I am a professional organizer, mother, and wife. Even as a small child, I always had an intense passion for decluttered space, logical furniture layouts and helping friends and family thrive in a well-organized environment. Redesigning my godmother’s home was one of my favorite things to do at the age of 11.
After graduating high school, I immediately joined the corporate world with my first job at a bank. Starting as a teller, I worked my way up to the file room where I sorted, categorized, labeled and decluttered thousands of customer documents. My nook was nestled among the manila folders and I loved every minute of it.
Two years later, I was hired as a Supervising CSR II for Alfa Insurance. To no surprise, I organized the file system in this office within the first year of employment. The break room was neat and tidy, the office was in tip top shape and within three years, with the help of my amazing team, the office ranked 2nd place in the district, coming from 15th. This goes to show the overall functionality and efficiency of an organized space.
After four years in the insurance field, I decided to pursue something I loved; music and art. I organized a few events at a local art gallery downtown before heading back into the corporate world.
Back to the office and it resided at the Birmingham News writing the obituaries for the local paper. Within two years, I reorganized the department, eliminating the need for a second employee, redesigned the submission website and created their training handbook.
I am owner/operator at Organize with Lia out of Birmingham, AL where I live with my husband, young daughter, cat and dog.
