New NEAT City | Richmond
NM :: Why do you want to run NEAT in your city?
LK :: I have loved growing up in Richmond and being a part of the community. I want to share my passion for home organization and impact clients lives in a positive way. Home organization can be extremely therapeutic!
NM :: What did you do before NEAT?
LK :: I started off in finance for the first 3 years after college and then I have spent the last 10 years as a high school math teacher.
NM :: What makes your city unique?
LK :: I like to consider Richmond a “big little city.” It’s home to two major universities, has a thriving restaurant industry, big art scene, tons of outdoor activities/parks, and a rich history. They call the area “central Virginia” for a reason…you can travel 90 miles north to visit our nation’s capital, 90 miles east and you hit the Atlantic Ocean, and 90 miles west for scenic Blue Ridge Mountains.
NM :: How long have you lived in your city?
LK :: I was born and raised in Richmond! After living in DC and Atlanta for the first three years after graduating from Virginia Tech, I knew I wanted to return to my hometown.
NM :: What are your favorite places to eat in your city?
LK :: My family and I love to eat out! Richmond is full of amazing restaurants, but we have some favorites. Our go to breakfast/lunch spot is Westwood Pharmacy as we are here multiple times a week! Date nights are spent at Azzurro, Stellas, Portico, Buckheads, Beijing on Grove, and Mosaic. Other favorite places include Superstars, Shore Dog, and ZZQ.
NM :: Show us a picture of your most organized space and tell us what it is.
LK :: My basement/playroom has a place for everything and can be organized easily, but it doesn’t always look perfect when my kiddos don’t clean up when they are supposed to.
NM :: What about your least organized space? What the heck happened?
LK :: Older son’s closet! I need a system to store the clothes he has grown out of and I am saving for his little brother. It’s a mess and needs some love!
NM :: What do you think is going to be your favorite part of running NEAT in your city?
LK :: Getting to meet so many new faces in the community and partnering up with other local businesses and of course spending time to help others organize their spaces!
NM :: What can people expect when they hire you to organize their home?
LK :: A professional, friendly, excited, and (most importantly) organized person eager to make your spaces more efficient, structured, and aesthetically pleasing.
NM :: Do you have any hidden talents that we should know about?
LK :: I wouldn’t call it a hidden talent, but I always know what the upcoming weather is!
That's amazing - and definitely considered a talent in our book! Congratulations on launching Richmond. We’re so excited to have you join NEAT!
