MEET THE TEAM
FOUNDER & CEO
My whole life I've had a deep passion for taking neglected spaces and things and bringing them back to life.
My father’s garage is where my passion for organizing began. He had about 5 to 10 of every tool imaginable, and no true designated place for any of them. I remember the smells of oil, cars, tools, wood chips… and clutter. I would go in and spend hours putting all the screwdrivers in one place and the wrenches in another. I would get lost in that experience for hours.
I’ve had a passion for helping and coaching people since I was young, as well. For over 20
years I taught yoga and had a massage therapy practice where I got to sharpen my skills while guiding people through yoga practices and relaxation. These skills (combined with patience, acceptance, and non-judgment) come in very handy at Be Free Organizing.
I've always been a hard worker, and would look for others to provide me a place to use my passion and energy. Often, I'd ask friends or people I hardly knew who were doing things I found interesting if they were hiring! In 2008, while on a job site building custom homes, I realized my favorite part of the build was keeping the job site organized...
I checked that night to see if people actually organized for a living, and that was the beginning of me creating my dream job. 13 years later, I'm excited to have a place for me to bring my passion and hard work, and to provide this for others.
As a young rascal, my parents often found me digging through unpacked boxes in the basement from previous moves. By the age of 13, I was riding my bike 5 miles to make $3.75 an hour assisting and working with Mr. Fuller and Mr. Jacobson caring for their estates, located along the Minnesota River Valley. This provided many learning opportunities: from tending prized rose bushes and tackling odd jobs to basic maintenance of a home.
By my late teens, when it came time for both households to move, I was right back where my parents usually found me: this time packing boxes, deep cleaning, and assisting with the preparations of selling a home.
About a decade ago, I resigned from managing a Media Arts and Communications team. My partner and I discovered Boulder, CO and I met Brian Saeger. The rest is history...
As a live-in personal assistant for a woman with M.S. and working for BE FREE ORGANIZING, I continue to use the knowledge, skills, and care I learned from my early teen years to support the community.
I've worked in Sales, Marketing and Business Development for the past 20 years and come from a long line of entrepreneurs. I've represented gourmet foods and B2B/B2C services, as well as owned an organizing & concierge company in New Mexico.
I understand the benefits of living in an organized space, and realize that many people just need a little help to get there.
When I'm not at work, I spend my free time hiking Colorado 14ers.
Organizing is my yoga. I love the feeling of narrowing down things to have a wide vision and work through it. Makes me feel calm and focused.
I feel that I have control when things around me are organized, the feeling of being in a clean and organized environment it's amazing. I love helping people to get the same feeling.
It's great to feel helpful. Life is busy and organizing takes time, I'm honored to assist people to get where they need.
My passion for organization and space clarity started when I moved from a four-bedroom house, into a 550 square foot cabin in the mountains with my husband and 120lb dog. There was barely enough room for ourselves, let alone the “I’ll fix it someday!”
items that we all hold onto regardless of the fact that more often than not, they’re glorified dust collectors.
Through this newly found passion and realization for what organizing and downsizing can do for the soul, I was lucky enough to find Be Free and Brian and turn it into a rewarding and fulfilling career.
After completing a project with a client, I truly enjoy seeing them relax as they unload some of the stress in their lives. I can’t wait to help you restructure your living space and help you find your own personal sanctuary.
I have always had a passion for organizing, cleaning, and straightening up spaces around the house. Being one of the oldest in a large family I was often tasked with these chores, but really enjoyed doing it too. I would often organize unused nooks in our home, a little toy play space under the stairs or a club house hangout space in the attic. There is such a satisfying calmness that comes with decluttering and seeing the true potential of a space.
Throughout my life I have continued this passion with my own family. Constantly removing items, we don’t need, use, or even like, and creating little spaces we all can enjoy. Decluttering, downsizing, or moving to a new space can really give you the opportunity to highlight the things you love and want to be surrounded by. The Be Free Organizing method does just that, and having the opportunity to be a part of the process, be of service, is such a rewarding and uplifting feeling.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always found a sense of calm when I’m living or working in an organized space. However, it was years before I learned it was possible to have a career in what I innately love to do. After nearly 20 years in technology marketing, I left the corporate world to pursue my passion for helping people create organized spaces that are more livable and functional, turning chaos to calm and allowing them to be more productive, enjoy their homes, and simplify their lives.
Organizing isn’t a one size fits all solution. I approach each project and client differently in order to understand their desired outcome and what works or doesn’t work for each individual and/or family. I’ve worked on many different types of organizing projects from Instagrammable kitchen pantries and closets to soul satisfying space decluttering and organizing that are both practical and functional. Each project presents a new challenge that I find energizing and incredibly fulfilling.
I’ve always told people that organizing is my therapy. The smiles, joy, and gratitude I get from my clients is immensely rewarding and I feel fortunate to have my life’s passion also be what I do professionally.
