Marla works wonders whilst dispensing humor and wisdom. Nothing is too large or too small to escape her energetic attention or to challenge her ability to resolve personal and household dilemmas. I wish I had discovered her when I was first widowed, as her advice and expertise would have helped me come to terms with a new life more easily and swiftly.

With Marla’s systematic, no-nonsense approach, meticulous planning, tenacious follow-up and fun, energetic manner, we were able to sort through more than 20 years worth of paperwork and records. Not only did she help us decipher what we should and shouldn’t save, but she also created numerous manageable systems to keep us on track going forward. I cannot begin to describe the relief I feel knowing the project is behind us and was done to perfection. Marla is a real pro!

In the fall of 2010, Marla created the popular Get Organized curriculum for Florida Gulf Coast University’s Academy. Sharing her ideas, advice and methodology on such topics as How to Downsize & Move, How to Organize your Home/Work Office, How to Organize your Closets and How to Organize your Life has given countless attendees the inspiration they needed to get organized and take control of their lives. NAPLES’ PREMIER PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER®.

Marla is a lifesaver! Not only did she teach me how to prioritize my day-to-day tasks, but she developed personalized strategies to help me get, and stay, organized. Now that my life is in order, I have peace of mind, but most importantly, I have more time to spend with my family.

When it comes to giving back to the community, Marla’s passion and commitment are unparalleled. Preferring to work behind the scenes, Marla has been involved in numerous projects for St. Matthew’s House, the David Lawrence Center, the Shelter for Abused Women & Children, the Garden of Hope & Courage, the Naples International Film Festival/Artis—Naples and the Cancer Alliance of Naples, to name a few. Additionally, she has had the distinct honor of escorting two World War II veterans and two Korean War veterans to Washington, D.C., on four separate missions with the Collier County Honor Flight, a charity that holds a special place in her heart.

Marla’s professionalism, experience and intrinsic knowledge, coupled with her sharp wit, enthusiasm, boundless energy and ‘leave no job undone’ attitude works. Even my kids jumped on board the organizing train when they realized it was easier to be organized than to be nagged.
