I'm Diane LeWand, a professional organizer. I am a member of NAPO and NAPO-NE. I will help you clear your clutter and develop solutions to create organization and maximize your space. As we work together you will learn the skills to "Make More Room In Your Life!"
I have spent most of my life living in small spaces. We all know how our lives require so much stuff. I learned early on to keep my things neat and orderly. It gave me great satisfaction to never have lost so much as a shoe from my Barbie doll when I was growing up! Of course, things were not always perfect. But I always enjoyed restoring order.
As I grew up my interest in fashion grew along with me. I learned how to organize my closet from my mom. She was very fashionable and organized. She taught me how I could create many looks from a few key clothing items. I credit her for my closet organizing skills.
After college, I went into the professional world and spent many years in the financial services industry. I had roles as a business analyst, computer programmer and project manager. This work required serious attention to detail and an organized approach. I spent a lot of time exercising the left side of my brain. I did manage to take sabbaticals during that time to feed my right brain, too! I studied landscape design and worked for a period as a gardener. It may not look it to the naked eye, but there are rules and order when designing a beautiful garden. During another period, I had a business as a personal shopper and stylist. This work always started with a detailed review and organization of the clients' closets to reveal how many options already existed.
Today, as a professional organizer, I get to exercise both sides of my brain. I am dedicated to working with clients, sharing my experience, knowledge and skills to help them to clear their clutter, maximize their space and Make More Room In Their Lives!
