As a professional organizer, author, & speaker,
I love to guide people to a clutter-free life!


Background Information

I am a relatively new business owner (I just celebrated my 3rd anniversary!) and my writing career started at that time as well.  I started writing so that I could reach my online clients more effectively. 

 

My writing career began by writing articles for my website and my monthly newsletter, “Choose to Be Clutter-Free!”.  Then, in 2002, I wrote an online course for UniversalClass.com, “Learn to Be Clutter-Free!”.  Since then, I have had over 200 students enroll in the course and the majority found the information provided helpful in their endeavors to become clutter-free and organized.  THAT is a satisfying feeling!

In September 2003 (3 months after I lost my Mom to breast cancer), I was diagnosed with Relapsing-Remitting MS.  I didn’t want that to stop me.  So, in addition to offering the “Learn to Be Clutter-Free!” course, I wrote the, "Learn to Be a Professional Organizer" course.  Since then, I have had almost 40 students in this course and at least 1/2 have pursued the career of a professional organizer! 

In 2004, I joined the National Association of Professional Organizers & the National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization.  Those are additional reasons for me to become more adept at writing.  I want to get into public speaking and write seminars, workshops, and speeches - ones that will grab the attention of the participants.

I spoke at the Professional Staff Senate (about 200 people!) of the University at Buffalo Conference in Grand Island, NY on June 17th.  As the wrap-up speaker, I wrote a 20 minute speech to help people see why it is important to declutter their lives, why it isn’t so frightening, and why it is achievable.

I joined Toastmasters recently, to improve my public speaking skills.  Little did I realize that this is going to also encourage me to write, since I need to write speeches for the meetings.

I know that writing is essential for me to be effective in the way that I want to help people.  Joining Authors Den is just what I needed to spur me on!

Accomplishments

Education Enthusiast Award at Universal Class (I rank No. 63 out of 7,504 instructors as of 08/03/2004.)

As of right now, what I have in the form of achievements & awards is the fact that I have MANY, MANY emails from clients, students, and colleagues who I have had the pleasure of helping.

I have also been interviewed for a column in the “Sales and Marketing Management” magazine as well as by Copley News for a syndicated article about organizing children for school.

Additional Information

I have been published in a couple of local newspapers. In 2002, I was published in a now defunct magazine, “Balance – the Magazine about Getting & Staying Organized”. I have written for other newsletters & web sites as well.

I currently write articles for my website and my monthly newsletter, "Choose to Be Clutter-Free!".

As the new Organization Editor at www.BellaOnline.com, I am required to provide fresh content each month as well as send out a monthly newsletter.

Currently, I am in the process of re-writing my online courses into eBooks. I am also starting to put together a book for people who struggle with organization as a result of a disability, based on my own experience.
