"You are such a breath of fresh air--thanks for helping me get unstuck."
J. C. - Denton, TX
My clients have called me slave-driver, life-saver, devil woman, marriage-saver and everything in between. No matter how many nasty things they lob at me while we're working together (bring it on, I can take it), in the end there's always a huge hug and an even bigger smile because we got that DONE.
I'm Melinda Massie, and I'll help you work through your emotional attachments to clutter so you can clear it out and get on with an organized life.
My unique background is a combustible mix that makes getting organized so much more enjoyable for you.
- Part 1: Degree in Advertising and Public Relations. This means I know all the tricks and insider secrets that are being used against you to make you buy more "stuff." I'll help you navigate past it so that you can be more mindful in your spending and only buy what you need/use/love. Does the industry appreciate that I'm using their information against them? Probably not. Do I care? Nope.
- Part 2: Prior careers in the performance arts and event management. Once upon a time I was a musician, actor, singer, and professional ballroom dancer. I also spent well over a decade in events management planning everything from intimate gatherings in the home to grand galas for thousands of people. In other words, I've turned organization into something sparkly and fun that will rub off on you if you want it to. It's also the most truly entertaining organizing process that you'll ever experience. If you think getting organized sucks, let me show you that it doesn't have to.
I work with the mildly cluttered to mildly hoarded people across the country. I've even worked with extreme-cleaning/crime-scene cleanup crews (Hazmat suits and all) to properly and safely clear out massive clutter situations. I've been named “Best Personal Organizer” by Fort
Worth, TX Magazine and “Most Glamorous” in StartupNation’s Home-Based 100. My tips have have been featured in Good Housekeeping, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Shape, Woman’s Day, D Home, and many
other local and national publications.
That last part is all glossy and fun, but the only thing you need to remember is that I've turned the de-cluttering and organizing process into a well-crafted art form that has been successful for hundreds of people. I've created LONG-lasting results time and time again. No matter what your starting point is, I can help you get to your goals. Once we're finished, you'll never have to hire someone again.
Unless you want to of course...but never because you have to or because you've landed in the same situation that got you to call me in the first place.
When not clearing clutter, I get a creative infusion by performing as a supernumerary with the Fort Worth Opera. (R: backstage during DAUGHTER OF THE REGIMENT 2013) I also j'adore yoga, cooking and eating indulgent foods, and cursing (the words not evil hexes).
I especially love champagne. It should be used for any and all occasions.
Like a Tuesday.
