Ask the Experts Panel - CEU-eligible

Denise Allan, Simplify Experts 

Denise’s two “loves” are organizing and making clients’ home lives easier. She founded Simplify Experts in order to live the mantra, “Do what you love,” and feels lucky that as a professional organizer, she gets to do that every single day. Her dedication created one of the largest, most recognized and credentialed home organizing teams in the Pacific Northwest.

Sue Ive, Organize to Optimize

A native Seattlelite, Certified Professional Organizer (CPO®) Sue Ive has always had a knack for keeping offices organized and running efficiently. Little did she know that volunteering in her elementary school office for fun as a kid would lead to a 25+ year career with a commercial and industrial general contractor, starting as a file clerk and ending as the Executive Administrator and Secretary/Treasurer of the Corporate Board. (Or, as Rollie Hunt, owner of the firm used to say, "... Sue's the one that really runs this place.").

Laura Leist, Eliminate Chaos 

Since launching Eliminate Chaos in 2000, Laura Leist has walked her own talk about getting more done to allow “More Time for Life®.”  A poster child for getting much accomplished, this self-described overachiever and award-winning entrepreneur has grown what was once a one-woman show into a thriving business. She has also written nine books, including: Eliminate Chaos: The 10-Step Process to Organize Your Home and Life (Sasquatch Books 2006) Eliminate the Chaos at Work: 25 Techniques to Increase Productivity (Wiley 2011) Increase Your Productivity Using Microsoft Outlook (2010 and 2013 versions).

Debbie Rosemont, Simply Placed 

My passion for helping people and understanding the thought processes behind their habits and actions began years ago with a degree in Psychology. This education helped develop my ability to effectively listen to people in order to assess their wants and needs.
