WendyBuglio,CPO®

CEO & Certified Professional Organizer

A passionate productivity consultant, move manager and professional organizer, Wendy is
dedicated to helping clients clarify what’s most important and then developing strategies to get everything else out of the way. With her non-judgmental approach and calming energy (combined with a healthy dose of reality and a sense of humor), she works with clients to make decisions and take action to create desired change.
 
She applies this approach to physical objects in residential and office environments, but
also to intangible “clutter” – such as tasks, obligations and goals – helping to maximize her
clients’ productivity and organization. Some of her favorite clients have ADD – something
that Wendy sees as an asset to creative thinkers and entrepreneurs!
Wendy has 15 years of experience managing moves for clients, and has developed strong
relationships with moving companies, stagers, realtors, and other related services. 
Previously, Wendy spent ten years working in the fast-paced, deadline-driven world of
advertising and marketing, where she honed her time management, organization and
leadership skills.
 
She is active in the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals,
holding multiple volunteer positions at the national and local chapter level. Though she
believes firmly in giving back to the organizations that have shaped her career, she works
hard to practice what she preaches to clients - by taking on volunteer positions mindfully
and with a purpose. 

 

Wendy lives in Arlington, MA with her husband Mike (bookstore owner), and their 11-year-
old Pokemon and Minecraft enthuisast.  In her free time, she loves to entertain and plan
events, visit Downeast Maine, crush family members at board games, and is a competitive
fantasy football player. She is a repeat 39-mile walker for the Avon 39, The Walk to End
Breast Cancer.

Elizabeth Oakes

Professional Organizer

Elizabeth loves helping clients realize the potential of their space through decluttering, organizing, and rearranging. She knows first hand how our space impacts our well-being for better or worse, and approaches organizing sessions with a deep empathy of how overwhelming it can be.   

 

Through a career in event planning, Elizabeth found that the process of transforming a space translates into how we can think creatively about the way we use the space in our homes. She appreciates design and function, and enjoys repurposing furniture, decor, or rooms in a way that better suits the people living there. Before her organizing career, Elizabeth worked as an international Au Pair in Germany, and as a certified Zumba instructor. She and her husband moved to Somerville, MA from Chattanooga, TN in 2021.
