In 2007, the entrepreneurial spirit hit me, and I founded BB’s Clutter Solutions. Since so many people tell me they are overwhelmed and don’t know where to start to de-clutter, I decided to take what comes naturally to me and share these skills with those who want to become and stay organized.
Learn more about my story:
Being organized is a way of life. Think how productive you can be and how much you would enjoy spending time in your home or your office when the area around you is not cluttered. I bring a caring, patient, and non-judgmental attitude to every situation. This approach helps you feel less stressed about making decisions and keeps you motivated to continue so that you can regain control over your life. You will learn to put simple systems in place so that your time and energy is freed-up for the activities you truly enjoy. In fact, we will also have fun during the process!
I have over 25 years of experience managing customer service and project teams. I was responsible for identifying unproductive ways of doing things and then developing and implementing workplace efficiencies. My corporate background, combined with my degree in social work from Syracuse University, led me to the world of professional organizing. As a child playing house with a friend, I set up my kitchen with zones, and as an adult, I made sure my desk was in neat and orderly piles at the end of the day so I could start the next day knowing where I was going to begin working.
I am an active member of both the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO), and of my local NAPO Greater Philadelphia Chapter, having served on the Board of Directors as Membership Director for three years. I am also affiliated with the Institute for Challenging Disorganization.
I am a Certified Professional Organizer (CPO®) and a member of the Golden Circle. Certified Professional Organizers must pass a written test, be an organizer for at least three years, have at least 1500 hours of paid work experience and abide by the highest ethical standards, which includes complete confidentiality. Golden Circle membership is designed for NAPO members who have been a member of NAPO for at least a year and have been organizing for five years or more. Besides proving to myself that I could achieve both of these goals, I also wanted to confirm my dedication and contribute personally to the professional organizing industry, display my ongoing commitment to personal development and education and show I am on the cutting edge of my industry.
I am presently serving on the Board of Directors as Vice President of a non-profit organization, the Outdoor Club of South Jersey. I am bringing my leadership, process improvement, and efficiency skills to this organization. Being in nature feeds my soul, so this is a perfect fit.

A note of thanks from a happy client:
I appreciate you! Had to take the time to send Kudos to you for your assistance in organizing my Empire (Erick’s Place, Forgive4U and Life). The days we spent purging what seems to be tons of paper has helped me breathe. As I continue to get rid of clutter, I can actually see myself making progress. I even changed the location of my desk (as you suggested) and the ability to look out the window is so relaxing. Thanks so much, Barbara. BB’s Clutter Solutions is truly a worthwhile investment. I’ll be converting the closets this weekend.
