Lisbeth “Lis” McKinley, Certified Professional Organizer (CPO®), Move Manager

It began one day in 2008 after a bottle of antiperspirant fell on her head.

Having just left her corporate job, Lis found herself needing to keep busy and accidentally discovered the power of getting organized in her own bathroom. (Click here to watch her tell her story).

What followed was the launching of LET’S MAKE ROOM in 2009.

Now a veteran organizer, Lis and her expert crew have organized literally hundreds of living, storage and work areas in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. (View examples of our work in the Gallery)

Lis earned her Board Certification as a professional organizer in 2011, a designation held by only a fraction of Professional Organizers nationwide and is a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals.

As a recognized public speaker on personal productivity, organizing and well-being, Lis has delivered her engaging and highly informative presentations for many groups including real estate professionals, small business organizations, senior care specialists,  social service groups and hundreds of individual homeowners throughout the San Francisco/Bay Area. (For more information about scheduling Lis to speak, call us at 510-846-1976.)

Trained as a marriage and family therapist, Lis holds a Master of Arts degree in clinical psychology from John F. Kennedy University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism from New York University.

Lis, a native of New York City, lives in Oakland, California with her husband, Mason, their three cats and a Chihuahua.
