sara pedersen, owner & organizer extraordinaire
Since 2000, Sara Pedersen has offered hands-on organizing assistance for countless Twin Cities residents. She helps them organize, simplify, and discover time to do the things they love. She also coaches new and prospective professional organizers. In addition, her creative side shines when she transform a space with her one-day decorating services.
Sara has a B.A. in journalism from the University of Minnesota. She worked for Carlson Companies and the University of Minnesota in print production, project management, and marketing and communications before founding Time to Organize.
She lives in Shoreview, Minnesota, with her husband and two teenage kids. She also makes time to snuggle her tabby cat, Mulligan, and Lhasa-Poo, Wilson. When she’s not working with clients, she enjoys finding new and creative ways to organize her home! She also loves to dig in the garden, take evening walks, eat chocolate, and explore the North Shore of Minnesota.
She brings a unique mixture of compassion, humor, creativity, and common-sense to each client session. She focuses on not only creating useful spaces, but transferring organizing skills to her clients so they can maintain everything after she leaves. And because she also loves to also create beautiful spaces, she adds a little “oh la la” where ever she can. For those not needing organizing help but just some room makeover ideas, her one-day decorating services are the perfect way to showcase her creativity and flair for design.
Sara is an active member of the National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals (NAPO). She has held the positions of Communications & Technology Director, Secretary, Newsletter Editor, Public Relations Director, and Electronic Communications Coordinator for NAPO Minnesota.
