I’m Sarah Tetlow, Professional Organizer and Productivity Coach, and Owner of Simply Organized Sarah (SOS), LLC. Thank you for visiting my page.
I’m Here to Help You.
You are probably here because you are in need of some organizing and decluttering help, you want to find out if I am a good fit for you, and maybe find out a little more about me. You came to the right page. You can also visit my FAQ page where I answer some common questions that clients and potential clients might have. Maybe one of your questions will end up (anonymously) on that page and I’ll treat you to a coffee!
I’d love the opportunity to work with you. I welcome you to Contact me to find out even more about how I can help you turn your home into something you look forward to arriving at instead of an overwhelming sensation at the end of a long work day. I work alongside you while talking, listening to music, or just quietly focusing on the task at hand. No matter your preferred method, I am able to effectively cull down your belongings to a much more manageable space.
I have the experience doing it not just with clients, but for my own family in our own chaos and I understand that situations occur that can bring us back to old habits – it happens to all of us. My focus is not just on getting you organized, but finding that perfect system that will maintain itself longer (with help from you and the members of your family) so that it continues to calm you when you kick off your shoes (and bra) in the evening. Let me help you…simply.
A Little About Who I am.
I am a mom to two wonderful little boys, Keegan (b. 2013) and Grayson (b. 2015), and the wife to their daddy, my wonderful husband, Andy. I was born and raised in Martinez on Reliez Valley Road. I grew up in a household where my dad ran a successful small business out of our home and my mom handled his bookkeeping. My mom was also very organized working a full-time job and coordinating that with my and my sister’s school and ice skating schedules (I grew up a precision ice skater). In 2001, I moved to Santa Barbara where I met my husband and we lived there for eleven years. In 2012 we returned to Martinez and then in 2015, we moved to Pleasant Hill. We absolutely love Pleasant Hill and have enjoyed embracing the people, community, and this town altogether.
My B.A. is in Law & Society and immediately after graduating from UC Santa Barbara (Go Gauchos!), I went back to school and obtained my paralegal certificate. I began my career as a paralegal in 2005. The move to the bay area was essentially to grow in that career. I began working for a law firm in San Francisco in 2012 as a litigation paralegal. I loved my work and delivering final products to the attorneys, old and young, that was met with praise on how detailed and organized the analysis was. In 2016, I was asked to change careers and fill the vacant legal marketing / business development coordinator position, which I have been doing ever since.
But a void was left after I switched roles and I decided to pursue what I missed about my prior career and what I love the most: organizing. Organization, decluttering, purging, analysis of items, culling, and downsizing are all things I have always been naturally drawn to. I have always been organized and live a very structured lifestyle personally and for my boys.
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you. Even though I am an organized person, I recognize that this is not something that comes natural to everyone. Working with me will guarantee a gentle atmosphere and a coach who is patient while you learn and grow.
I am a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO), the local chapter of NAPO (NAPO-SFBA), the international Legal Marketing Association (LMA), and the Pleasant Hill Chamber of Commerce.
