Annie is a mother of two who has always loved everything about organizing. Back when she was in nursing school, she used her organizational skills as a coping mechanism to keep on top of the extensive workload. This was excellent preparation for when she needed to contend with the masses of paperwork in a professional medical setting as a Critical Care Nurse.
In August 2013, Annie founded Life Simplified to help people who were struggling with organizing their home. By applying the very same organizational skills she refined in the medical field, she aims to give people the tools they need to conquer the clutter in their lives. Whether as a nurse or as a professional organizer, Annie finds fulfillment in helping people get back control over their spaces. She likes to think that she can provide the cure for the disorganized home!
Annie's Process Annie's passion and knowledge have turned countless homes and offices into beautiful, functional spaces!
When she first meets with a new client, Annie uses her communication and planning skills, along with her unique client-needs assessment, to develop a Critical Care Plan to conquer clutter. She prides herself on her ability to use the items her clients already possess to create functional, attractive organizational systems, saving them both time and money.
Any unwanted items removed from her clients' homes are properly disposed of or safely recycled. All donations are taken to local charities where they can be claimed by someone in need. Remember, one person's clutter is another person's treasure!
Beyond the Clutter In addition to working with individuals, Annie uses her talents to help community groups get organized. Her most recent project with Mothers’ Home in Darby, PA, successfully transformed a storage room overwrought with donations of clothing, toys, and home goods into a well-organized shopping area. Now, the young women who visit can quickly and easily find the items they need. Annie felt so passionately about her work with this organization that she is now the Volunteer Sharing Space Coordinator for Mothers' Home.
Annie’s passion for organizing has also led her to begin educating others on the importance of removing clutter from their lives. She has given presentations on expert organizing tips and tricks to a variety of groups and is currently available for speaking engagements.
With several qualifications under her belt, Annie brings her years of experience to help you bring order and peace to your life.
