Hi, it's nice to meet you....
My name is Joyous but some call me "Le Petite Tornado" due to my knack for organizing and quickly completing very large "to do" lists.
For over 15 years I have enjoyed providing private household/estate management and home organization for top executives and high profile families in both NYC and Los Angeles. These unique work environments showed me that anyone can have a completely functional live/work space if given the right tools. Your environment can provide relaxation as well as creative flow, both personally and professionally.
Prior to household/estate management, I was an early education art teacher. My time in the high scope classroom helped me develop the necessary skills for creating child friendly spaces. Long term storage solutions can be fun! Re-purposing items can reduce storage costs while donating outgrown toys & games can help clear the way for an educational upgrade. My time teaching also pushed me to move beyond painting to study floral design. In 2010 upon certification, I opened JFD Floral/Art Studio in NYC. My love for nature quickly inspired me to make better use of natural materials and to incorporate floral staging into my daily work and life.
I am presently working with many wonderful, courageous people! Some struggle with moderate to severe disorganization. Others need assistance with seasonal upgrades or help with organizing household staff or small businesses. All of these creative individuals have been my teachers. Letting go comes naturally for some. For others, letting go is a tedious and often emotional process....that's where I come in!
I am always happy to help with: household-staff management, home and business organization, paper management, deep-cleaning, de-cluttering, packing/moving assistance and home staging in the Los Angeles area.
