Owner, Shorely Organized
After working as a Patent Illustrator, which required strict attention to detail, and in office administration for a large national financial services company, where I learned efficient practices of managing enormous amounts of paper, I ventured into the organizing field. Since 2004, I have been working with my clients, transforming their spaces into organized, peaceful and functional settings.
Knowing the importance of “transferring skills” so that my clients can maintain the systems we set up together and with vision and enthusiasm about the benefits of organization, I developed a series of organizing classes which I taught in the Continuing Education Departments at Anne Arundel and Carroll Community Colleges. I am also a guest speaker and presenter at a variety of organizations.
As a long-term member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing (NAPO) and a past Board member of the local Baltimore Chapter in various positions, I have kept abreast of the latest organizing trends. I regularly attend the NAPO-Washington DC Chapter's annual conferences and enjoyed my first National Conference, which was held in Baltimore. I have also been a member of The Photo Managers, developing skills to help my clients enjoy and share their photos and memorabilia.
I have appeared on the Fox45 Morning Show, and been published in the Baltimore Home Improvement Magazine, Chesapeake Family Magazine and The Baltimore Sun.
Originally from South Africa, I lived in Baltimore for over 30 years where I raised my children and built a successful organizing business (formerly Organized2Succeed). In the past several years I worked through my own “Right Sizing” and now enjoy living on Tilghman Island, along with my husband Stewart and adorable dog Bailey. My hobbies include kayaking, chalk painting furniture, and mosaics. I am thrilled to now operate my business on the beautiful Eastern Shore of Maryland, and to support to the local community.
