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.

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.

Sandra Lane was my favorite speaker. She had the perfect tone of voice and speed for her session and her pre-prepped handouts were very useful. She gave great information that I can use immediately.

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. After her children were born, Sandra continued working part-time 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 a 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 12+ years as the Owner and Principal Organizer of Organization Lane to audiences, including the highly respected TEDx stage, 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.
