About Laurie Neumann


As an organizing expert, certified personal photo organizer, and productivity specialist, I help women and small business owners free themselves from clutter and preserve what’s important. With a simple six-step process, my clients find relief and learn how to de-clutter and organize their space and work flow in a way that works for them.

I use my passion for organizing and productivity to help individuals conquer physical and digital clutter to achieve an organized work and home life. Using innovative organizing solutions, individuals are relieved of the psychic burden of clutter. By helping them organize their environment, clients experience less stress and more productive, peaceful lives.

For the chief memory officer of the family, I help organize, digitize, and preserve photos, videos, and documents so these treasures can be enjoyed now and for future generations.

Each client is treated as an individual in a confidential, non-judgmental manner. I develop solutions that will work for you and create order out of chaos, resulting in a simpler lifestyle and a calmer, more efficient environment.

National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO), Golden Circle Member

Before I founded The Innovative Organizer, LLC in 2011, I spent nearly two decades in engineering and manufacturing operations. During my corporate career, I developed my skills in analyzing situations and developing and implementing improvements to enhance productivity, improve quality, and reduce costs.

I hold a BS in Chemical Engineering and an MBA in Project Management.

Married for 28 years, I am mom to a son and daughter, both in college. I currently reside in Bartlett, Illinois in west suburban Chicago.
