I have been organizing anything and everything I could get my hands on since I was a young child, and now I’m thrilled to be able to share my knowledge, skills, and passion for helping others through professional organizing. Organizing With Annie will help improve your space, your time, and your quality of life.
Serving the Cape Cod community, I work with women & families who are experiencing major life transitions.
I want to preserve your memories while sharing the benefits of reusing, recycling, donating, or selling excess belongings.
I can help you find the best solutions to make your life easier so you can spend more time with loved ones and caring for yourself.
Before starting my business, Organizing With Annie, I worked in various positions in housing, higher education, and counseling for nonprofits. Most recently I have worked as an advocate and counselor for women, children and families experiencing violence. Combining my skills as a counselor, a supervisor, and an advocate I have launched Organizing With Annie to create collaborative partnerships with my clients to help them find the best versions of their spaces and themselves.
I have built my business, Organizing With Annie, on the belief that everyone and everything deserves a home. Whether you’re in an apartment you rent, or house you own, your living space should be safe, comfortable, and functional. I’m a big believer in self-care and have learned through many different aspects of my career that we all, women especially, tend to care for everyone else first and never have time for ourselves. I want to help make your home more organized so you will spend less time looking for things and have more time to treat yourself.
As a member of the New England chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) I am continually building my skills and increasing my knowledge of the best products and resources to assist my clients in achieving the outcomes they want. After a brief consultation I can take your concerns, challenges, and dreams for your spaces and provide you with systems that will work best for you. It is a privilege and an honor to be invited into someone’s home to be part of making their spaces more comfortable for their family, their business, and their guests.
Annie has organized two office spaces for me on two separate occasions. She is a consummate professional with a true talent for getting things in order. She is able to create harmony from chaos, and has a natural instinct for aesthetics. But what I really like about Annie is that she is patient and practical. She guided me through a lot of clutter in a very gentle and nonjudgmental way. If you care about how your space will look, function, and make you feel, Annie is the person to call.
Moving in general can be quite stressful; moving and downsizing is even more challenging. I went from having a master bedroom to a room barely large enough to fit the essentials of a bed, dresser, and desk. Annie assisted me with sorting my belongings, categorizing them, and then organizing them in a logical manner. Annie gives you options, not advice. I felt comfortable and not pressured to make my own decisions, while having support and encouragement from a professional organizer.
NAPO is the National Association of Professional Organizers. I belong to both the national organization and the New England chapter. NAPO offers, training, education, resources, and networking for professional organizers and consumers.

Yes. As a member of NAPO I am always in compliance with the Code of Ethics which includes complete confidentiality for all clients. I will keep all of your information private and will not sell, release, or share anything about your family, your home, or your organizing habits.
As a professional organizer I want to help make your spaces less cluttered, and your life easier. Your time is precious so I want to help you make the most of it, without compromising the quality of your time. I can help organize any room in your house including: kitchen, living room, bathroom, bedrooms, closets, garage, basement, attic, or home office. If you have another idea send a quick email and if I’m not the expert I can refer you to another organizer who specializes in whatever need you're looking to fulfill.
This is a common question without an easy answer. It depends on the number of rooms and number of projects in each room. My role as the professional organizer is to give direction, teach skills, and provide support, but as the client it is up to you to make the decisions because after all it’s YOUR home we’re organizing. Some people can make decisions relatively quickly, while others take a longer time to process; either way is just fine, but keep that in mind when determining the amount of time you want to work with an organizer. I typically work with clients in 2-4 hour sessions during night and weekend hours.
As the client you will be 100% involved in all discussions, decisions, and actions in all of your spaces. I believe that my clients all have the ability to organize and manage everything, and they hire me to provide structure and support throughout the process. Once a new system is set up I might ask the client to try it out for a few weeks to see if it’s successful, so there’s a little homework in between sessions, but other than that our time together should be completely hands-on. Outside of our sessions I will conduct any research necessary to make sure you have the most efficient and affordable products to help keep you organized long term.
NO, please don’t go out and purchase any organizing supplies before our first session. While shopping for products sounds like fun, and believe me when the time is right it can be very fun, I want to work with the supplies you already have in your home and help you keep costs low. If we decide that purchasing some products is the right decision we can talk about your own personal likes and dislikes of current products and I’m always happy to recommend my favorites as well.
Some people think it might be easier to work with a professional organizer if their partner or their children don’t know about it. However, I will not work with a client unless all members of the household are aware of the work. The organizing will be most effective if the entire family participates and does their part, but if you have a partner or children who aren’t thrilled about the process, that’s okay, they can still benefit from the results.
I accept cash, personal checks, as well as debit or credit cards. After the initial free consultation, once we agree on a timeline that works for both of us, I require a 25% deposit at our first session. If a client cancels for any reason, other than an emergency, a 50% cancellation fee will be required. I value my time and your time, and as my client I want you to be fully and completely satisfied with all of our work together.
