Julie Clarke
Professional Organizing Consultant
Owner, Organized at Last

Julie’s passion for organizing and creating clarity developed as a very young child. Due to her mother’s long-term illness, Julie’s childhood home was a place of chaotic disorder. Feeling as though she was “drowning” in the clutter, Julie decided to take matters into her own hands and began the tedious process of de-cluttering. Through clutter removal, streamlined systems, and time management, Julie finally experienced the freedom of organization and simplicity and thus began her lifelong passion for helping others to do the same.

Julie is a wife and mother of three sons. She holds a BA degree in Home Economics from Western Washington University and is a member of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers). She has owned and operated Organized at Last for 15 years and has over 25 years of experience in the field of professional organizing. Julie teaches classes and workshops on a variety of topics related to the subject of organization, and has spoken at many venues around the state sharing her expertise and passion for changing lives through ordering lives.

Jeannie Hayden
Professional Organizing Consultant

Jeannie joins Organized at Last after a long career in public education including 19 years in the Bellingham School District. She brings a wealth of experience supporting and leading people, managing projects and events, and keenly understands the interplay between career, family, relationships and personal health and fitness. She and her husband of over 35 years have raised two healthy children and together have created beautiful spaces by helping design and build two homes and tackling several significant remodels. She has navigated the complexities of numerous family and estate issues related to aging and dying family members. Jeannie asks questions, listens carefully and loves figuring out how to turn ideas into action plans. She’s a natural organizer and looks forward to supporting others in successfully managing a variety of organizational and transitional challenges.

Melissa Natri
Professional Organizing Consultant

Melissa is a wife to her high school sweetheart, and a mother of two. She grew up with parents who were into "flipping" houses, and naturally fell in love with the process of remodeling and has flipped (purchased, remodeled, and sold) a half a dozen of her own homes by renovating, as well as building two houses from scratch. Her mother would always call her the professional organizer in the family starting from a little girl. She would also organize most of her friends' houses and always wished she could do it as a job as a grown up.

Melissa has a degree in Sociology from UBC. Her early work experience has been in the airline industry as well as administration at a high-end design firm called Herman Miller, at the University of B.C. and a provincial agency, B.C. Hydro. Although the experience at these large organizations has been amazing, she has never felt her passion for design and organizing has been as satisfied as she does now with helping people organize and recreate their space to something practical and beautiful. She is currently enrolled in an online Interior design diploma program to further develop her skills and understanding of design.

Melissa believes passionately in the transformation of a space helping people function better.

Carmen Williams
Professional Organizing Consultant

Carmen has been a visual merchandiser for nearly 20 years, with most of that experience being at Greenhouse here in Bellingham. She is newly married to her best friend and gets to be a mom to the sweetest girl on the planet! Together they are taking on a 1907 fixer upper that is going to be the greatest creative endeavor yet!

She has a fine arts degree and went back to school for building construction technology so she could make homes happy. But, her creative instinct comes from growing up with a talented mom that would let her work alongside her.

She takes joy in making spaces better, which has now led her to Organized at Last. She not only enjoys the difference it makes in clients spaces, but how it changes their lives.

Rhachael
Professional Organizing Consultant

Rhachael is a motivated, passionate, nature-loving, organizing enthusiast. She has a diploma in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Vancouver and has always enjoyed creatively simplifying spaces. She's come to realize that it's not just a hobby but a lifestyle choice. Her passion for organizing drives her to help people who need balance in their lives and to create spaces that exude order and functionality. She loves playing with color relationships to visually balance the space and establishing a foundation of order to inspire the client to continue to stay focused on living a more organized life. She believes that a functional space creates a happy and healthy lifestyle that promotes positive energy, that's why kitchens and bedrooms are her favorites to organize. When she's not organizing she's planning far away adventures, taking pictures, or hiking with her incredible boyfriend and their rambunctious dog, Odi.
