Shortly afterward, I moved to NYC for law school, and I passed the bar in 2012. And although I did enjoy the challenge of organizing all my belongings into my 250-square-foot studio apartment, I did not find fulfillment in my career choice. So, on December 31, 2015, after selling almost everything I owned, I drove a rented van over the George Washington Bridge, travelled the States, and eventually circumnavigated the globe. After much reflection, I decided to move back to Wilmington, NC, where I felt I could build a life and a career, and decided to start organizing professionally, an idea I had revisited many times since 2009.
I'm now a trained professional organizer continually seeking and receiving specialized and ongoing education. I'm studying every book and every bit of information I can find on organization and the psychology behind clutter.

Born and raised in Maryland, Linzie graduated from Towson University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies in 2013. Her ultimate goal through college and after was to find a job where she could help people. For the longest time it wasn't 100% clear for her what that would look like.
With over 15 years of experience in customer service; from being a lifeguard, to serving, cashiering & reception and managing an online grocery shopping department, it’s the organizational parts of the jobs that Linzie loves most and where she excels the most!
She's always been organized and somewhat of a perfectionist. She remembers re-writing my math notes in middle school because they weren’t neat enough and always having to keep her binders and folders just so. As an adult, she always has a planner, writes lists and is constantly rearranging the items in her home.
