Therese is a California native but made her way to Texas in 2003. Before she arrived, she graduated from college with a Bachelors of Speech Communication and spent the next 25 years in and out of the classroom as an elementary and high school teacher. The combination of being a mom and a teacher allowed Therese to use her passion for organization to create spaces that balanced both function and aesthetics.
As a mom to six kids in a blended family, without organization, Therese knows her family would have lived in constant chaos. Her life experience allows her to work with and understand the special needs of families impacted by divorce or in the process of combining households and family dynamics. She uses physical organizing of spaces plus family coaching to bring calm to a sometimes challenging situation.
Outside of her organizing skills, Therese is excellent with home décor. She knows how to accessorize with color and accent pieces, install photo walls, and decorate a home for the holidays (she installs five full Christmas trees in her own home each year). Therese is also a party planner and will use these project coordination skills to keep her organizing clients on track.
In need of an organized craft room, closet, or game room? As a former teacher and leader of many mom’s craft groups, Therese has always been involved with scrapbooking, basic sewing, general crafts, Cricut design, and photo projects. She can set up systems to maximize space and add function, allowing her clients to enjoy their craft and be able to maintain the organization in the future.
Therese is truly skilled at organizing almost any space in a home including kitchens, pantries, closets, garages, home offices, workout rooms, and patios. She brings style and organized living together with practical and economical solutions.
In her free time, Therese enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, gardening, working on various “projects” at home, going to the movies, volunteering at church, attending her kids college events, browsing Pinterest, and taking walks in her neighborhood.
Therese is an avid photographer and enjoys travel, landscape, and portrait photography. She is the “Hostess with the Mostess” among her friends and can often be found planning a pool party, casual get together, kids gathering, or her annual Christmas party. Her successful life experiences and desire to learn new things will be a huge motivation and inspiration to our Get Organized! clients.
