Amy Carstensen, a San Diego based Professional Organizer, started her business “Organizing  with Amy” in 2013.  Previously, she’s taught high school Spanish, worked for the International Community Foundation and was the Founder and Executive Director of Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center. While Amy holds a Master’s degree from UCSD in International Relations, her true passion is helping people declutter their brains and their lives.  When she’s not donating kitchen items to Salvation Army or putting labels on bins, she’s home torturing her husband and two teenage boys reminding them that, “if you can’t find something… just start cleaning up!”
