Meredith Spray, CPO®
I like to be organized in my own life, to create calm, beautiful spaces. Knowing that I can make a difference in someone’s quality of life while doing something I love adds real value to the work I do.
Formerly, as an aesthetician, I helped people feel good about themselves. Organizing isn’t all that different, except it is even more personal. It requires a tremendous amount of trust for people to let you into their home. I have so much compassion and respect for my clients. When we work together, we aren’t just organizing things. I help empower people to feel better about themselves and their space.
I know from personal experience that asking for support can be hard, but I’ve learned that it is completely worth it. Fear can hold you back from doing a lot of the things you want to do, but it is a lot more painful to live with regrets than face the fear. I believe in living in the present and having faith that you’ll be able to handle anything that comes your way.
What I most enjoy is styling—whether it is personal appearance, like clothes, accessories, and closets, or adding that designer touch, the little details that give a space its own signature. I believe in quality over quantity. It’s fun to help people decide what expresses their own unique style and create a system that is going to work for them.
I’m a graduate of the University of Alabama and an avid Crimson Tide fan. I’m also a music lover and enjoy spending time with my husband and toy poodles. I’m a member of the Junior League of Richmond where I serve as a New Member Advisor and I’m also the Membership Director for the National Association of Professional Organizers, Richmond chapter.
My favorite organizing product is clear over-the-door shoe organizers. I love using them for bathrooms, home offices, children’s rooms, really anywhere, because you can see everything and it’s a great way to contain small, loose items or in a category by itself.
