Watch Sandra in Action

The feedback from the ladies was through the roof that you were fantastic! Thank you for being real and encouraging to our MOPS group. Everyone enjoyed your talk and were buzzing about getting started with the hot topics and the techniques you showed us. You are such a great speaker! Educational, funny and down to earth too.

I just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with your presentation at CMU. Not only was the information presented helpful for all of us, but you also very successfully engaged a wide ranging audience. Your presentation earns high marks for both content and your speaking ability. It was impressive.

Sandra did an amazing job presenting to the RV Women's Alliance. She brought great practical tips and a presentation that allowed our attendees to interact with her. Her energy was infectious and she presented in such a way that she was not talking at the group but rather inviting the group to go on a journey to what is possible when they take control of their schedule and lives. A great speaker and we would recommend her to anyone.

Organization, time management, project planning and productivity are skills that have been organically weaved into Sandra’s life. It began with influences from her dad’s organization in his workshop and her mom’s project planning for events.

After graduating college with a degree in business, Sandra worked in field sales for two Fortune 500 companies with territories that covered the five boroughs of New York and Western PA. Sandra continued working part-time after her children were born as a professional trade show coordinator.

Sandra’s life experience as a mom and volunteer for multiple organizations from Garden Club to Girl Scouts has shaped her skills in planning, preparation, focus, goal setting and scheduling. Twenty plus years later, she still serves on several boards in her community and church.

She is a board-certified professional organizer, productivity specialist, active member and past president of the Pittsburgh Chapter of NAPO.   She is an affiliate member of the Pittsburgh chapter of the National Speaker’s Association.

Sandra’s book, ‘Ask the Organizer’ is an Amazon best seller. The book is thoughtfully designed to be an easy read with it’s Q&A format that covers all topics time management, organization and productivity for the home, office and life. Sandra has also made contributions to various print articles as a productivity and organization subject matter expert.

Sandra has taken all that experience coupled with 10 years as the owner and principal organizer of Organization Lane to audiences with provocative presentations that motivate and inspire positive change. She also consults and encourages individuals to meet their goals while staying connected to their own self-preservation.

Sandra is married and the mother of two adult children.
