Owner of Arranged Smartly

Cathy holds a degree in graphic design and has worked in the field for over 20 years. A foray into property redevelopment with her husband led her to discover a passion for home staging and professional organizing. It was a perfect fit, pairing her creative, visual side with her problem-solving nature. Cathy started Arranged Smartly in 2007 to assist those in need of her services.

HOME STAGING Cathy received her training with Barb Schwarz's Staged Homes, the nationally recognized founder of home staging. For four consecutive years, she has been elected to the board of the St. Louis chapter of International Association of Home Staging Professionals, serving as chapter president for 2010. Cathy is an active member of the group, which received an award from the St. Louis Crisis Nursery in recognition of the redesign of one of its offices. Maintaining the ASP designation requires adhering to standards and ethics, as well as sharing new ideas and information. This means an Accredited Staging Professional is dedicated to providing quality service for every client.

Cathy has been interviewed on KMOV's Great Day St. Louis, providing tips on how to stage a home.

PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZING Cathy is not a naturally organized person but after buying a small home several years ago, she learned to utilize simple, effective methods to contain clutter. It was life-changing and Cathy became a convert. Always a problem-solver, she found herself sharing the organized way with everyone in her life.

Cathy is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers and the Institute for Challenging Disorganization. She strictly adheres to the standards and code of ethics for both organizations.

Finding solutions to major issues for clients led her to Freedom Filer, a system that makes filing a simple and time-saving process, with easy methods that make purging files a breeze. Cathy earned the designation as Freedom Filer Certified Consultant after classroom training and passing a written and oral exam. It's a system she believes in strongly and one she uses for her own personal and business files.

Whether you're looking for organizing or staging guidance, Cathy is dedicated to providing solutions that will simplify your life.
