    Speaker

    Janet Schiesl is a Certified Professional Organizer and the owner of Basic Organization. Her company provides professional organizing services to busy families, home-based business owners and moving clients in the Northern Virginia and Washington DC Metro area. 

    She has grown from a solo practitioner to a team with six employees that specialize in big jobs with a tight time frame. So along with working one-on-one with clients, they also can pack or unpack a home in one day, organize a garage or basement in record time or deal with piles of paper or an over-stuffed closet or pantry.

    Schiesl is the co-author of "Get Organized Today," a collaboration of many professionals, to provide inspiration that affirms the power and importance of getting organized. The book provides practical ideas that one can use immediately to live a better, more effective life. She has also been interviewed by several publications. 

    Schiesl has spoken to a number of groups, including new organizing business start-ups, the IKEA Visual Merchandisers, the Association of Interior Design Professionals and at the NAPO 2011 and NAPO 2014 national conferences. She will also be a presenter at NAPO's 2021 Virtual Conference. She also offers fun workshops to the public including "The Simple Magic of List Making" and "A Paper Organizing Party."

    She is the Past President of the Washington DC Chapter of NAPO.  She is a member of NAPO's Board of Directors. Schiesl has been honored by her colleagues in receiving the Professional Organizer of the Year award and the Volunteer of the Year award from the Washington DC NAPO chapter.
