I grew up in Colorado, in a big family where we learned the value of hard work, efficiency, and ingenuity. My dad taught us about environmental stewardship and the concept of "Reduce, Re-use, Recycle" before it became mainstream and I still employ these values in my work today.
Several years ago I examined my work history and a clear pattern emerged. The work I enjoyed and excelled at always involved some type of organizing. Whether it was editing and proofing documents, arranging meetings, streamlining office procedures for efficiency, or re-arranging friends' furniture for optimal traffic flow (with permission of course!), I loved it. When I realized all the other things I’d like about becoming a Professional Organizer - logistics and planning, working with people one-on-one, using color and design, being physically active, listening carefully- Shipshape with Kate was born.
My favorite part of being an organizer is providing immediate, practical improvement in my clients' daily lives! What can I do for you?
