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, mother of 3 grown and married sons and 3 amazing grandchildren. She has owned and operated OAL for over 20 years. Julie has taught 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.
Marissa has enjoyed organizing her whole life, she just didn’t realize it until adulthood! She was a messy child, but took pleasure in cleaning and organizing her best friend’s bedroom since they couldn’t play until it was done! As an adult, she had been organizing her friend’s homes for years, but felt aimless in choosing a career after her college graduation from Western in 2015 (B.S. in Psychology). These were fun projects for her, but she didn’t realize you could do it for a living.
One day, after a brainstorming session and a Google search she found Julie Clarke and Organized At Last, and she knew she had to be a part of this amazing mission to help people live emptier, fuller lives! She has a particular love for organizing bedrooms and closets, and she is often the go-to girl for heavy lifting and consignment (she practically lives at Labels!). She loves learning about design from the other women on the team and believes that an organized living space leads to an organized, and peaceful, mind. The feeling of giving another person peace in their home is like no other.”

After 24 years in the classroom, Michelle retired from teaching and joined lifelong friend, Julie Clarke, at Organized At Last. Michelle and her husband, Norm, have remodeled four homes and have recently downsized to a smaller home which required organizational skills such as those taught in Julie’s classes. Michelle likes their home to be calm, comfortable and uncluttered. The Dahl’s have two grown sons, one daughter in law, and an adorable grandson.
