Tonia was born in Gillette, Wyoming and grew up in an extremely structured household with daily routines. This orderly lifestyle taught her to appreciate the beauty of order.

Characteristics of neatness, tidiness, order resulted in a successful career in the mortgage industry. Tonia’s career at Chase Manhattan flourished in both Michigan and Texas.

Development and maintenance of these relationships was critical and Tonia took great pride in succeeding. Others counted on her to be organized because she was handling so much detail. Tonia left her job with Chase Manhattan only after deciding to commit to her professional organizing career on a full-time basis.
That commitment resulted in a talent metamorphosis, which now flourishes in her professional organization career. Most importantly it has allowed her to turn her passion for helping others into a reality. Sorted Out, which opened in 2004, is on its way to the highest level.
