Lisbeth “Lis” McKinley, Certified Professional Organizer®

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

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

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

Since then, Lis and her expert crew, have organized literally hundreds of her clients 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 small fraction of Professional Organizers nationwide who have demonstrated through extensive experience and examination their knowledge of the principles and practices of the industry.

Lis is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers  (NAPO) and the National Association for the Remodeling Industry (NARI).

As a recognized public speaker on personal productivity, organizing and well-being, Lis has delivered her informative presentations to real estate professionals, small business organizations, senior care specialists and social service groups throughout the San Francisco/Bay Area.

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.
