About Kathy Andio
Kathy is a former event planner who decided to explore and pursue her passion for helping others. In 1994, she completed a 7-week bicycle trip across the U.S. that gave her plenty of time to think about the direction she wanted to take in life.
Upon arriving back home to Florida, she picked up the book "The Artist’s Way", which changed her life forever. After completing the book, she felt inspired to attain her Masters in Adult Education, one of her heartfelt goals, at Florida Atlantic University (FAU). The degree provided her with the foundation to begin teaching classes based on the book at Palm Beach State College in 1996.
In 2004, after surviving a scary and unexpected bout with cancer, Kathy found herself stuck and unable to move forward. It was then, upon facing her depression, that she became aware that the mounds of clutter in her home and her tendency for procrastination were blocking her from having the fulfilling and joyful life that she wanted.
After immersing herself in de-cluttering research and strategies, Kathy was able to clear away her piles and free herself from the destructive cycle of clutter. Slowly, as she dug herself out of the chaos, she became aware of the relationship between clutter and stifled creativity. Once removing the clutter, her mind became free and clear, and creativity flourished. Utilizing her creativity, and her passion for organizing and empowering others, Kathy developed Let Clutter Go in 2008.
As a reformed clutterer, Kathy understands the challenges and the embarrassment that comes with a cluttered life, and identifies with the feeling of helplessness around this debilitating issue that caused her, among other things, to not invite anyone to her home for many years and to spend countless hours organizing and re-organizing piles of stuff.
Kathy was born and raised in Michigan, and achieved her B.A. in Liberal Arts from Central Michigan University. She relocated to Florida in 1977. In addition to her Master’s in Adult Education, Kathy also holds a Master’s of Education from FAU in Elementary Education and has completed many credits towards her Certified Addictions Professional (CAP) designation.
By attending one of Kathy’s classes, her accountability group, or using her expertise as professional organizer, you will finally learn how to take control of your clutter, and create the empowered and joyful life that you desire!
