    We hired Michelle to come into our home and she was amazing, even my 6 mos old was thrilled. Not only will she do the organizing for you, but she'll give you tips and ideas to do some of the simple tasks on your own. If you have children or if a member of your family have a behavior disorder, where it's important to have organization, like ADHD - she's the one you need! Overall, we loved her, we plan to have her back soon.

    Michele is a MIRACLE WORKER. I was drowning in clutter and it had been stressing me out for a while. Now - after two sessions with her - I have a whole new house! She is full of great ideas - like cheap plastic tubs from the Dollar Tree (who knew?!) - and is a pro at rearranging furniture and improving the overall flow of a home. Her work style is super efficient, but never bossy or pushy or "judgy." She actually made it fun, and customized the whole setup for our specific situation. (My daughter loves science, and now she has a whole science area!) She is also practical, and is super knowledgeable about what will and will not work going forward -- so that we can stay this organized. Michele is a GREAT organizer - and an even better person. Highly, highly recommend this investment in yourself and your sanity by hiring her. Like now. Right now.

    About this pro

    There are a lot of great organizers out there. Many of us are passionate about what we do and we do it with excellence. This means, people have choices! So what will you get if you decide to choose me? Someone who is passionate about what they do and that I will do it with excellence! My goal is not to come in with a bunch of great ideas, but to come in with a bunch of great ideas that are realistic and tailor made to work for you and your lifestyle. When I leave your home or office, I want you to feel confident in all of the work that we did and that you feel that value has been added to your life because of it. The people! I am always amazed when I work alongside of clients as they put forth effort to take control back of the spaces they live, work, and play in. Watching and assisting as they reclaim a manageable lifestyle, by removing the barriers that have been holding them back or keeping them weighed down, not only encourages me, it re-enforces my love for this profession.

      Q & A

      • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
        My fee is $65 per hour with a 4 hour work day minimum. Most projects can be done in this amount of time. For larger projects I have 5-15% discount packages available. On occasion, I offer reduced rate specials. (Reduces rate specials may not be used in conjunction with discount packages.) I also offer new customer and referral incentives. Ask me for details.
      • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
        Typically, it all begins with a 1 hour consultation at the client’s house. Sometimes this consultation is done over the phone and the client sends me pictures via email or text. The consultation helps me to get a good feel for what a client is looking for, what is already working for them, and what they would like to see changed. Once a decision is made to move forward, the client signs an agreement for the estimated hours and a work day is scheduled. That’s when I go to work planning. Some clients like to be involved in this process more than others and some don’t. Clients at this point, let me know if they have a budget for organizing materials or not and if they need me to shop for them or not. I then show up at the appointed time, discuss what we will be doing, and then we get started. Payment is due at the end of each work session/day and then I graciously ask for a review.
      • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
        Some of the biggest contributions to my training as an organizer, was the hands on training and experience I received, from being a mother, a business owner, and a college instructor. Having real life opportunities for application, have proven helpful when I embarked on an organizing career. This training provided insight into family dynamics, environments and how they affect us, strategies for reducing stress, and much, much more. I have also taken courses for organizing to enhance the knowledge base that I already have. I am a member of the Preferred Organizer community where I both mentor and receive mentoring. I am a lifelong learner and believe whole-heartedly that we never stop learning, and that it is important for me to stay active in and accountable to the professional organizing community to continue to offer quality service and care to who seek out my services.
