Janet Fishman, J.D., Professional Organizer & Daily Money Manager, fully understands the organizing needs of busy, overwhelmed, and overworked professionals who are juggling children, household, and career because she lived that life for over 25 years working in the legal field as a corporate trainer instructing attorneys how to do their legal research on a computer database and raising four children as a single mother (a singleton + triplets).
In 2011 when Janet left the corporate world and started her professional organizing business, she
became an expert in paper organizing. She has the patience to cull through boxes of old papers in the garage, tote bags in the closets, bins under the bed, unopened envelopes on the dining table, and forgotten documents in the file cabinets, eliminating unneeded papers and creating organized filing systems. As a daily money manager organizing financial papers for clients, she opens mail and writes checks for her clients making sure bills are paid on time and verifying that charges on bank statements and credit card statements are legitimate, especially for seniors that have vision or cognition issues and are often scammed.
Janet was born in Flushing (Queens), New York, but her parents moved to the Los Angeles area when she was young. She was raised in Covina in the San Gabriel Valley, attending Mount San Antonio Junior College in Walnut (Associate Arts degree in Police Science) and Cal State Long Beach (Bachelors of Science degree in Criminal Justice and Sociology), and after graduating from Southwestern Law School with a Juris Doctorate degree, has lived in the San Fernando Valley for over 30 years. Janet is a member of NAPO-the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals, AADMM-the American Association of Daily Money Managers, and ICD-the Institute for Challenging Disorganization. Janet serves as the executive director and organizer for NAIFA-Los Angeles and for WIFS-Los Angeles.
