Get to Know Me

Before returning to my true love of organizing, I led corporate sustainability and later investor relations for a mission-driven technology company in the waste and recycling sector, Rubicon Technologies Inc. As Rubicon’s third employee, I led its various thought leadership initiatives including becoming one of the first and later one of the largest Certified B Corporations, companies using business as a force for good. I am also the co-author of the RUBICONMethod™, a six-step guide to successful recycling and waste reduction. 

But… when you take it upon yourself to stay late and clean out the office storage closet, one might guess that your true passion is actually organizing. In 2023, it was time to Be Brave and finally launch my own business.

My background in sustainability has been key to my work as a professional organizer because I take pride in offering thoughtful and resourceful solutions for any items which leave your doorstep. 

As a mom of two young daughters, I’m no stranger to the ungodly amount of stuff that can come along with parenting. I love helping other parents tame the chaos and implement sustainable solutions to keep them sane and help their children play more deeply and imaginatively. My children are an absolute joy and it’s nice to have spaces in my home that make it more of a joy to play and take care of them.

I’m so lucky to have a loving and very fun husband who supports my passion and appreciates an organized home. Jaime and I enjoy doing home and garden projects together, scouring estate sales, and hosting our friends and family. Jaime is a master at Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, eBay, and even storage auctions. Keeping up with his shopping habits can be a bit of a challenge, but he is good-natured about my imposed organizing solutions and purges.

I also gleaned a flair for thoughtful home design and organization from my mother, Napier. She was a talented and tenacious interior designer in my hometown of Bakersfield, California. Sadly, my mother was diagnosed with Frontal Temporal Dementia (FTD) in 2019. It has been a heartbreaking struggle for my family to deal with the loss of everything we once took for granted about my mom. As the disease progressed my mom developed hoarding tendencies. Later, her condition necessitated a move into a memory care home. Not only did I see my dad lose his best friend, but he also had to transition into living alone in home that was drowning in stuff – sentimental objects, belongings that could not longer be used by my mom, and things that she had hoarded. Over the past few years, I have been helping my dad create a sense of calm by thoughtfully letting go of the abundance of items in our home. This experience has helped me realize that our material possessions are both a gift and a burden. I believe that my personal experience makes me a more compassionate organizer. It would be my privilege to help you.

I’m happy to offer complimentary consultations virtually or in person for clients in the Washington, D.C. metro area.
