When you think about children and organization, you may not feel like the two have anything in common. You might even laugh because they seem […]
Hi! I’m Maria. I am the owner of This Organized Space, a business that provides professional home and office organizing services in and around Lake Country, WI. I grew up in Michigan, and I have had a knack for organizing since childhood, as evidenced by the alphabetized bookshelves, color-coded closets, and the impeccably organized pantry in my childhood home. I went to college in Minnesota and I began my career as a teacher right out of school. While I loved working in the classroom with kids, my heart continued to seek something different. It was around this time when I took my leap of faith and walked away from teaching to pursue a full-time business in organizing. I love the opportunities that professional organizing allows me to meet people in the midst of overwhelm and show them the way out. I love hearing about the freedom and peace that my clients feel after having worked through difficult areas with my guidance and expertise. I am even finding ways to tie my experience in the classroom in to my organizing business by providing organizing tips and strategies for teachers! I love meeting new people, connecting with amazing business owners, and exploring all the fun places in and around southeastern Wisconsin. Farmer’s markets are my favorite, and I am a summer girl at heart so I enjoy going anywhere where there’s water and a beautiful sunset. At home in Watertown, you can find me trying new recipes, going on a run or doing some yoga, reorganizing our pantry, and binge-watching HGTV shows.
