Wendy Hanes is a born organiser who grew up in a family of clutter bugs and has a lifetime of experience in creating order out of chaos! (Her mother is still convinced her prescription bottles from the 1960’s will be a collector’s item one day and her Grandmother could never pass up a bargain even if she had absolutely no use for the item and would have to rent additional storage space to keep it). She is also a wife, mother and dog owner and understands the dynamics of a busy family.
Wendy has a Bachelor of Commerce and spent twelve years in marketing positions with Mars Confectionery of Australia and BMG. After starting a family the thought of returning to corporate life filled her with dread, so she decided to turn her passion for creating orderly environments into a professional organising service.
Wendy has been operating as a Professional Organiser since 2006 and has helped to restore order in more than 180 Melbourne households. In 2008 Wendy was awarded the inaugural AAPO President’s Award in recognition of outstanding work in the industry of Professional Organising. Wendy is an EXPERT Level Member of The Australasian Association of Professional Organisers (AAPO) and is the second Australian Professional Organiser to receive the prestigious designation of Certified Professional Organizer® (CPO®) from the Board of Certification for Professional Organizers®. Wendy is keenly interested in hoarding and has received Specialist Certificates in Chronic Disorganisation and Hoarding from the Institute for Challenging Disorganization.
Wendy shares her organising tips at the “An Organised World” Telesummit. (MP3 32MB)
