With a desire to assist individuals in organizing their spaces, places, and stuff, I started my own Professional Organizing business in January 2008. Since then, I’ve helped numerous individuals improve their organizing skills, reduce the clutter in their homes, downsize their belongings, and create functional environments.
Working one-on-one with my clients, sharing my organizing expertise, and providing helpful resources, are some of my favorite aspects of the business. I appreciate the uniqueness of each project, and the challenges it presents. By supporting, guiding, and encouraging my clients, I’m their biggest cheerleader while we work together to create custom tailored organization solutions that fit their needs and lifestyle.
North Attleboro, MA is the home-base of my business, and where I reside with my husband, Tom. However, I’m not a native of MA. I grew up in Vermont as a country girl in a large family. Therefore, I know how to sew, knit, weed a garden, hang clothes on a clothes line, can vegetables, and tap maple trees for syrup. I still enjoy the rustic beauty of VT, and visit when I can. Photography, traveling, making greeting cards, and scrapbooking are a few of my favorite hobbies. In fact, I’ve hand crafted over 80 scrapbook photo albums.
I hold a BA in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of Vermont. After several years in the field as a daycare provider, I wandered from my degree and held a variety of jobs, including assistant librarian, office assistant, aqua aerobics instructor, and retail merchandiser. I feel that my career diversity has only helped prepare me for my business adventure as a Certified Professional Organizer®.
I’m often asked, “Janine, have you always been organized?” Yes, I have. I attribute my organizing skills to my desire to live an orderly life, with streamlined routines, efficient systems, and simplified habits.
