Cate Richards

After organizing the offices and processes of a small glass manufacturing company for 13 years, Cate decided to follow her true calling and became a professional organizer. Cate has had most varied experiences – she organized a professional mechanic garage top to bottom as well as traveled to Florida to help unpack a client who moved from Boston to Florida.  She now lends her organizational expertise to seniors and families trying to reduce the clutter and simplify their own lives.

Cate specializes in helping seniors transition to smaller living environments, maintaining those special and meaningful items while letting go of the clutter collected over decades of life. She truly enjoys working with clients to create a warm and inviting space that they can maintain on their own. With less confusion in the home, her clients have more time and opportunity to participate in their favorite activities and hobbies.

One of the greatest benefits of organized living is the ability to do the things you enjoy most in life, rather than taking care of the things that own you. Cate enjoys spending her free time with her family and friends exploring the beaches and lakes of New England.

Cate has been a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) for the past 7 years and the NAPO New England Chapter.
