About Terina

Terina M. Bainter
CPO, COC, ACC
Certified Professional Organizer
Certified Organizer Coach
Associate Certified Coach

By the time I was nine years old, I was regularly taking a tape measure to my room and devising schemes to organize its contents in a way that maximized accessibility, convenience, and space. You could say I was born with a natural affinity for organization! 

Not everyone is born this way, and that’s why I started my Professional Organizing business in 2012 to help others reach their potential by decluttering and organizing their homes. I am always learning, and my commitment to my business is clear – I am one of less than 10% of organizers who have attained their Certified Professional Organizer credential, among my many other certifications! 

Ultimately, my goal is to enhance your life and save you money by reducing the anxiety, time, and expense of your cluttered environment. 

Let’s create the home you deserve!
