Schae Lewis, CPO®
Co-founder/Certified Professional Organizer
"Many of our clients come to us during a time of transition in their lives. Some have lost a loved one while others have recently gone through a divorce. During our first year in business, we had a client who was packing up to move in with her boyfriend. While you might expect that this was a happy time for her, she was clearly emotional about this new chapter in her life. As the tears started to flow down her cheek, Bahar and I looked at each other for one second and the next second I was hugging her and offering her comfort despite the fact we had just met. Since then, many tears have fallen and many hugs have been shared. And I have been designated as the Official Hugger!"

Bahar Partow, BA
"Organizing has been the most humbling and rewarding career I have ever had. It is so amazing to see the transformation in the lives of our clients every single day. All this aside, my favorite part is finding long lost objects that the client thought they lost despite years of searching. When I find things for clients, there is always a surprised look on their face and a spark in their eyes, followed by the words "I thought I lost this forever!" or "Do you know how long I have been looking for this?" It always brings such happiness to me. I feel like I am the Queen of the Lost and Found. One of my favorite stories is the time that I found a wedding ring that was lost for 10 years in the kitchen that client used every single day! Granted the ring did not fit anymore but the client was happy nonetheless."

Mackenzie Scott, CPO®
Certified Professional Organizer
"A client I will never forget was overwhelmed by items she collected just in case they could be put to good use. I didn't know her story, or how she came to need our help, but she and I just clicked. As we left with bags full of items she thought would help her gain control, I could tell that she was going to close the door, sit down in her new space and feel proud of herself. Organizing empowers people to do better for themselves and that is what makes this job so rewarding."
Mackenzie Scott, CPO® is a Certified Professional Organizer and has been a part of the Mission 2 Organize team since 2015.
