About Us

Lisa Dooley organizerOften asked why she got into organizing, Lisa's answer is always the same - "it's about making your life easier.  When my life was especially chaotic and stressful - young children, the demands of growing a business, ill or dying family members, I found that being organized just helped me stay on a more even keel and get through those really tough times.  Organization isn't the end goal - happy is the end goal. Being organized goes a long way in making your life easier so that you can focus on the really important things."
