Katherine Trezise is the founder and president of Absolutely Organized. She established the company in 1999 with a desire to help people who were experiencing the negative consequences of not being able to organize themselves. She recognized that her passion and her organizational skills could free these people to spend their time and energy on the people, things, and activities that are important to them.
In addition to managing the day-to-day operations of Absolutely Organized, Katherine specializes in helping people challenged by chronic disorganization organize their homes, offices, and personal bookkeeping. She is a frequent speaker on organizing at community and non-profit events, and at international professional organizing conferences.
In 2007, Katherine was part of the first group of professional organizers to earn the designation of Certified Professional Organizer from the Board of Certification for Professional Organizers (BCPO). She has been awarded the designation of Certified Professional Organizer in Chronic Disorganization® by the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD). She is also a graduate of The Coach Approach for Organizers training program, established by the renowned organizational industry expert and coaching guru, Denslow Brown.
A past president of ICD, Katherine also holds a specialist certificate in Attention Deficit Disorder from the organization. She is a Golden Circle member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and a founding member of the NAPO-Baltimore Chapter.
Katherine holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology from McDaniel College and a master of business administration from Loyola University, Maryland. She has had many years of organizing experience in retail and association management. Katherine currently resides in Johns Creek, Georgia with her husband and is the proud parent of an adult son and daughter.
In an effort to help people who are suffering from chronic disorganization, organization experts Katherine Trezise and Jennifer Power recently published their book My Journey to an Organized Life: A Creative Road Map for Organizing Your Time, Space, and Finances. This book is quite unique in the sense that it breaks the mold of traditional organizational self-help books and uses the power of a story to motivate people on their journey to a more organized life.
“With a pro like Kathy Trezise leading the charge, anyone can find her way to the organized life.”
