Mimi Burns, Organizing Expert
“There’s nothing better than walking away from someone’s home at the end of the day and knowing that I had the privilege of making their surroundings (and then consequently their lives) more functional and peaceful!” ~ Mimi Burns
Mimi’s career travels began after she earned her degree in interior design in 1995. She quickly realized that her true passion was organizing, with a flair for design. As a result, Mimi can also help you decorate your newly organized space(s)!
Working together with our clients, she creates organizing systems that are tailored to their needs and desires. During the organizing process, Mimi will teach you how to maintain that organization for years to come! She gets a thrill out of empowering clients to overcome their “mountains” of disorganization and regain peace and order in their lives.
In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, reading, swimming, biking, hiking and going on “adventures” with her two children around St. Louis. She also has a passion for music and attending cultural events at all the famous landmarks around our city.
