I have worked as a Celebrity Personal Assistant for many years. In doing so, I organized and planned nearly every detail of their lives. I've set up and overhauled home offices, organized entire homes, trained household staffs, packed and unpacked for moves.
I organized and cleaned garages, taught basic computer, did research, Feng Shui placement, and much much more! You name it, I've probably done it!
My clients currently range from Oscar winners and World Champions to students and everything in between -- all walks of life, with a variety of incomes. I like all people and I don't judge anyone. We're all on our own path.
I work quickly and aesthetically. I'm fun and funny, and always strive to make the process joyful.
Each organizing assignment is customized for my clients based on their personality, their time management, and their organizational issues. Though I happen upon many of the same issues, we're all unique; our circumstances and tastes are different, so I tailor the project for the individual.
These days a lot of people call themselves Professional Organizers, though in truth they have very little experience. I get calls and e-mails everyday from folks who would like to start their own business in this area, and I support them all. However, just because someone has a knack for organizing, that doesn't mean they are a "Professional."
A true professional in this area will not only have that knack for placement, but a great understanding for the human condition. One must understand many different lifestyles, habits, attitudes, compulsions, as well as aesthetic trends, storage products, the best moving company, the best rates on packing materials, proper document or archive storage, and the list goes on.
As a self proclaimed "student of the human condition," and of my own self-exploration, I offer a more insightful and gentle approach to the process of organizing lives.
Not all of my clients have "issues." For many, the case is simply that their plate is full, and things around their home or office have gotten out of hand. Regardless of the circumstances, I adjust to the personalities of my clients and their situation with ease and minimal effort.
My clients often ask about my home; most assume that I am a neat freak, and I tell them "Yes...and no." I have this dichotomy happening. When I'm at home I can sometimes be a bit of a Messy Marvin, but on the other hand, I can't go to sleep if anything is out of place.
Fortunately for me, it is very easy to put it all back together because I have established a "home" for everything, and this is what I teach my clients. For me it takes ten minutes, or as much as thirty if it's been a crazy day.
My skills as an Organizer and as a freelance Personal Assistant or Concierge are far reaching. "I'm a Jill of many trades." I won't bore you with a tedious list of my accomplishments, but rather offer a general list.
