Hi! I'm Lisa. I'm a former corporate marketer who found that helping people discover the joy of being organized is far more gratifying work!
I'm on a mission to help individuals and business owners get control over their "stuff" so they can be more productive and feel at peace in their homes and workplaces.
I lead a busy and full life near Boston with my husband, his two teenage kids, and our cats, Billie Jean and Renji.
I know what it’s like to have...
- a demanding job
- a chaotic schedule
- out-of-town family
- different opinions
- competing priorities
- outside influences
- a limited budget
- a lack of closet space
- not enough time
- not enough energy
- and too much stuff.

Why choose me?
I love people! And I love to make their lives easier. So I've spent more than 20 years building a skillset around human-centered design.
Design is all about solving problems. To create the perfect solution, I need to understand the who, what, why, when, where, and how of your problem.
The answers to these questions, combined with empathy, helps me come up with organizing solutions that are perfect for you — based on your strengths, challenges, needs, and goals.
Because these solutions are custom tailored, it will be easier for you to keep them going after I'm gone.
