About the Dynamic Duo!
Kathy was a delivery driver for FedEx for many years. That experience taught her many things about packing, shipping and efficiency. Her dependable, positive can-do energy gets the job done!
She is great at helping you decide what goes where, then how to get it there the best way. She believes sensitivity to your wishes is the starting point for healthy, happy downsizing and estate clearing.
Kathy also has a degree in horticulture, so if you have plant issues, there's a good chance she'll be able to consult with you about them too!
Kathy has earned three certificates -- Specialist in Life Transitions, Essentials of Organizing, and Residential Organizing -- from the National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals. She also has taken numerous classes, including "From IKEA to Death Cleaning: Swedish Concepts in Organizing," "The Last Stage of Life - Practical Preparations for Everyone, No Matter What Age!," "Still Someone: Organizing Older Adults with Memory Loss," "Home Inventories," "Organizing Dead People" and more.
Laura has been an organizer with a specialization in caring for environmental impact and non-profit organizations for decades. If something can be recycled, repurposed, or useful to someone else, Laura is great at recommending options and getting things to those new uses.
Her journalism background can help document stories and precious memories that go with things. She also has many tech tools in the Duo's "toolbox" to help families share information and photos of items. The Duo can also assist with systems to help you and your family manage out who wants what, decide who gets what, and get it there, no matter where they are located.
