  Tori Ford

Tori was born in Lewisville, Texas, then moved to Tyler, Texas in 2002. Growing up, her dad owned a tool business and she would often tag along with him during the summer, instilling in her an understanding of responsibility and a strong work ethic. One of Tori’s proudest moments was graduating with honors from the University of Texas at Tyler with her Bachelor of Science degree in Human Resource Development and a minor in Business Administration. It was the culmination of hard work and laid the foundation for her work style and ability to manage family and multiple jobs.
 

With the birth of her daughter, Tori made a decision to stay at home where she developed ways to maximize her small spaces, then purged and sold unused items. Selling unwanted family items has become a hobby now, and in fact, Tori fully funded a trip for her family to Walt Disney World with this skill. What a wonderful trait for an organizer to have when working with clients ready to declutter and benefit by earning a few dollars at the same time.

Tori enjoys organizing kids rooms, playrooms, and small spaces. She says, "there is great satisfaction in maximizing a small space and creating function that is greater than expected." She also enjoys shopping for organization products on a budget. Tori understands that some clients make a big personal and financial sacrifice to hire a Professional Organizer, so it is very important to her to get the most out of their budget.

Clients who meet Tori will immediately sense her gifts of patience and caring. She is smart, hardworking, a perfectionist, and a methodical planner and scheduler. She works well with those who need a little extra attention when they are faced with overwhelming organizational dilemmas. Others describe Tori as loyal and dedicated to her family and work, and able to speak to anyone even about uncomfortable issues. Tori says, “Our clients can be so vulnerable and sometimes be at their breaking point. It brings me joy to help them see a complete transformation of their space.”

Tori is also a Get Organized! Client Manager and assists our clients and Professional Organizers with scheduling, invoicing, and daily tasks. She loves office work and organization, so she feels like she is "living her dream" being able to do both!.

In her spare time, Tori loves being outdoors with her family, going to Texas Rangers' games with her husband, trying new recipes, baking with her daughter, and browsing Pinterest for fun projects. She enjoys seasonal décor and continuing to find ways to make their house a home.

After undergoing 4 major surgeries, she is in full remission and enjoying life once more.

Josie and her husband have a 10 year old daughter who is active in competitive cheer and modeling. She and her husband took up photography when they saw a need for publicity shots for their daughter, and became quite skilled at capturing her individually and in group events.

  Benita Swan

She has a flare for decorating and interior design. Benita likes to use what the client has, but is happy to shop with the client or for the client, helping them select products with the right style and function. She is skilled at making floral arrangements, especially working with fresh flowers, garlands, and wreaths. Her love for arrangements benefits her clients especially during the Christmas season where she was born to decorate. Not only can she light and decorate stunning Christmas trees, but using one of her biggest assets, her 6’1” height, a step stool or ladder is oftentimes not necessary. She laughs at this quality and claims it saves lots of time on decorating and organizing jobs.

Benita began her life in Alabama, but has become a Texan with great knowledge of her community and school district. She played softball in Junior College and finished her education with a degree in Medical Technology from Mississippi State University, graduating cum laude. Benita worked in a clinical laboratory for several years until motherhood called. After taking several years off, she returned to work part time providing health screenings to pre-school and school aged children throughout DFW.
