I have over 15 years experience in managing offices. Most recently I was the president's executive assistant at the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, an organization with 1,400 members and a staff of 30. Over time I became the office manager, human resources administrator and coordinator of some special events. My business, Klarify Co., is flourishing as I work with clients that include busy executives, new moms, and individuals experiencing transitions such as death and divorce.

Organizing since childhood, I now engage in a realistic/holistic approach to organizing for each client. I emphasize less mess, less stress and therefore more time for harmonious living. Clients learn concepts and skills while we work together creating space and work-flow systems, implementing organizing tools, files, cleaning, planning and even go-fering. I am also a Master Gardener and teach on the use and benefits of organized gardening for stress therapy, culinary, decorative, medicinal, and ultimately - personal gratification.
Hailing from the bluegrass state of Kentucky, Erin Hayes has been an organizer since she was 9 years old. She would move from room to room of her family’s home, purging and defining spaces. Little did she know that a whole industry existed to feed her addiction. Now a professional organizer and busy growing her own business, she also spends time collaborating with and assisting fellow organizers in various projects around the city. “I love getting to know people by learning what they cherish most. People’s needs and spaces vary, but no matter how much room we find, everyone is happy when everything has a home.”
Organization is a process. I design, with patience and empathy, using hands on and coaching, customized solutions for paper & time management and the effective use of space; working on clutter consolidation, filing systems, memorabilia organization, relocation assistance, knowing that success is a function of being able to Find Everything.

Technical background includes: executive secretarial education and experience, computer word processing, bookkeeping and spreadsheet applications.
