Hi, I’m Megan!
As I mentioned on my home page, I am excitedly exploring a new career for me, professional organizing! I spent many years without any idea of what I wanted to be when I “grew up”, and within this past year, I have finally found the direction that feels right for me.
A little backstory:
The first thing you should know about me is that I value open and honest communication above all else. That’s why I hope you won’t be too startled to see me admit without hesitation that I am a person who struggles with mental illness. I have depression and anxiety, along with a few other disorders.
Why do I tell you this?
My disorders caused me to develop hoarding tendencies. I was a sentimental hoarder. In fact, I am a sentimental hoarder in recovery. I have made astounding progress over the last few years, and it feels good!
So you see, it is because of my struggles with mental illness that I have developed such a passion for this career path. Because of my own experiences, I have a deeper understanding of many of the thought processes that a person who has a hard time letting go of things, or one who has a hard time finding order amidst chaos, may go through.
I know how hard it is to put items in a donation box or a recycling bag and to then fight the urge to dig them back out. I also know how easy it is to find a hundred reasons why you could and should keep an item that you’ve held onto for years and never touched.
I know how overwhelming it is to look at piles of clutter, half-finished projects, and just plain ol’ mess. Clutter and disorganization is stressful, infuriating, and exhausting.
And that’s where I come in. You don’t have to do it alone!
