I build REAL solutions to help people to maximize their organization and productivity plus help companies create productive work environments. As a Certified Professional Organizer and Productivity Consultant, I assess your current state, identify goals, strategize the plan, identify solutions, create processes, and help sharpen time management techniques that will create efficiency and increase productivity.

Today’s families are busy and today’s companies face a daunting challenge of reintegrating team members and processes in a fast moving business world. I help individuals, families, teams, and companies integrate skills and best practices to operate at peak levels. I have over 30 years of experience streamlining. My background includes experience in engineering, lean manufacturing, household management (mother of 4) and small business management. In 2008, when I founded my own company, Freshly Organized in Omaha, Nebraska, I wanted to have a business that supported work/life balance for me and enabled me to share my expertise in simplifying/streamlining with other families, businesses and professionals. You can visit Freshly Organized for a full menu of services.

Currently, I am the President of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO). My organizing and productivity insights have been featured in local and national media including NBC Today, Good Housekeeping, Momaha Magazine, CNN, The New York Times, Washington Post, This Old House Magazine, Omaha World Herald, and much more.
