I spent most of my career as a graphic designer in NYC, LA, and DC.

I also have experience working as an Administrative Assistant and a Kitchen Assistant in the teaching kitchen at Sur La Table.

I am excited to be a part of the NAPO-WDC Board. As a member of NAPO since December 2016, I have discovered a network of talented and generous like-minded people. I am looking forward to serving the Local Chapter.

Director of Membership

Debbie Smith, KYSS: Keep Your Stuff Simple

(703) 851-5504  |  membership@dcorganizers.org

My skills in organizing, team building, project managing and creative problem-solving led me to the founding of “Keep Your Stuff Simple, LLC”  (KYSS) in 2015.  I love helping folks live simply in the spaces and places they have, or move to.

I joined NAPO in 2016 to be a part of a team of like minded professionals, meet new friends and to learn and grow as a professional organizer. This is my first year as a Member of the Board and I'm looking forward to an exciting year of contributing and learning, and growing chapter membership!

I am the founder and owner of Just Organize It LLC,  a company specializing in office organization, and daily money management serving clients In Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland.  After working in the banking industry for over 15 years both internationally and domestically, I developed skills that help clients organize their offices, paper, and I assist them with all their daily money management needs.  I offer traditional and digital filing systems, paper "action" systems and budgeting and payment systems. I am a certified Freedom Filer specialist and a certified document specialist with family Documap. When clients are organized in their offices, they feel less stress and can enjoy life more.

Director of Business Partners

Sharon Bliss, Book Bliss Online

(571) 594-7708  |  businesspartners@dcorganizers.org

They say that my love of books manifested early; I was reading at the age of three. So maybe starting Book Bliss Online was inevitable. So, what does Book Bliss Online do? I’m the solution to all those books in the house that you want to get out, and don’t know how. I clear them out for you, pay for the ones I can resell, and donate the rest.

I’m looking forward to serving on the board as Director of Business Partners this year, and to helping the chapter grow!

Director of Marketing

Terri Phillips, It's an Organized Life

(703) 678-9892  | marketing@dcorganizers.org


Director of Programs & Professional Development

Barbara Fusciello, 

(703) 801-0258  | development@dcorganizers.org

While my business is new, my love of organizing is not. I enjoyed helping friends and family tackle organizing projects before I knew such a field existed. The skills I developed on my varied career path will be put to good use as a professional organizer.  I have worked in publishing, commercial real estate, and the legal field, and have taught ESL As a freelance writer I have been published in local magazines and newspapers, and I have written blog posts for clients. My current part-time position at The Container Store allows me to help customers find the right solutions for their organizing needs, and I get to see all the fun products!

As a new member to NAPO-DC I am excited to throw my hat in the ring for the office of Director of Programs and Professional Development. I would welcome this opportunity to both contribute to, and become further engaged with, the chapter.
