Here are some questions and answers to get to know Jill:
What will you be writing about, Jill?
I’ll share tips that will motivate and inspire readers to simplify and declutter their homes and lives.
Are you annoyed with messy, disorganized people?
No, I sympathize with folks who struggle with organization. Most of us lead hectic lives that make it difficult to keep clutter from messing up our homes. I’m eager to help clients who want to become more organized and less messy.
What’s the area in your home that requires the most organizing maintenance and how do you stay on top of it?
My kitchen counters. Dirty dishes, mail, and all the other stuff that end up on that beautiful flat surface, need my constant attention.
Unfortunately, I’m not immune to problem just because I’m a professional organizer. I have to deal with it daily, that’s the key, in order to stay on top of it.
How would you spend a free Saturday?
It would start with a yoga class, include lots of time chilling with my husband and daughter (when she is home from college) and end with dinner out with friends.
Give us four little-known facts about you.
- I have a short attention span when it comes to playing cards or board games.
- I’m passionate about nutrition but not enough to give up chocolate or cake.
- I thought I wanted to be a flight attendant when I grew up.
- I not ambitious enough to hold my own garage sales.
