Marlene Ashdown Simmons, President of Organize This, Inc., has been in the computer field for over 30 years as owner, manager, training supervisor and technican at Computer mD, Inc. After selling the business in 2001, she was drawn to the Organizing business through, as she calls it, "a God Send".
With drive and force, she focused on learning everything she could about the organizing business by means of research and development, networking and becoming a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers.
This lead her to many opportunities to help others in their homes and businesses become more stuctured and focused. She does quarterly workshops through Lantana Middle School and continues to do research online and reads many organizing books and periodicals for new ideas.
Helping people in their lives has proven a great educational tool as well. Having the creativity to see something and improve on it, has made her company very successful. The love of her work helps drive her and following up with her clients afterwards keeps them on track as well.
