About Anne Lyons

I am a professional organizer and productivity consultant in Northern Virginia.  I’ve been helping people get control over their time, their to-dos and their stuff for over 8 years. I have a passion for creating order out of chaos and have honed the skills necessary to help others do the same, whether they need to find time to get things done, organize a decade’s worth of papers, or rearrange things in the kitchen. I get true joy and satisfaction using my skills and training to improve people’s daily lives. 

 

I was not born organized.  I used to be late all the time; I lost my keys, lost my wallet; lost my shoes in the bottom of the closet. But I desperately wanted to be organized, and living that way felt like failure to me. In my past life, I worked in television production for nearly 18 years. In those years I learned, sometimes the hard way, that unless you are organized, you cannot get a show on the air on time and on budget. I had amazing mentors along the way who taught me time management, people management, and space management -- all while engaged in a creative enterprise.

I left my career behind to take care of my kids. Becoming a parent, the disparate elements of my organizational style - disorganized personally, but organized professionally, came together in a hurry. As a parent, being organized provides for my kids' well being and my own personal sanity. And so, my second career found me. I started my Northern Virginia-based business because I love creating order out of chaos and making things work efficiently. Even more, I love helping others do the same. I get true joy and satisfaction from seeing my skills improve lives.

I’m a proud member of the National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals (NAPO)’s Golden Circle, and hold Specialist Certificates in Residential Organizing, Workplace Productivity, & Life Transitions.   I live in Northern Virginia with my husband Francis, kids Abby, Pj and Eliza the labradoodle.
