Growing up in Houston, Texas, with seven other siblings, Helen was born with the “organizing gene” which she inherited from her mother. Helen went to college to pursue a career in oil and gas by studying Geology. She spent seven years with a major oil and gas company but instead of oil and gas exploration, she transitioned to the records management department. That led to a career in records management that continued through 2005.
Thirty years ago, Helen’s husband started his own computer service company and Helen began keeping the books and assisting him with all the business paperwork. Helen honed her QuickBooks and Quicken skills over the years by adding clients on the side and working part-time for a commercial real estate developer.
Then in 2007, Helen took the leap of becoming an entrepreneur: she became a professional organizer, joined NAPO and started HBS Organizing, with an emphasis on organizing home and business offices. She became a CPO® (Certified Professional Organizer) in 2011.
Helen joined AADMM and is an insured Daily Money Manager with a passion for problem solving and detail-oriented projects.
Helen loves working with busy professionals, families, seniors and their adult children. At home in Houston, Helen has an intense love of learning and likes to spend time reading, traveling and staying as active as she can by doing Pilates, yoga and barre classes.
