Hi, I'm Mel!

Although much of my career was spent in fundraising and nonprofit management, I’ve been an organizer my entire life. Ever since I was a little girl sorting my Barbie clothes by color and occasion, I’ve loved the tranquility and calmness of a well-organized space.


While living in Milwaukee in 2003, I started a professional organizing business called The Mess Manager LLC. I loved working with my clients, and I was blessed to  learn from so many wonderful mentors in the industry.


In 2005, my family moved to Wausau, and my passion for helping others create order in their lives took a backseat to life with a newborn, a toddler, and a part-time job managing a small nonprofit organization.


Almost two decades later, that baby and toddler are beginning their adult lives and following their dreams, and it’s time for me to do the same. I started Organizing Central LLC in 2022 to return to my passion for helping people create orderly living spaces and efficient systems for managing the details of their lives.


I am a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO), and Organizing Central LLC is an elite professional organizer in the Wausau, WI professional organizers directory on FindMyOrganizer.com.

Ready for more order in your life?
