Meet Moreen

Portrait of Moreen TorpyAn organizing enthusiast, Moreen began her career at an early age. Her first memory of this is when she collected all of her mother’s shoes that had been kicked off in the dining room, carefully placing them against a wall in pairs. Then hung a sign above them reading “Shoes for Sale”.

Then in her teens, Moreen chaired the creation of a parade float for her youth group. She’s still amazed how she pulled this off at that point in her life! So many details—finding a flatbed truck, decorations, work crews, people to sit on the float and more. Then all the Thank-you letters that she sent afterward.

Moreen founded De-Clutter Coach in 2004, beginning her studies in the organizing profession that same year.
