We are thrilled to introduce you all to Kristen. We first met Kristen for some coffee at Honeylu’s and were immediately drawn to her inquisitive questions, and sweet personality. You could also get a sense that she was doing what she was meant to do, helping others get organized!

We are in awe of her natural abilities to simplify and could not recommend her services more. We can’t wait to share one of our own personal transformations she helped with next week so Stay Tuned!

It has been so fun to learn more about Kristen in this interview, and we can’t wait to continue to grow a friendship with her, we hope you enjoy!
