New NEAT City | Naples
NM :: Why do you want to run NEAT in your city?
SD :: I enjoy finding creative ways to make spaces more functional.. Everyone benefits from living in a NEAT environment. There’s no insignificant space in a house. Living with useful items arranged in a smart way just makes everyday living simpler.
NM :: What did you do before NEAT?
SD :: The past 10 years I’ve been focused on raising my family and enjoying the little things in life. My 2 young boys have kept us pretty busy! Prior to that, I was consumed within the fashion industry working at the acclaimed Marissa Collections in Naples.
NM :: What makes your city unique?
SD :: Naples is lucky to be filled with incredible philanthropists. We have a solid population of residents who generously give their time and resources to those less fortunate. Also, it's been historically named one of the healthiest and happiest places to live. If the food and shopping doesn’t make you smile, most certainly a day the beach with your toes in the sand will!
NM :: How long have you lived in your city?
SD :: I moved to Naples after college in 2005. It’s amazing how much this beautiful city has grown in the past 15 years!
NM :: What are your favorite places to shop in your city?
SD :: Peach Tree Design + Jet Thompson Interiors :: Home Design Stores
The Market “Home & Salvage” :: Home Decor, Accessories & Gifts
Hobby Lobby + Home Depot :: Home Projects
LuluLemon :: no need for explanation :-)
NM :: Show us a picture of your most organized space and tell us what it is.
PJ :: Kids Room (Bookshelf) ::
- Baskets are filled with wooden blocks + MangaTiles
- Work books and markers
- Reading books organized by color
NM :: What about your least organized space? What the heck happened?
SD :: Sadly, this is my current pantry. We had a wave of house guests visiting recently who added excess inventory to our normal supply. Time for a project!!!
NM :: What do you think is going to be your favorite part of running NEAT in your city?
SD :: Being more connected in the community with both clients and industry professionals. Taking already gorgeous homes and bringing life into unorganized spaces that perhaps not everyone sees, but will certainly make the daily grind more enjoyable and functional.
NM :: What can people expect when they hire you to organize their home?
SD :: A beautifully transformed and completed space! If you’ve been thinking about a little home makeover, I’m your girl! I take pride in my work and find joy in making others happy.
NM :: Do you have any hidden talents that we should know about?
SD :: Not sure about actual hidden talents, but I can drink a glass of wine and cook dinner at the same time!
Sounds like you'll fit right in! Congratulations on launching Naples. We’re so excited to have you join NEAT!
