Hi, I am Amy Neiman, M.A., the founder and CEO of a simplified life, llc. I combine a passion for an organized space, the love of problem solving, with energy and motivation to achieve our goal.
I truly believe that each of us has a different learning style and habits. Thus, our environment needs to be set up in a way that works best for our own needs. I work with you to customize your space, so you can be more productive and spend less time searching for what you’re looking for.
I was an undiagnosed ADHD child. (My official diagnosis happened when I was 28 during grad school.) I noticed early on when I had to study for a test I spent a great deal of time making sure my room was organized. I felt if my physical clutter was removed then I could clear some of the mental clutter and focus on studying. I operate better with less paperwork & clutter on my desk or in my workspace. My coping mechanism I realized for stress & anxiety was to organize. I instinctually incorporated this talent into my professional work environments.
I am most happy when I can help someone realize that they can be organized and enjoy their environment. It doesn’t need to be a difficult experience, and I’m here to assist. With a background in photography and photo editing, and an eye for space and design, I was that girl who always had her office & room organized and color-coded. I believe in labels and finding what you need at a moment’s notice. I know I can create a simple plan for your home and workspace to clear the clutter from your life. This includes organizing your time, space, paper, and possessions.
a simplified life was formed in 2012, after 15 years in the entertainment industry. Upon graduating Ithaca College in New York, I moved to Los Angeles, where I lived for 8 years. I worked as a producer and agent for professional photographers. Under the Universal Music umbrella, I coordinated photo shoots and managed financial details for the art departments as well as consulted with the creative department for Special Markets. In 2005, I received my Masters of Art in Psychology from Pepperdine University and started on a path to organizing spaces for friends, family, and you!
I am a contributor to the book, The Happy Law Practice: Expert Strategies to Build Business While Maintaining Peace of Mind. My chapter is titled, Maximize Productivity: Tips for Organizing Your Office.
I am a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), and active in the local New York Chapter (NAPO-NY). I adhere to their Code of Ethics.
