Meet Kathrin

I bet my house is the worst you’ve ever seen. I am so overwhelmed! Will you make me throw everything away?

If I had a nickel for every time I hear those words I’d fill Scrooge McDuck’s money bin. It’s a great privilege to be invited into a space that someone might be downright embarrassed about, and I don’t take that responsibility lightly. I am not here to pass judgment. I’m here to help you reach your goals, from an organized sock drawer to a whole-house purge. But I can only help you if you let me in.

My passion for simplifying lives runs deep. Born and raised in Germany, I came to the US in the early nineties on an exclusive University scholarship for up-and-coming female scientists. I liked it here so much that I decided to stay, and graduated with a Master’s degree in Molecular Biology and an MBA from the State University of New York at Albany. My career path arced from laboratory bench to corporate office, where I was responsible for leading a team that kept employee information for a Fortune 500 company clutter-free, organized and up to date.

But why deal with data when you can be right there with people, help them manage their belongings, and enjoy the tales that flow along? Much more fun, and so much more satisfying! So, in 2015 I founded FreeYourSpace, LLC, focusing on releasing overwhelmed clients from the dead weight of accumulated possessions that are long past their expiration date. From seniors moving into a retirement community to children liquidating a parent’s estate, my clients trust in my guidance, professionalism and hands-on expertise, and know that a weight will literally be lifted off their shoulders. And no, I won’t make you part with anything you really want to keep.

I want you to be 100% comfortable with me before moving forward. When you are ready we can schedule a FREE one-hour onsite consultation to make sure all your questions are answered.
