Sara Getzkin, Professional Organizer

Sara is the owner of Hands On Organizing Services based in Toluca Lake, California. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she has a B.A. in Sociology from the University of California at Santa Barbara. For more than a decade, Sara was gainfully employed by the entertainment industry where she worked on numerous award-winning feature films, television and animation projects. When organizing her files became more interesting than some of the movies being produced, it was only natural for her to organize full-time. She has been organizing for as long as she can remember, but officially began her professional organizing business in 2003.

Her business focus is primarily residential organizing with an emphasis on Senior Citizens, estate planning, financial organizing, and the organization of small, home-based businesses. Sara is a Golden Circle member of NAPO (National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals) and serves as the NAPO-LA chapter photographer. Often referred to by fellow organizers as the resident “recycling queen,” Sara received NAPO-LA’s 2010 GREEN AWARD for the most eco-friendly organizing service. She is currently a co-chair of NAPO National’s ECO-SIG (Environmentally Conscious Organizers Special Interest Group). Sara has been featured in several episodes of TLC’s Hoarding: Buried Alive and her organizing tips have been featured in The Daily News, Senior Planet, and USA Today Weekend among others.
