Meet the Company
DMA Organizing was founded in 2002. We work to create functional spaces that people love to use. We believe there is a harmony that happens when a person’s home truly supports and matches the unique life or lives of the people who live there.
Our philosophy of living life by design, not default means we coach clients to make conscious choices about what they keep or don’t keep in their homes and reflect on how those decisions help them lead the life they want to be living. We believe the “stuff” in our lives is there for a purpose but ideally is there to make our life activities more easy, efficient, and enjoyable!
We create a safe, confidential, nonjudgmental partnership with clients. As members of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) we have access to extensive resources and ongoing training.
Meet the Founder, Dana Arkinzadeh
In 2001 I had an “aha” moment when I discovered the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO). One of the first things I thought was, “what a fun job!”
Shortly thereafter I launched DMA Organizing. Being a professional organizer allows me to use some of my strongest skills and experience: creative problem solving and personal communication. My love of organizing comes naturally to me and my techniques for organizing have evolved from years of practice in homes and businesses.
In college I studied psychology because I was intrigued by how people think and communicate. Out of college, I spent 10 years in the corporate world, working primarily as a trainer. My input was a vast array of people with varying personalities, learning styles and motivational levels. My output needed to be people who could successfully perform the skill set they were receiving training for.
To accomplish that, I mastered the ability to communicate with and motivate diverse personalities and learning styles. I learned how to transfer a skill set by translating the content into a language each individual could grasp and understand.
Because we all don’t “get it” at the same rate, I know the importance of being supportive and guiding people to achieve successes that have eluded them. I know how to motivate people and get them past being stuck. My clients feel great about breaking through to a higher level of satisfaction and success and I feel great about helping set them up to live the life they envision.
