    Mary Bellofatto is the owner of Definitely Organized.  She established her professional-organizing company to provide clients with top-notch organizational, productivity, and move-management solutions for home and business.

    In the past, Mary juggled years of family and social schedules in conjunction with career experience in real estate, financial services, business administration, and retail.  This has enabled her to develop the skill sets necessary to help clients make lasting change, thus rewarding them by relieving stress and restoring calm and order in their home and work lives.

    Cena Block is the founder of Sane Spaces LLC and the creator of the first
    online productivity personality assessment, the Time & Space Style Inventory. Cena offers coaching, consulting & workshops for professionals. Her sweet spot is helping professionals with ADHD live more powerfully and have better, more consistent results. For nearly three decades, Cena developed her career and experience in Human and Organizational Performance.

    Cena helps private clients reclaim time and improve results through deepening their own awareness and creating flow in their lives. Flow comes from clearing the fog, setting up a flexible framework to focus and finish. Cena’s areas of expertise include career and self-development, time management, process improvement, management and employee skills, entrepreneurship, life-balance, team communication, supervisory skills, customer service, and leadership.

    Beatrix Goudey founded Let Us Organize You, LLC in 2005. She holds a BBA in Management, as well as an MBA in Marketing and Strategic Management. Beatrix was one of the first female vice presidents on Wall Street at the First Boston Corporation. She is a Professor of Management at the Lubin School of Business at PACE University, teaching at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

    Debra Levy is the founder of A Life That Fits, LLC, a full-service Professional Organizing, Re-Design, and Life Coaching company. She organizes and creates beautiful interiors for clients in central and northern New Jersey, and she coaches clients via phone anywhere in the world. Debra holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design, and she has worked as a residential and corporate interior designer in New Jersey, New York, and London.

    As a Golden Circle Member of NAPO, she continuously attends conferences, classes, and webinars on a variety of topics to help further her knowledge and to help her clients.  She is also the "product purveyor" for NNJ, for which she investigates and presents new organizing products, services, and technology.  She is the proud recipient of NNJ's "2015 Organizer of the Year" award. Debra has achieved accreditation as a Certified Organizer Coach through Coach Approach for Organizers.

    Katie Tracy is the owner of Simple Spaces. Katie's work largely focuses on addressing the mental and physical connections of clutter. She explores this connection in her work with her clients and advances this topic to other industries through a monthly regional webinar.

    Katie knows the challenges of balancing a family, business, career growth, and personal fulfillment. In addition to serving as the NNJ President in her seventh board term, Katie has her CPO and Residential Certificate, has twice been a speaker at the NAPO National conference, owns two registered trademarks, and has been known to send friendly, but firm, cease-and-desist letters.
