Allison Segreto, founder of Mission: Organization uses her professional skills to organize and decorate spaces and teaches the life altering process of “organization maintenance”.
Established in May 2002, Segreto’s business offers a full range of home staging, professional organizing, and interior decorating services. Her specialties include closets, garages, and home offices. Based in Putnam Valley, New York, Allison travels to clients mostly in Westchester, Putnam, and Dutchess counties.
A registered home improvement contractor with a BS in Behavioral Science from Iona College and an AAS from the Fashion Institute of Technology, Allison is duly certified to help clients cope with and complete the challenges of organizing their cluttered closets, garages, and other interiors. She is also a member of NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers), the premier national association dedicated to the field of organizing.
With an eye for decorating, Allison Segreto is able to meet the needs of people who require help organizing and de-cluttering their space and provide a fresh perspective and plan to create a more efficient, beautiful and stress-free living environment. Along with her personally approved team of contractors, Segreto oversees every project and works hard to live up to her client's cry for help: "Simplify, Organize, Stage."
According to Segreto, “My biggest challenges are convincing clients to part with their belongings, and working with them to scale down years of clutter. My customers’ biggest challenges include finding a starting point and following through with the work in order to reach their goal.”
But for every client, regardless of the size of the project, it is well worth the effort. Segreto says, “There is a tremendous satisfaction both my clients and I feel once the job is finished. It is like a breath of fresh air.”
Because Segreto is sensitive to the various needs and personalities of people who require her services, she presents new clients with one of three approaches in order to achieve their goals. “I can simply consult with them and they can follow through on their own, or I can do the whole job myself, or we can tackle the work together.”
Segreto prefers the last option because it allows the client to learn to process and maintain a clutter-free, beautiful environment. She also likes working side by side with the client because it is more interesting and personalized.
Segreto’s experiences over the years have revealed that organizing a space is more than storage deep. She recalls two recent successes which changed the lives and organization habits of clients and influenced other changes in their lives.
Segreto hopes to build her business to the point where she can maintain a staff of knowledgeable, caring, well trained people to help carry out her more basic/ routine tasks of running her business. “This will free up my time to be able to attend to spending more time with clients, as well as allowing me to have more free time to "de-stress" myself!”
