Karen Brown

Owner & Chief Organizing Officer

I have loved bringing order to life ever since I can remember. After receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and Communications from the University of Texas at Austin, I spent nearly a decade working in non-profit and corporate communications. At each stop, I quickly earned a reputation for my ability to identify problem areas, develop and streamline processes; and create sustainable organization systems.  I carried that skill through into extensive volunteer work, as well as numerous freelance communications projects. And, I was always the one that family and friends called for advice when they moved, had a life change, or just got tired of their chaotic homes.   

In 2013, after years of being told ‘You should start a business doing this!’, I took the leap and formed Your Ordered Life, LLC. I have been a Professional member of the National Association of Productivity & Organizing Professionals (NAPO®) since forming my business. In 2019, I earned the Golden Circle designation, which recognizes members who have reached a level of experience in the field. 

I believe that it is important to always be up to date on trends and research relevant to the industry. To that end, I regularly read anything and everything that relates to organizing and productivity. I take several classes each year thru NAPO® University and the Institute for Challenging Disorganization. Organizing and productivity are my business and I want to make sure, when I work with a client, that I have the knowledge and expertise to make a difference in their life. 

I have volunteered with the NAPOCares Committee, preparing press releases and communications to promote community service initiatives. Previously, I served two years on the local Chapter (NAPO-DFW) Board of Directors, as Director of Corporate Associate Members and as Director of Marketing.
