Meet Karen, a dedicated individual with a passion for organization and productivity. Karen's journey towards organization started from a childhood spent amidst clutter and disarray. However, with years of research, study, and experimentation, she has honed her skills and knowledge to become an expert in the field. As a mother of five, Karen has learned the importance of organization in leading a happy and fulfilling life, and is dedicated to helping others achieve the same.
Karen's extensive experience in the funeral and cemetery industry has also given her a unique perspective on the importance of having your affairs in order before it's too late. During her time in this industry, she realized the value of organizing photos, paperwork, and making end-of-life arrangements to bring peace of mind to families during their time of loss.
In addition to her organizational skills, Karen is also an education enthusiast, constantly seeking new knowledge and ways to improve. Trust Karen to help you live an organized, productive, and fulfilling life.
