Meet the Organizer

I’m Sharon Lowenheim, founder of Organizing Goddess, Inc.  I’m the only Certified Professional Organizer® in New York City specializing in apartments and small spaces.

I became a Professional Organizer in 2006 after 25 years of working for three of the world’s largest corporations (Mobil, Philip Morris, and Pfizer).  I started my corporate career just as personal computers were entering the workplace, so I was perfectly poised to observe, over time, the continual influx of “time-saving tools” and, paradoxically,  the resulting downgrade in personal productivity.

On the home front, I’ve spent a lifetime developing techniques for living happily and comfortably in small spaces.  I’m proud to be a native New Yorker: born in Brooklyn, raised in Queens, and living in Manhattan for most of my adult life. I’ve never lived in a house – only in apartments – and I’ve never owned a car!

So now you understand the “New York attitude” part of my tag line, but what about the “Ivy League polish” part?  I graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics, and I did my graduate work at the University of Pennsylvania, where I got an MBA from the Wharton School and a Masters degree in Computer Science.

I’ve been a proud member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO) ever since I started my business.  I’m very active in the New York chapter, NAPO-NY, and I served for five years on the NAPO-NY board, including two years as Chapter President.  I’m also a member of the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD), which is another source of excellent education for organizing professionals.

In 2011, I passed an exam to earn the distinguished designation of Certified Professional Organizer®.  Yay!  Only 10% of Professional Organizers in New York City have the CPO® designation, so I’m pretty proud of that.

I live on the Upper East Side of Manhattan with my husband and daughter, who is away at college most of the year.  When I’m not running my business, I perform and direct with an Off-Off-Broadway theatre group called the St. Jean’s Players.
