About Me


I started The CleanUp Coach organizing business because I am passionate about functional spaces and enjoy the process of helping people put things that are important to them in order.  I believe that when your "stuff" is organized, you feel better; and other areas of your life begin to fall into place.  


Throughout my 20 years of owning an in-home family childcare business, I have learned a lot about how room organization and proper planning work best to serve a variety of children's personality types, especially in mixed age groups.  I have helped many families incorporate practices into their daily schedules that have resulted in more efficient family routines.  


​My current tenure as Home and School Association President gives me experience in event planning, monitoring and leading meetings, keeping accurate records and file management. In addition, I create and oversee complex team schedules, and develop policies and procedures to maintain efficiency and compliance in the Association.  


Taking that first step can be intimidating.  Using my experience, rescources, tips and tricks, we can develop a system of what organization will look like for you, your family and your space.  Let's work together to meet the needs of you budget and lifestyle, while restoring peace in your home!
