is to encourage delight, well-being, and better relationships through the organization of spaces and information.
"Know what you have, and where you have it!"
That is my motto. I love to tackle clutter and create logical structure, and revel in helping busy Chicagoans discover the benefits of being organized. I bring to each project a Scandinavian sense of efficiency and order honed during the 22 years I spent living in Stockholm, Sweden.
Growing up I always liked to organize things: my stuffed animals, my desk, my family laundry room… you get the idea. In college, I was the one who had all my binders lined up neatly, and during my years working in accounting and office administration, I was the co-worker who stocked and labeled the supply cabinets, even though it wasn’t in my job description. Now, as a busy mother of three, my organizing skills help my family and me better enjoy life.
My specialties include organizing Gmail and paper and leading downsizing efforts like Swedish death cleaning, and I love all kinds of residential projects. My goal is to help my clients achieve the visions they have for their homes, offices, and digital lives.
What is a
Certified Professional Organizer®

My CPO® status ensures that I possess the judgment, skills, and knowledge required to provide the highest level of client care. In hiring a CPO®, you can be assured that you are hiring a professional organizer dedicated to best practices and continuing education (required to maintain CPO® status) and who has attained the highest level of certification.
