Hello! I’m Traci Olivares, Certified Productive Environment Specialist (CPES) and professional organizer in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. I’ve been helping people get organized since 2007.
Simplifying a complex environment is far from simple. My early training as a pilot taught me the value of following procedures and staying calm in chaotic conditions. It also increased my patience for teaching others new skills in highly stressful situation. Even before that, moving around the world as the daughter of a military officer gave me solid experience in deciding which possessions were important and packing them so I could find them later.
When I became a mom, I wanted to start a business where I could control my own schedule. After spending time with other young mothers, I noticed that most of them were disorganized, stressed out, and overwhelmed. I started Totally Organized so I could coach others to make choices that would have a positive impact on their lives by decreasing physical and mental clutter. Over a decade later, I have spent thousands of hours in clients’ home and offices.
My continued association with Barbara Hemphill’s Productive Environment Institute through the CPES master’s program keeps me growing professionally. I am always learning even more and better ways to meet the challenges of simplifying spaces for peace and productivity.
I work with clients all over the DFW Metroplex and call McKinney, Texas home. When I’m not out making the world more productive and organized, you can find me spending time with my husband and our three children.
