Amy is the CEO and driving force behind Simplify Organizing, LLC. She is passionate about helping her clients get… AND STAY organized and couldn’t dream of a job more suited to her strengths and personality. Amy performs many roles for the company, here are a few:
Amy gives back! From the very first years of her business, to present day, Amy has made sure to make the time for volunteering in her community. She was instrumental in the creation of MAPO’s Community Outreach board position and also served as it’s chair for several years.
She led multiple teams of professional organizers over multiple years to make significant improvements at the House of Ruth (a shelter for women of domestic violence). She volunteered in their the clothing room, utility room, children’s clothing and toy rooms, their storage garage, kitchen restock room and their donation receiving room.
She led teams of professional organizers to revamp and organize the tool room for the Baltimore Habitat for Humanity. She also participated in non-organizing help that involved installing insulation and jackhammering!
She led a team of organizers for a “Clear the Clutter Day” at Gallagher Services, a non-profit organization dedicated to help individuals with intellectual disabilities.
She led a team to organize the relocation of offices for the Baltimore area NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). She helped pack and move NAMI into a temporary location and then moved them back into their newly renovated offices a few months later.
Amy led a team to organize three separate hospital staff rooms and supply rooms at UMMC (the University of Maryland Medical Center). The improvements made gave doctors and nurses more space to review their patient files and created systems for improved collaboration and supply management.
Amy performed a complete make-over to the teacher’s faculty lounge at Trinity Episcopal Children’s Center, a Towson pre-school. She decluttered, redesigned the layout, selected new furniture/curtains/pillows/lighting, and re-organized everything within so it not only fit comfortably, but looked and functioned beautifully.
Amy lead a team of organizers to volunteer for the Baltimore Curriculum Project. She organized the reading specialist’s classroom and the text book storage room at an inner city elementary school in Baltimore.
Amy lead one of the three teams established by NAPO-Baltimore’s Messiest Room Photo Contest and transformed a overstuffed multipurpose room into a streamlined home office and craft room.
