Gail_Leslie-09 Linked InLeslie Hatch Gail, M. Ed., left-handed Professional Organizer of Declare Order Professional Organizing, has always had a penchant for legal pads.  And making lists!

Six years ago (after viewing episodes of A&E’s Hoarders), Leslie outlined and began a Middle Grade Realistic Fiction novel from the point of view of a tween living in a hoarded home.  She learned she could not sit still long enough to write a novel and began instead to pursue certification with the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD).  Soon after, she was called to participate with other Chicago-area certified professional organizers on a new episode of  A&E’s Hoarders.  The episode (Beverly/Megan #47) aired August 1st, 2011.  While some organizers prefer NOT to work with spider eggs and mouse droppings, Leslie appreciated the opportunity to strap on a mask and dig in.

What else…?

A certified Band Geek,  Leslie marched bells with the drumline in her college marching band.  Her coolest job in college was  Operations Supervisor for Six Flags Great America.  Her first REAL job was Customer Service Representative for Wonderlic Personnel Test, Inc.  At that time, her Comprehensive Personality Profile indicated she had a personality similar to that of a successful School Superintendent or Flight Attendant.  Leslie has yet to attempt either of these professions.  Stay tuned…
