Professionally, Ann has been helping people control the “CHAOS” (Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome) in their homes since early 2011. As a teen, she would organize her babysitting client’s cabinets to help her stay awake after the kids had been put to bed!
Ann works one on one with each client to clear out duplicate, unneeded, unwanted items.

The Board of Certification for Professional Organizers® (BCPO®)
Ann is a Board Certified Professional Organizer®. BCPO® Certification is a voluntary, industry-led effort that benefits the members of the organizing profession, as well as the public. It recognizes those professionals who have met specific minimum standards, and prove through examination and client interaction that they possess the body of knowledge and experience required for certification. This program recognizes and raises industry standards, practices, and ethics. For the public, while the CPO® designation is not an endorsement or recommendation, certification of professional organizers maximizes the value received from the products and services provided by a CPO®.
