Wearing many hats is part of getting the job done!

MARIA SCHIED, OWNER & COO

CHIEF ORGANIZING OFFICER

We Love What We Do And So Will You!

In 2006, after almost 20 years as the Director of Human Resources at one of the top law firms in Washington, DC,   I left the cold winters and  hectic traffic, and moved to sunny Boca Raton, FL with my  12  year old daughter.  Working in the legal industry provided undeniable training to start my own business.  Hard work, and my sometimes tenacious attitude (some call it stubbornness) paved the way!

I grew up traveling the world as a "military brat" since my father was in the Air Force.  The constant moves (15 moves by the time I was 20 years old) not only gave me the exposure to various countries and cultures, but it prepared me to plan and execute lists and methods to simplify each move.  I had lists for each of my lists and knew exactly what was in each shoe box that I had "packed" months before each of our moves! "Start early end happy" is what I tend to live by.  Yep, I'm NOT a procrastinator!

 

I’ve been providing the community with incredible service for quite some time now, and have no plans of stopping anytime soon!  Great service begins and ends with an experienced, positive-minded and friendly professional.  Let me also mention I have a great sense of humor.  Life is too short and laughter is a great medicine!  As a trained member of NASMM (National Association of Senior Move Managers) and several other organizations I believe wholeheartedly the importance of not just being well qualified, but of loving what you do.  Understanding each client's needs, showing compassion (it's not a weakness!)  and going the extra mile is what it's all about!    I take a proactive approach and like to put out the fires before they even start!  I take GREAT pride that after each project I have developed a warm and caring friendship with each client and their families.

With a design background,  training/studies in Feng Shui  and Kon Mori one can only expect the end result of your project or move will no doubt be the best of ALL worlds.  The organization and arrangement of objects will provide solutions, peace and attract the beneficial influences of our surroundings.

Most of our projects are referrals from:

~Word of Mouth (Our clients LOVE what we do, and so do their friends!)

~NASMM (National Association of Senior Move Managers)

~Lawyers (handling of estate, digital inventory, moves, etc.)

~Realtors (staging, de-cluttering, moves, etc.)

~Therapists (they declutter and organize the clients minds and we declutter and organize their lives)!  

~Other organizers and members of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers)

In my spare time I enjoy quiet time at home, writing, cooking, long walks with the "Branch Manager" Ollie, and spending time with my family and friends.   I love to travel, dance, stay current with industry trends, and keep busy with local community events.  

I have been blessed with an extremely loyal, compassionate and hard working team.  They all care about the outcome of each project as much as I do!  This is what makes Bright Beginnings exceed in the services we provide! 

Providing a free no commitment consultation, unbeatable rates and incredible customer service to not only meet your needs, but also exceed your expectations is what you can expect!  Get in touch, call Bright Beginnings and  lets see  what we can do to get you started toward a brighter beginning in an organized home, office or with your move!

YOU ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS THE TEAM AROUND YOU

Blessed With The BEST!  Each team member brings unique features to each project.  We have students, designers, architects, event planners, home health specialists, artists, decorators, RN, and even a travel consultant all committed to creating the perfect setting for each client.

OLLIE
BRANCH MANAGER

Ollie was recused as a puppy in 2018.  He captured our hearts and reminds us every day that with enough determination nothing is too large to tackle!  There isn't a tree branch or palm frond that he won't attempt to pick-up and carry in his mouth!  For a little guy he manages to move some that are 5x his size!   So for his cuteness, determination and all the free kisses he gives it is only fitting that he deserves to be our "Branch" Manager!  

Having a Strong Support Team Is Vital
