Who is Karen? Well, I grew up in a home with a lot of clutter and total lack of organization. I was not born organized or taught organization as a child, but I have been able to obtain the knowledge and develop the systems to become organized by spending my time researching, studying and experimenting. So I know that it is possible to get organized and I have dedicated myself to helping others discover their systems and live organized, productive and happy lives. Trust me being a mom of five made it a real necessity!
I also spent over 20 years in the funeral and cemetery industry assisting families during the loss of their loved ones. It was during this time I realized how important it was to get everything in order before a death occurs. Sharing what you want to have happen to your things, getting your photos organized to tell your story, dealing with all your paperwork and having a Will (don't forget Power of Attorney and Health Directive) to provide everyone with the peace of mind they need.
PS. You may have noticed I'm also an education junkie!
