“I am honored to win this award,” said Seibert. “I wake up every morning excited about what I do; being recognized by my peers and others is icing on the cake! I look forward to continuing to show people how to repurpose and properly donate or dispose of items they are prepared to just throw out in the course of de-cluttering and getting their lives and homes organized.”
The evening began on the red carpet where guests mingled and were interviewed by KTTV Fox 11 Los Angeles news anchor Carlos Amezcua about their best organizing tips and tools.

The festive and elegant Gala Industry Exchange offered an opportunity for finalists and exhibitors to interact in a conscious, deliberate, yet social environment. We were thrilled at the positive response of exhibitors and finalists who came together in a spirit of community and mutual support in their recognition that the organizing industry has room for everyone.”
“It is my goal that we will stop giving this award because all professional organizers are green and using sustainable practices in their businesses,” Seibert added.
