Joy Grapentine
Joy GrapentineLead Professional Organizer

She loves to help people have more time for what’s important to them by spending less time wrangling stuff. In a former life she worked in the software industry as a project manager and a technical writer, where she honed her skills as an interested listener and enthusiastic organizer.

She has an innate sense of order, creating systems that work for each individual. Joy is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers. Joy’s other interests include running and swimming, and she brings that energy–and occasionally the faint perfume of chlorine–to her work.
