For years, Ilene was the “traveling organizer” for family and friends. Whether it was a relative moving to a new home or a friend in depths of disorganization, Ilene was the person they called. After becoming an empty nester, she realized that her passion for organization was more than a hobby, and she joined the Life Organized team.
Ilene began her career as a retail merchandising professional with expertise in buying and product development, working at Macy’s, Lerner New York, Imaginarium, and Toys R’Us. By combining her creativity, merchandising, and analytical skills, Ilene ensures the spaces she organizes are both stunning and efficient.
Ilene has a B.S. degree in Textile Marketing from the University of Maryland and an A.A.S. degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology.
In addition to her talent as a professional organizer, Ilene coordinates events, designs elaborate candy buffets, and creates unique themed gift baskets. She enjoys spending time with her husband, Stephen, and their family, traveling and attending Broadway shows, concerts, and operas.
