Shortly after graduating from Ole Miss, Laura Ann moved to DC to work in the United States Senate. In the early 90s she transitioned to pouring herself into the fast-paced world of raising three children, running a small business, and volunteering.
She is a founding member of the first Virginia Chapter of National Charity League, Inc., a mother-daughter philanthropic organization, where she served for eight years in roles including Vice President and Grade Level Advisor. She still continues to serve with the organization as a trainer and coach on the National Leadership Development Team.
Throughout that time, Laura Ann served family members, her children’s schools, her church, and her friends by encouraging peace and organization in the midst of each season, no matter what type of chaos ensued.
More recently, she has focused on helping her mother, who has downsized from a home to a condo and then into an assisted living facility, following the death of Laura Ann’s beloved father in 2016. Her southern mother opined that she could not have done all this moving without her, “Honey, you could probably get PAID to do this?!” So, with her mom more settled and her three children grown, she decided to do just that. Her kindhearted demeanor and gentile southern spirit has been a great addition to the Organizing Maniacs team.
Laura Ann believes in a personal approach toward the restoration of spaces. She specializes in packing, unpacking, and decluttering. That can include everything from playroom toys, to clothing, to business and personal papers.
Laura Ann and her husband have been married for 29 years and are enjoying a clean empty-nester house. In her free time, she enjoys audio books, art museums, flower arranging, bicycle tours, and American chocolate.
