Amy Tokos, CPO® is a Speaker, Writer, Podcaster, Certified Professional Organizer, Productivity Consultant and Efficiency Expert.
She is the President of National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO), founder of Freshly Organized in Omaha, NE and Co-Host of the Your Real, Your Ideal podcast.
Amy’s background is in engineering and she previously worked making manufacturing processes simpler and more efficient, also known as lean manufacturing. The “lean” thinking just naturally carried over into her life. In 2008, she founded Freshly Organized and began bringing her efficiency expertise and lean thinking to the homes and offices of her clients.
Founder of Freshly Organized
Freshly Organized has grown since 2008 and now includes a team of organizers. While Amy is mostly working with productivity clients, her team is focused on helping Omaha get organized in their homes and offices. When Amy’s not working with clients, she spends her time running the business, working with the media, doing speaking engagements and being available for her young adult children.
“REAL organizing for real life” and “REAL Productivity for real people” are the themes around almost everything Amy and her team does. You can see the REAL acronym broken down at the bottom of this page. There is a book on the way!
