To be completely transparent, if you knew me growing up, I was an absolute slob. In college, I was embarrassingly messy to the point where you couldn’t even see my floor. It wasn’t until I learned about an organization system called 5S at my industrial engineering job that I started to turn a new leaf. I had always enjoyed what my place was like when it was clean. However, I still lived with a lot of clutter and the cleanliness was only temporary.
Then I moved in with my husband. He had been disciplined with cleanliness since growing up in a military family and was in the military himself, so you can imagine where that left me. I had to change my “organized chaos” into militarized organization, which honestly was for the better.
Since I worked in a manufacturing facility and was teaching these organization concepts in the workplace, I might as well have applied it to my home. I had worked as an engineer in the defense industry for about 6 years then found my role as a Lean Consultant, where I finally discovered what I truly enjoy and am pretty good at. That’s creating functional processes and systems for organization.
My mission is to help people achieve their goals with a clear headspace, starting with their home. I believe that tidying is a healing process that will help you discover what you want to keep, and as a result, it can help you make decisions in other aspects of your life. And as a recovering slob, I can truly admit that it is more pleasant to have an clean and organized home, than it is to have a messy one.
