Lisa S. Griffith spent over twenty years as a teacher in both public and private schools, specializing in music education for middle school and choral directing. In addition to her teaching and administrative duties, she created and implemented new curricula in several schools. For over ten years, she also served as a church music director and administrator, directing multiple performing groups, planning worship services and supervising worship staff and volunteers. As the mother of two children, her organizational abilities were tested and honed over the years both at home and on the job as she worked with students and adults of all ages to manage their spaces, stuff, events, and time. After years of being the go--‐to person to manage others’ projects and events, she decided to combine her teaching experience and her organizational skills in a new business. In 2008, Lisa founded The Organized Way, offering personalized organizing services to help people clear away the clutter and set up organizing systems in their homes and offices for a more productive, less stress--‐filled life. Her specialty is small business and home office organizing, as well as household paper management. She offers one--‐on--‐one coaching, workshops on both home and office organizing topics, and seminars for group settings. She particularly enjoys speaking to groups of all sizes and persuasions about the strategies and benefits of organization in the home and at work.
Lisa is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers, and is an active participant in the local New England chapter of NAPO, serving as administrator for the Programming Committee. She is also a member of the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD), which is an educational and training institute specializing in dealing with individuals with chronic disorganization issues.
