Owner & CEO
Wendy is dedicated to discovering what’s most important and then developing strategies to get everything else out of the way. With her non-judgmental approach and calming energy (combined with a healthy dose of reality and a sense of humor), she works with clients to make decisions and take action to create desired change. She applies this approach to physical objects in residential and office environments, but also to intangible “clutter” – such as tasks, obligations and goals – helping to maximize her clients’ productivity and organization. Some of her favorite clients have ADD – something that Wendy sees as an asset to creative thinkers and entrepreneurs!
After running her own successful organizing company on her own for 8 years, Wendy acquired Living Peace in fall of 2015 for the collaboration, leadership and growth opportunities presented by the company. She was immediately attracted to the strength of the team of organizers and the philosophy and approach of the Living Peace brand.
Prior to transitioning her career to the organizing industry, Wendy spent ten years working in the fast-paced, deadline-driven world of advertising and marketing, where she honed her time management, organization and leadership skills. She is active in the New England chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO-NE), having served four years on the Board of Directors and as a two-term chapter President. She currently serves as the New Organizer Workshop Chair, coordinating opportunities for those entering the industry to receive introductory education and information about the profession.
Wendy is a Certified Professional Organizer and has earned Level II CD (Chronic Disorganization) and ADD Specialist designations from the Institute for Challenging Disorganization.
Wendy lives in Arlington, MA with her husband Mike (bookstore owner), their 4-year-old son Tony, and rescue dog Rosie. In her free time, she loves to entertain and plan events, visit Downeast Maine, and is a competitive fantasy football player. She is a repeat 39-mile walker for the Avon 39, The Walk to End Breast Cancer.
