It was a great honor to be recognized for the many years of volunteering and leadership, with the President’s Service to NAPO Award in 2018. NAPO President Ellen Delap noted the impact of Beth’s work, saying “her role touches each of us at NAPO in coordinating all our outreach to our new members. Thank you, Beth, for all you do for NAPO both in Chicago and nationally.”
Batavia Magazine recently featured Elizabeth in “A Passion for Organization”: “I am always excited when I’m working with clients and they tell me the processes they have done and the things they’ve learned from me. The main focus of my business is when someone is stuck or needs solutions to an organizing problem. I am there to guide them and offer them a solution to their situation!”
In 2015 Elizabeth was one of the featured professional organizers for the organizing expert Peter Walsh’s “Peter’s Organizing Pals” YouTube video series where she presented “How to Organize for Your Tailgate Party“. The video shows some great ways on how to get organized when you are hosting a tailgate party at football games or other sporting events.
Organized To Perfection is listed in ShopSmart magazine (the quick and easy guide from Consumer Reports, March 2014 edition). Elizabeth was featured in the cover story “That organizer changed my life!” where she listed specific organizing products to help with organizing challenges. Also, Elizabeth was a resource for the article “Cheap organizing tricks,” in ShopSmart (March 2013 edition) and found that products from dollar stores at times work just as well as the ones from the high-end stores.
Elizabeth was also on two episodes of the “Hoarders” A&E TV show where she volunteered to help families deal with their hoarding behaviors and give the families a safe and organized home to live in.
