About me

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 lead a busy and full life near Boston with my fiance, his two teenage kids, and our cat, Billie Jean.

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.

Sound familiar??

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 the problem.

This knowledge, combined with empathy, helps me come up with organizing solutions that are perfect for you — based on your  strengths, challenges, needs, and goals.

Not only will these solutions work for you, you'll be able to keep them going after I leave.

Gretchen Rubin

Researcher, author, and speaker on the subjects of habits, human nature, and happiness.

“The most important step is the first step. All those old sayings are really true. Well begun is half done. Don’t get it perfect, get it going. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Nothing is more exhausting than the task that’s never started, and strangely, starting is often far harder than continuing.”
