I am so happy you are hear! If you have come to this page to find out a little more about me, let me tell you that I am a mom of two from sunny Southern California that loves to blog about by passions.
I have a degree in Finance and me my husband when we were in college. After college, I worked in business consulting and operations management as a productivity manager. It was a wonderful time in my life and I learned a lot about streamlining and process management. I participated in analyzing and evaluating systems using data collection, observation studies and industrial engineering programs.
Then I had children and luckily, I was able to leave the full time corporate world to raise them. When my kids got older, I started this blog as a way to share organizing, planning and productivity tips for busy people. I think it is important to remember that life is not just about rushing through tasks, it’s about making the most of your time and striving to live a balanced and meaningful life.
Over time, Organized Island since has evolved to include my other passions. I am a self-proclaimed foodie and have loved cooking and baking since I was in middle school. I took my first European trip in high school with a choir group and was bitten by the travel bug. I have traveled to dozens of countries and met wonderful people while creating lasting memories.
Currently on this blog, I share simple and quick recipes, (some that I have been making since I was in high school), travel planning tips, entertaining ideas and of course, organizing tips. My hope is that these recipes and tips are a resource to help others make the most of their time.
I also share some Southern California events and dining venues that I feel are worth your time. I cannot tell you how many people ask me for suggestions on where to dine, because I do enjoy spending time with friends and family at dining venues and festivals in my leisure time.
I believe that we are happier and lead less stressful lives when we are organized and productive. So in my perfect world, I live on an “organized island”. That’s also where my tagline “Staying organized on my island of life” comes from. I am so happy you stopped by today and hope you visit often. Some of my readers favorite posts on the Island are these (click on the photo to go to the post).
