"You are such a breath of fresh air--thanks for helping me get unstuck."
J. C. - Denton, TX
Often called slave-driver, life-saver, and everything in between, Melinda is like a therapist for your clutter. Her sensible organizing philosophies and vivacious attitude make getting organized suck less.
She’s on a mission to prove that
being organized has nothing to do with bins and labels. And
it definitely isn't about perfection.
Organization is about addressing what is
standing in your way so you can let go of the excess clutter and create the
home that supports your dreams and goals.
Her education in advertising and marketing means she can guide you past the common traps in today's mass consumerism "stuff" culture (those tricks that end you up with unwanted, impulse purchases and excess clutter) while her former careers in professional ballroom dance and event planning means she still likes to make everything sparkle.
works with mildly cluttered to mildly hoarded people across the country. She's also teamed up with extreme-cleaning/crime-scene cleanup crews to properly and safely clear out massive clutter situations. She was
named “Best Personal Organizer” by Fort
Worth, TX Magazine and “Most Glamorous” in StartupNation’s Home-Based 100.
Her tips have been featured in Good Housekeeping, Elle Decor, House Beautiful, Shape, Woman’s Day, and many
other local and national publications. She is currently a featured contributor
to She Owns It.
When not clearing clutter, Melinda enjoys performing as a
supernumerary with the Fort Worth Opera (R: backstage with DAUGHTER OF THE REGIMENT. Photo credit: Tracy Nachelle Photography), yoga, cooking and eating indulgent food and cursing (words not evil hexes).
And she especially loves champagne.
She believes it was meant to
celebrate any and all occasions.
Like a Tuesday.
