Vicki Norris's Bio:

Vicki Norris is a dynamic entrepreneur, speaker, television personality, and author who helps people live out their priorities. The founder and president of Restoring Order®, an organizing services and products company, Norris teaches others how to identify priorities and create sustainable change in personal organizational habits.

A visionary, Norris created a unique business model in the professional organizing industry, employing and training professional organizers in the Restoring Order® philosophy and methods.

Instead of simply showing clients how to organize their spaces, she coaches them to discover the causes of disorder that create clutter in the first place. Clients learn to change their thinking and behavior to embrace organization not as an activity, but as a lifestyle of self-management.

In her new book, Restoring Order™, Norris shares engaging and humorous insider stories from the frontlines of her work as a professional organizer. She demonstrates how disorganization degrades quality of life and inspires readers to embrace the benefits of order. Norris explains the causes of disorganization and draws the connection between order and freedom. Six key principles are presented to help readers understand and achieve orderly living. Readers gain practical and distinctive tactics to dig into their organizing projects and invest in their own long-term success. In Restoring Order™, readers won’t find clichéd organizing tips; they’ll gain liberation and motivation for better life management.

She delivers a monthly segment on AM Northwest, an ABC affiliate morning talk show in Portland, Oregon, and frequently serves as a guest expert on 1190 KEX Radio, a regional program airing in the Northwest. She is also a recurrent source and contributor to national lifestyle publications, including Better Homes & Gardens, Real Simple Magazine, Cooking Light, and Arthritis Today.

In 2004, Norris created her own line of stylish, functional products under the Restoring Order® brand. On the cutting edge of her growing industry, she is past president of the Oregon Chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers and in 2005, received the President’s Award for her work on the National Chapter Relations Committee. Transforming lives is also a personal commitment to Norris as she serves on the Board of Trustees of the Portland Rescue Mission and on the business council of Newberg Foursquare Church.

A member of the National Speakers Association, Norris inspires audiences at regional and national speaking engagements, such as the Women’s Council of Realtors, Boy Scouts of America, American Association of Cosmetology Schools, and American Society of Interior Designers.
