Susan UngerSusan Unger firmly believes that, “We shouldn’t be stressed by our stuff.” She launched ClutterSOS in 2005, after realizing that as a professional organizer, she could spend her days doing what she’s always loved the most — sharing her passion for organizing and making true connections with people.


“The most rewarding part of my job is watching the stress leave my clients as they take back control of their space. I receive great satisfaction when we’ve given everything its proper place,” she says. Her clients describe her as “the Energizer Bunny,” who works tirelessly to transform her clients’ homes into spaces of order and tranquility. She works in a respectful, positive, non-judgmental manner that puts her clients immediately at ease.


Susan is a Certified Professional Organizer®. She maintains an active membership in the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), of which she is a member of the elite Golden Circle of veteran organizers. She is also a proud member of NAPO-WDC and the Institute for Chronic Disorganization (ICD), for which she holds the title “Chronic Disorganization Specialist.” She also holds a BSBA degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Business Administration.


In her spare time, Susan enjoys spending time with her husband, Paul, and her daughter, Samantha. She enjoys cooking and entertaining. She is also a world traveler, recently traveling to Thailand and throughout Europe.
