Status obtained

SARANAC LAKE — Gloria Volz, owner of Adirondack Organized Solutions, has received Golden Circle status with the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO).

NAPO’s Golden Circle was formed in 1990 to recognize members who have attained an elevated level of experience. The Golden Circle acknowledges the expertise of members who have been engaged in the business of organizing for at least five years and have been a NAPO member for at least one year.

In addition, Volz has earned a Certificate of Study in Chronic Disorganization from the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD). The purpose of the ICD Study Series is to provide both basic and specialized topic education on issues, concepts and challenges presented by client work with the chronically disorganized.

To earn this certificate, Volz was required to take several classes which included boundaries, ethics and safety issues.

“Each person processes information differently, which truly makes each clients’ challenge unique. I’ve always been eager to gain information that will enhance my clients’ success. Earning this Certificate of Study in Chronic Disorganization demonstrates my commitment to that learning,” Volz said. “Each class I take reveals information that might be useful to each client whether they have had a life experience or transition that caused some disorganization or whether they have struggled most of their lives with disorganization.”

Adirondack Organized Solutions was created in 2007 and has helped numerous clients declutter, downsize and find solutions that work for them. Volz is a professional organizer and organizer coach who works with residential and business clients.
