What brought you to Thinking Organized?
Organization has always been a passion of mine; I truly enjoy helping others create meaningful organization systems for themselves. My role as Director of Operations at Thinking Organized plays both to my strengths and my interests. I love ensuring that the office is running smoothly, and, as a bonus, I get to interact with our wonderful clients on a daily basis!

What has been your greatest personal and/or professional achievement and why?
Without a doubt, putting myself through graduate school while working full time is my biggest achievement (so far!). Not only did I earn a master’s degree, which opened professional doors for me, but along the way, I picked up valuable life skills. Plus, I made some great friends.

What interesting fact would your clients & colleagues be most surprised to learn about you?
I “re”-learned how to ride a bike at the tender age of 23! Now, it’s one of my favorite hobbies. I love to bike all over the DC area, but most especially on the Capital Crescent Trail.
