Hi, I'm Terry Capehart. Organization In Bloom has been a dream of mine since 2009 when I first started working as a Professional Organizer. After only a few months, I knew I was meant to be in the home organization business. I launched Organization In Bloom in December of 2012 with the goal of making organizing fun and rewarding.
I am an active member of the National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals (NAPO), recently having completed a term as President of the St. Louis Chapter. I am a Certified FreedomFiler® Consultant, having completed their rigorous certification regimen with a high level of achievement. Before finding my passion in professional organizing, I worked for Monsanto Company for 29 and a half years providing service and support to the national sales force. I am a native St. Louisan, where I live with my husband of 38 years in our suburban home where we raised three children. We also have a family dog named Mozart, a weimaraner.
About that logo...
Daisies have been my favorite flower all my life so I knew my logo would include a daisy. What I didn’t know (until a dear friend pointed it out) was that the slang definition of the word daisy means “someone or something of first-rate quality: That new car is a daisy.”
Well, the someone is me and the something is professional organizing and both are of first-rate quality. Oh, and guess what I drive…a VW Beetle with daisy wheels! It was meant to be!!
