After dipping my toes into the water as a chapter volunteer, I am happy to join the NAPO-NNJ Board as its Secretary!  I joined the chapter in 2016 after opening my business, Legacy Estate Organizing, LLC.  I serve as a financial partner to executors administering their loved one’s estate — let no asset go uncollected!  The attention to detail required by my job lends itself to the position of Secretary, and I sincerely hope that my particular niche of organizing adds to NAPO’s wider circle of outstanding organizing and productivity professionals.

Director of Administration

Diane Thomson, Thomson Blueprints for Living, LLC

(973) 534-7974  |

I am an “old-timer”. I have been in business since 2003, initially as Creative Organizing, LLC, however in 2016 I rebranded my business to Thomson Blueprints for Living, LLC to reflect all the changes it has gone through over the years. I have served prior as the Director of Professional Development & Programs for 2 terms (2008-2010) and as the Director-at-Large for 2 terms (2011-2013). As Director-at-Large, I lead an ad hoc committee which took the board’s job descriptions under review and rewrote them in the format they are today. I missed the close comradeship with my colleagues, so I am back on the board as the Director of Administration, a role that returns me to the tasks of maintaining the chapters operations documents and history. Someone has to do it!

Director of Membership

Jessica Kennedy, JOY (Jessica Organizes You)

(201) 303-9857  | 

It is with a sense of pride that I serve on the board as Director of Membership.  This is yet another opportunity for me to get a more in-depth understanding of NAPO-NNJ, as well as NAPO National.  I look forward to building relationships with my fellow board mates and all of the chapter members. Let JOY In!
