Mimi Burns, Organizing Expert
“It is so fulfilling to see the transformation from chaos to tranquility, and the peace and joy it brings to my clients!”
Mimi’s has been helping people get organized since 2009! She creates organizing systems that are tailored to her clients’ needs and desires. With a degree in interior design, and a flair for design, she can also help you decorate your newly organized space(s)!
A top-notch closet and playroom organizer, she’s an expert at paying attention to all of the small details! She loves working one-on-one with clients that have reached the point of surrender with excess and clutter. And, those who are willing to let go to have purposefully organized spaces in their home. She gets a thrill out of empowering clients, to overcome their “mountains” of disorganization, so that they can regain peace and order in their lives.
She helps to attack the paper piles that are spread throughout your house. Knowing that many people are unsure of what to keep, or let go of, she will help you navigate through those decisions. Then she’ll set up a filing system that will keep your paperwork organized for years to come! You can even schedule maintenance sessions so that Mimi can do all of your filing. That way, paper clutter won’t ever take over your space again.
In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, reading, swimming, biking, hiking and going on “adventures” around St. Louis. She also has a passion for music and attending cultural events at all the famous landmarks around our city.
