Before becoming a professional organizer in New York City, growing up I thought it was my destiny to become a Broadway actress.
And it was, kind of.
After college, I scored an amazing gig as a munchkin in the Broadway musical WICKED. I lived in Chicago and Los Angeles before landing in a 75 square foot room in San Francisco. Complete with a murphy bed, the space was the ultimate crash course in learning to live minimally.
Luckily, I’d always been organized (a gene my mother jokes I definitely did not inherit from her!) and found systemizing chaos into calm to be incredibly cathartic.
After my showmance with a backstage gem I now happily call my hubby led us back home to New York, I worked as a nanny between acting jobs.
Interestingly enough, I found all of the families I worked with had one thing in common: They were all overwhelmed by stuff.
The temptation to help was magnetic, and instinctively I found myself organizing their homes and, room by room, empowering them to reclaim their time and sanity.
