MEET THE TEAM
As a former Executive Assistant with over 25 years of experience, being organized just comes naturally to me. I was organizing my family, friends, colleagues and bosses long before I realized I could make a career from it.
Just over 15 years ago now, I decided to take a chance with my experience, skill and ability to organize and started my own organizing business.
In 2011, at a conference in San Diego, I met Cathi Nelson, the Founder of APPO, the Association of Personal Photo Organizers. It was love at first site and photo organizing quickly became my specialty because of my passion for photos that I picked up from my Dad and older brother. I love that you can tell a family history through photographs.
I thought I'd also share a few fun facts about me:
I'm a movie lover, tea-aholic, wife, mom to a grown daughter and a fur baby
I think looking after yourself is one of the most important things you can do for your sanity. I value a nail or hair appointment and a good movie as much as a business deadline.
I don't like to stress or freak out. This quote is one that I totally get: “Stress is not what happens to us. It is our response TO what happens. And the RESPONSE is something we can choose”.
I believe in the importance of enjoying what you do, giving back and having fun along the way.

Everyone who comes to visit comes to see me, not Mom & Dad
I can often be found sleeping on the job while supervising Mom
I love everything to do with beef snacks and treats
I demand Mom’s attention for rubs and snuggles more than a few times a day
Thank you for taking a few minutes to stop by and getting to know me. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me. It is my goal to help you get reconnect with all those wonderful photos and get them into a form you can cherish and share for lifetimes to come.
Organizing our family photos and capturing the stories that go with them has become increasingly more important and meaningful to me over the past many years.
You see, my dad had Alzheimer’s. This disease affected more than just my dad, it affected our whole family. In the last stages of the disease, dad didn't speak at all except the odd word and didn't know me anymore. Sadly, I lost my dad in March of 2015 and I miss him everyday.
It’s nice to look back on photos from a time when he did talk to me and I'm really sad I didn't take enough time to really get to know his story better.
It is too late for me to get his story from him directly, but I'm not to late to help you with your family story.
