Julia Schroeder

Founder and President
Start Here Organizing

On average, it takes 21 days to make a habit—and 21 days to break it. That’s why I am committed to giving my clients the tools they need to be successful long after their home or office gets professionally organized and made over. Organization tools are both physical (cool gadgets and inventions) and mental (mindset conditioning). Every client is different, each with their own relationships to physical objects big and small, from junk mail and car keys to cherished possessions and the TV remote.

My job is to listen first and learn all about what makes a client tick and how they move through their days. With that knowledge, I can teach, groom and coach, introducing tools to help my clients live the life they’ve always wanted, at home or at work. For most rooms in the house, I employ “zone methodology” where everything you need is within reach where you need it the most. This approach makes it easy to return items to their rightful place so you can easily find them next time.

Organization, for me, is instinctual. I didn’t go to school to learn organization techniques and my clients don’t need to become certified professional organizers to implement my tools with success. I honed my craft during my 30 years as an executive in the hospitality industry and a lifetime of keeping my own home on track.

I am committed to upcycling, recycling, selling, donating, or repurposing all of the things you don’t need. I am equally committed to giving clients tools that prevent them from buying new things they don’t need or won’t use.

Are we a good fit? Give me a call and we’ll see. I look forward to having an opportunity to work with you!


She has a great vision for esthetics and design as well as organizing to make sure the kitchen flows as we use it. She asks good questions to understand how we will use the kitchen to make sure it meets our needs. She’s very professional and punctual. She’s also fun to work and the best part is after a few weeks, we’ve maintained the systems she put in place because they fit our style. I can’t wait to work with her again on more projects around the house.

Our Commitment

Start Here Organizing is committed to recycling, upcycling and appropriately discarding items that no longer serve.

We have partners throughout the city who are ready, willing and grateful to receive the gently used discarded items.


We’ll take away what no longer belongs that very day.
We won’t leave you holding the bag/s.


I hired Julia to help my Mother out with a life transition and downsizing. She is very helpful, kind and understanding to my Mother and of the situation, she is also a joy to be around. We began downsizing even with the items were still in storage, and have since moved to the final location all with Julia’s help. She has given tons of great advice on furniture placement and purchasing ideas. I would recommend Julia to any of my friends for their organizing needs.
