In nearly 20 years of sport & entertainment marketing, I have built brand equity, activated global sponsorships, supported charitable relationships, developed advertising campaigns, managed staff on three continents, launched the Asia-Pacific corporate office of a global governing body and started my own business. How did I accomplish all of this? Organization and efficiency have been my greatest strengths.
I have been able to turn those strengths into assets for doing something I love, home organization. They also serve me well as a wife and the mother of two young boys.
In addition to my own organization experience, I am also a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers, have a certificate in Interior Design and Home Styling and am a member of the Business Council of Shorecrest Prep.
