Jill arriving for workPioneer Professional Organizer, Washington, DC-based Jill Lawrence, CPO-CD®, started her business, Jill-of-all-Trades way back in January of 1996 – a time when most people had not heard of the organizing profession.


Nine years later, in April of 2005, Jill Lawrence became the first Certified Professional Organizer in Chronic Disorganization in Washington, DC (CPO-CD®).  The CPO-CD® is a registered trademark of the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD) – an international non-profit educational association. 


Jill-of-all-Trades has a Basic Business License and a Home Occupation Permit to legally operate the business.  The Washington, DC government requires all contractors (even those from Maryland or Virginia) who work with clients in the District of Columbia to be licensed as a protection for consumers.

Jill speaking Experienced

With more than 13 years of learning and then teaching other organizers through NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers) and the ICD, Jill is an expert with the Credentials, Testimonials and the Media coverage to back it up.


If you enjoy storytelling, then the Photo Diary of an Organizee will be a section for you to enjoy.  You can read Rosellen’s first person account of her experiences as she documents her Marathon Blitz working with Jill.  Professional photos that were taken for a magazine shoot bring her story vividly to life.

On Jill's Process:

"She arrives with tables, folders, collapsible trash “thing” and a myriad of organizing tools, like a whirlwind (she does LOVE colorful outfits) and with a constant stream of energy attacks disorganization like a miracle drug attacks cancer.”

On Jill's Quality of Services:

“As you know, Jill, I have worked with many organizers from Virginia and Maryland. By far you are the “best of the best” I have ever worked with. I think you have an incredible ‘sure fire system' that can make any outrageous situation become manageable.”
