I have worked as a consultant, project manager and Professional Organizer for over 20 years. First and foremost, I create order out of chaos. I work with clients in their homes or businesses. I will sort through the piles (or boxes) of paper, reduce volume, and create practical filing and storage solutions. De-clutter room by room or a whole home. From closets, drawers, kitchens, garages and more, I will reorganize the space for better flow, aesthetics, and efficiency. I manage finances and bill paying for some clients.
My background in Project Management uniquely qualifies me to excel in several areas. As a Renovation Manager I work with clients wanting to, say, add an extra bathroom or finally build that den and deck, but who have no time, inclination, or idea of where to start. I will bring in the architect and pull the permits, hire the G.C. and the subs, run the job, pay the bills. The owner is as involved as s/he wants to be.
As a Project Manager I consult on projects of all sizes. A client had an apt. in the city and needed custom radiator covers built, special tinting on the windows to protect valuable artwork, and getting antique chairs repaired and re-upholstered. Another client had a huge presentation coming up and needed researching and collating of all the the media elements; logistics managed throughout several offices, DVD's made, artwork produced, and then custom packaged for a media launch. I handled all the logistics of a performer and staff's international touring schedule.
As a Moving Manager I help clients prepare to downsize or move. I will handle all the details; from sorting, donating, and yard sales, to soliciting moving bids, packing and arranging for special services (i.e. special crating, car services), to meeting the movers on the other end and assisting with getting the house unpacked and set up at the other end.
As a Property Manager, I take care of 2nd and vacation homes; handle repairs and maintenance. Will find and manage tenants if needed (I'm also a NYS Licensed Realtor).
Helping clients figure out what they want to do or accomplish sometimes requires a bit of "teasing out" of information. I wear many hats; Therapist, Shopper, Contractor, Organizer, Producer, Administrator, Stager, and 2nd Banana. I like to say that I'm an Exceptional Duck Wrangler. More than anything, I'll help you get all your ducks in a row.
