Jon has been a Professional Organizer since 2017, and prior to that he was the go-to guy for his friends and family when they needed help organizing their spaces. For as long as he can remember, he’s loved helping people create order and peace in their homes. Organization is his favorite form of meditation.
After years of experience in marketing, graphic design, and owning a children’s clothing store, Jon decided to refocus and do what he loves most–organizing!
Jon is dedicated to working with people to create unique plans that help them achieve their organizing goals. From kitchens to closets to garages, Jon uses his years of experience to bring peace and calm to our clients’ homes.
He currently serves on the Board of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO), and is a member of NAPO National.
