My name is Jackie Wakin and I am the founder and owner of Conquer Your Space.
I have always had a passion for organizing and feel I have been organizing practically my entire life. One of my childhood friends reminded me recently, that what she loved most about coming to my house to play was to look in my closet because it was always very neat and organized and all my clothes were facing the same direction. Yes, nothing has changed. I started organizing at a very early age……
I graduated from UTMB in Galveston , TX with a degree in Occupational Therapy. For 20 plus years prior to starting Conquer Your Space, I worked in the medical field, mostly in management. During those years, I did some organizing on the side as a hobby/small business, completely unaware that an organization for Professional Organizers (NAPO - National Association of Professional Organizers) existed.
There are several things that led me to start my own business. I was contemplating about the years to come and about what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. The answer was clear….to pursue my number one passion: organizing and to be my own boss. So this time, I googled “organizing opportunities” and found out there was indeed an organization for Professional Organizers (NAPO). I also found out that every major city has a chapter. I attended my first meeting of the NAPO-DFW Chapter, and as they say, the rest is history. I truly felt that day was “the first day of the rest of my life”.
I love and am very passionate about what I do and I have lots of fun doing it! My work is very personal in nature. It gives me tremendous joy to be able to help others and I find it personally gratifying when my clients see the finished product with that WOW look on their faces!
100% client satisfaction and high quality service are very important to me. I provide utmost confidentiality and support in a nonjudgmental and respectful manner.
I am a proud member of NAPO and served as Director of Administration for the NAPO-DFW Chapter Leadership Board 2011-2013.
