I was born and raised in Wisconsin but have always had a special place in my heart for New York City. After moving here five years ago with a couple of suitcases and my senior cat, I realized I didn't miss any of the stuff I left behind and liked this new minimal and organized way of living. Around this time, I read a New York Times article about organizing guru Marie Kondo, promptly bought her book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, and started my own tidying journey. A year later, I put my dreams into motion and signed up for the first KonMari Method™ consultant training program in the US. The KonMari Method™ is one I truly believe in and am eager to share with anyone open to it.
