My Biography

cynthia braunI have been organizing people’s homes since I was a young girl. My first job, at age 16, was at a lawn service company on Long Island, which hired me to re-organize and update their filing system. I did such a great job in the month I was there, that I was no longer needed.
After receiving my MBA graduate degree from Adelphi University, I attended the Metropolitan School of Interior Design. I now combine my experience and education and combine it with organizing with Design in Mind.

Prior to professional organizing, I worked for Fortune 100 companies in marketing. Now I employ the principles of organizing to enhance the lives of others through the design of systems and processes.

I enjoy organizing immensely. In doing this I have helped my clients enjoy such a great feeling of accomplishment. They, too, are so very satisfied since their lives became simpler and less stressed. Now they function more efficiently which makes their lives easier to manage on a day to day basis. They also feel their homes are more appealing.

Over the years, I developed a level of mastery in organization and became an inaugural Certified Professional Organizer® in 2007, an accomplishment I am proud of as there are only a few hundred of us in the world.

In addition to my passion for organizing, I add a creative flare to your home in the art of decorating. I enjoy nothing more than to turn a cluttered home into a beautiful environment where it becomes a place where you can finally breathe and enjoy your home.
I am known to pay attention to detail and understand the emotional and psychological issues in dealing with clutter. In addition to running my own company for 10 years, I am a wife and mother of 2 children and knows first hand how important it is to be organized.

As we organize our homes and offices and belongings and time, we also organize our minds. As we feel more organized mentally, we feel better emotionally. As we feel better emotionally, we are more able to set and reach our goals.
