My retirement in November 2019 from a 20+ year career in technology sales, most notably for 14 years at Microsoft, was well timed. I developed what would end up as "career 2.0" during the pandemic. I found a huge need to help family and friends get organized and create new systems to regain control of their home. Parents and kids remote working and learning under one roof created chaos.
Professional organizing unleashed a passion I never knew I had. I always enjoyed working, but this level of satisfaction was nothing I experienced before. I leveraged my strengths in project management and aptitude for organizing and logistics to attract a fan base that quickly evolved into a thriving business.
Over the last year in business I realized how fulfilling it is to help clients look and feel like they are ready to conquer the world, especially women. Many clients were struggling with a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear, I evolved my business into a niche market of luxury closet organizing and wardrobe transformation. What you wear has an impact on how you feel when you walk out the door. I realized I found my calling.

Vision Board Workshop
I specialize in Personal Style Vision Boards because they create the roadmap for editing and organizing a closet. As we grow and evolve, our tastes and preferences also change. It's natural to want our outward appearance to reflect who we are on the inside. Changing your personal style can be a way to show the world the new, improved version of yourself. Whether your style goals are to reflect personal growth, professional growth, or life changes, it doesn't need to be drastic or expensive. This workshop will develop your unique style so you can purge your overstuffed closet of old, dated items that do not fit or flatter, reinvent items you already own and figure out what key items your wardrobe needs that will elevate your style. The result? No more wasting money or time guessing what clothes will fit and flatter when you shop or losing favorite items in the crush of items you never wear. Any audience -- friends or colleagues, small or large -- can benefit from a Personal Style Vision Board. The workshop can be done online or in-person. Vision Board Workshops are $250 per group and include a discount if participants what to purchase our online course: www.YouHaveArrived.net.
