Oh how I wish we could just sip coffee and chat. Until then, here's a bit about me... I'm Deb. Wife. Mom. And detail freak!
I've always had a penchant for pretty and an obsession with order. As a child, I loved to hang out in mom's pantry—putting "like with like" and giving everything a home. Thrilling right?
So nice to meet you!
Like most organizers, I landed here after a background in several different careers–all great prepping grounds for this unique work. My years assisting one of Seattle’s top wedding planners honed my attention to detail in making each event picture perfect. And my thirty-year career as a dental hygienist taught me compassion and non-judgement as I gently “cleared clutter” from patients’ mouths—while encouraging them toward improved health and self-confidence.
In 2015, I founded Details by Deb out of a desire to help stuck people get unstuck. There's nothing better than seeing clients' relief when we conquer their impossible project. And it truly makes no difference whether I'm working in a mansion or a dusty old garage. My joy comes from helping reclaim theirs!
I love that wedding planning, dentistry, and professional organizing share a common thread—client courage; to trust an outsider with vulnerable, precious things. I take this role seriously as we gently declutter the spaces that are simultaneously cluttering the mind. Each project is treated with intentional care, compassion, and confidentiality.
Details by Deb is a licensed and insured company, and a proud member of NAPO, the National Association of Productivity and Organizing. I continually take classes in home organizing, space design, eliminating excess, paper management, chronic disorganization, learning and thinking styles, minimalism, etc. I never tire of learning ways to transform houses into homes.
And speaking of home, that's where my CFO title (chief family organizer) has provided my most challenging and rewarding career. My husband Don cares for our community as a firefighter paramedic and patiently lets me volunteer him for everything under the sun. Our son Jake, an Air Force Reservist, and his sweet wife Emma recently moved back to the area. And our daughter Emma (how fun it is to have two daughters named Emma!) and her husband John are living the Army life—currently in Georgia. As we settle into empty nesting, we are enjoying the transition from parenting to friending our adult kids!
So now that my time's more my own, I'm ready to roll up my sleeves and help lighten your load.
Together, let's seek less—less inventory, less stress & less chaos. For the sake of more—more joy, more freedom, more time for your people, and abundant life. One rich in relationships and purpose. Not more stuff.
Cheers to getting on with the good life! deb
Working with Deb changed my world! As a short person I was constantly pulling dishes out over my head and nearly killing myself (physically & metaphorically.) I also had tons and tons of food in high shelves that I couldn't reach even with a stool. Something had to be done. Enter Deb. She assessed our needs and built mini ecosystems in our kitchen where things that only my 6 foot husband uses (the coffee station) all fit in one area and heavier/ awkward things like glassware are now in lower drawers for easier less dangerous access.
I felt heard and that Deb understood the root of my issues. She was invested in problem solving my unique issue not just tidying up a kitchen and making it look clean. She is very fabulous at what she does. I highly recommend her work as a problem solver and organizer. — Amber Trillo
