Meet Sandra

Watch Sandra in Action

I found her coming from an 'I've been there, girl' point of view. She lit my fire and got me wanting to organize my home.

Everyone really loved your workshop at our 2021 World Information Architecture Day Pittsburgh conference. Your strategies to combat procrastination are so universally helpful to us all. Your material was presented in a non-judgmental way which encourages us to be thoughtful about implementing positive changes. I highly recommend you as a speaker to groups of any kind. I saw how you tailored your prepared presentation to suit the needs of our conference attendees. We all left inspired.

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 related to 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 including Thrive Global.

Sandra has taken 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 coaches/consults and encourages individuals to meet their goals while staying connected to their own self-preservation.
