“Our Philosophy”


Many people struggle to balance their busy schedules, children, and households and find it difficult to get back on track.  They find themselves overwhelmed with not enough time in a day to get things done and feel that their situation is past the point of return.  Our goal is to help with new solutions for creating a working environment that will create more time, more space and more freedom to enjoy life everyday through gaining control of their work and home lives and leaving them with the skills to maintain those standards.  After all who doesn't enjoy a day at the beach!              

“Our Experience and Professional Commitment”

Jennifer's prior work experience includes 12 years as a metallurgical engineer and 6 years in office management positions including jobs in property management, partner in a safety distribution company, purchasing and logistics, and design.  Her 30 years of work experience has helped her to understand the needs for structure and organization and time saving skills that can be implemented in one’s work and home life.  She found herself wanting to continue with her passion for productivity and organization but not knowing how to utilize those skills in a broader spectrum.  In 2007, she began seeking out avenues for continued education, training, and hands on experience and has achieved Board Certification and now has a successful career as a Certified Professional Organizer®.  There are currently only ~360 CPO's in 5 countries.
