Last Chapter Meeting - Hi-Lights

 Elizabeth Strauss is Co-owner and founding member of All Organized, a company that specializes in helping people bring order to their homes.  In many cases this is in preparation for down-sizing.  She began her quest to help people “tidy up” when she was in the third grade and that passion for being organized has never faded.

Elizabeth graduated in 2009 with a Bachelors of Science from Sam Houston State University, and is constantly learning and growing in the business/entrepreneur fields of study.  She is President of a local BNI (Business Networking International) Chapter that has been very impactful on her business. 

 When not helping someone get organized, Elizabeth, a National Park enthusiast, enjoys hiking and exploring the different parks with her husband Troy. She also loves every dog. 

 The life of every party, she truly shines at wedding receptions on the dance floor.  Please plan to come and enjoy a program of learning how we might more easily let go of the unneeded items that crept into all of our lives.  You may view Elizabeth's program here.
