Lindsay’s organizing skills developed over a decade while using them as her main coping mechanism for depression. Lindsay finds joy in increasing ease for people and organizing allows her to do that in a way that feels truly useful and lasting.
At Ease Up Organizing, Lindsay loves how organization is connected to mental wellness and how it allows our clients to engage in better self-care.
Sandra has always had a knack for organizing, often being referred to as Monica from friends by those closest to her, which you may find funny, but is extremely accurate. Sandra believes that being organized is a form of self-love because when you de-clutter your surroundings, you de-clutter your mind, allowing you to focus on nurturing your soul to experience life and find what brings you real joy.
Katelyn is an organizer and a writer, as well as an advocate for survivors of gendered violence. Her work in various social service contexts influences her writing on topics such as inequality, emotional well-being, and yes, organizing. She believes that a person will never be free until they rid themselves of the things that weigh them down — whether that’s shame, unsuitable relationships, or physical clutter in their personal spaces.
Jennifer’s personal passion for creating order out of chaos makes her a natural fit for home organizing. She finds joy in helping people, especially when it comes to improving the quality of their lives. After living in a tiny New York City apartment for several years, Jennifer is a master at optimizing space and minimizing clutter. More importantly, she loves finding ways to replace the things in her life with moments and memories that matter most.
Mel is motivated by the uniqueness that each organizational challenge presents, and meets each one with focus, enthusiasm, and creativity. Her social justice background makes her a valuable contributor to Ease Up’s commitment towards non-judgement and compassion. Mel believes that organization can be a powerful tool for change in a person’s life and is grateful to play a part in that. When not organizing, Mel is drinking good tea and reading good books.
Midhat relishes in the satisfaction she gets by taking a frustrating space and turning it into one that is easy to navigate, relaxing, and streamlined. She loves seeing the positive impact Ease Up makes on the mental health and day-to-day happiness of its clientele. It is one of the most rewarding aspects of the job. In her free time, she keeps busy lifting weights, participating in social justice movements, and playing video games.
Organizing for Sarah is a skill that has always come naturally to her. Traditionally organizing has been an undervalued skill set, so finding a business that allowed her to professionally organize has opened up a new purpose in life. Being able to share the immense feeling of ease and content with clients has been the biggest reward for Sarah. Leaving a client with a better sense of self and satisfaction is really a win-win for everyone.
