My name is Cathy Fairchild. My business card says I am a Certified Professional "organizer" but I prefer to describe myself as a "simplifier." I am passionate about simplifying my home, my office, my schedule....everything! It makes sense that if all aspects of your life are less complicated, it takes less time to maintain them--and that gives you more time to do the things you love. Everybody is different, so there is no secret to getting and staying organized...it takes effort. I strongly believe that it starts with simplifying and having less "stuff" and then organizing what you have left so you can find it easily.
I have been a member of NAPO (National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals) for almost five years and I am a member of two Special Interest Groups (SIGs)...."Working With Seniors" and the "Moving and Relocation" SIG. Both groups meet monthly to collaborate and share tips in order to better serve our clients.
Mishawaka, Indiana has been my home for over 33 years and I serve all of Michiana - Mishawaka, Granger, Notre Dame, Elkhart, South Bend, Osceola, Niles, Edwardsburg, MI and more............

What is a CPO?
2 years ago I earned the designation of Certified Professional Organizer!
This credential is designed to elevate professional standards, enhance individual performance, and identify industry professionals who demonstrate the knowledge essential to professional organizing and productivity counseling. CPOs have proven industry proficiency by documenting a specific number (1,500 hours in 3 years' time) of paid transfer-of-skill client contact hours, passing the Board of Certification for Professional Organizers (BCPO) examination, and agreeing to adhere to the Code of Ethics for Certified Professional Organizers. After passing the exam, certification lasts 3 years. To re-certify for another 3 years, CPOs may submit 45 hours of continuing education that help them improve the work they do with their client base, or they may re-take and pass the current BCPO exam. The Certified Professional Organizer credential is the only industry credential endorsed by NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers).
