April Merritt, MLIS

I was born an organizer. As a kid, when I was put in time-out, I’d pull everything off my shelves just so I could rearrange it…because it made me feel better! Half the fun of babysitting was getting a chance to organize the playroom once the kids had gone to sleep. As a bookseller, my favorite part of the day was re-shelving the books. And as an adult, I went back to school for my Master’s in Library and Information Science, specializing in information organization, analysis, description, and retrieval.

I believe that less stuff is good. Less physical clutter can lead to less mental clutter – a philosophy I embrace wholeheartedly in my life. I like a clean desktop with the bare minimum of icons, grouping programs by function, and fine-tuning my process and systems on a regular basis.

But…your approach may be different. Maybe you like to use your desktop as an inbox. No big deal. Do you prefer to use Search to find your email rather than look through folders? We can work with that. Getting organized is about finding what works best for you.

With Ilios Digital Organizing my goal is to make it easy for you to find what you need when you need it, leaving you more time to do those things you love to do. And who doesn’t want more joy in their life?!
