My name is Wendy Webber and I’m a professional organizer, designer, and personal historian. Born and raised just outside of Philadelphia, I’ve lived in beautiful Lancaster County for the past 10 years with my husband and three growing boys, ages 12, 14 & 18.
Do you consider yourself sentimental?
I’ve always been a sap – even as a kid. I cried at long distance telephone commercials (remember those!) and at every wedding I ever saw on TV. Just hearing the music to Brian Song used to make me well up. Through the years I’ve saved old clothes, college papers, ticket stubs, kid’s artwork and hundreds of “artifacts” from every stage of life.
What’s your background?
The meaning of “things” and our relationship with them always fascinated me. I even earned my degree in Anthropology and Sociology from Lafayette College. I continued my education in everything from writing to cognitive science and psychology to graphic design!
Professionally, I’ve been organizing for over 25 years, mainly in the corporate sector, as a meeting planner, telethon producer, project manager, newsletter editor and an executive director of national and international trade associations.
Organization has been central in my home life too. Navigating through six moves, three children (born in three different states), and a few unexpected bumps along the way, I experienced, first-hand, the havoc that life changes can bring to a family. Being organized created a sense of well being and calm that helped us through those crazy times. It was then that I realized that I wanted to help others feel the same way.
What’s your favorite part of the work?
I love to help people organize their memories and simplify the sentimental “stuff” in their lives. As moms and caretakers of our family’s history, it’s so easy to get overwhelmed with all the photos, keepsakes, toys, music, books, holiday decorations and other remains of the day. As we move through different chapters of our life story – whether by choice or necessity – it can become really difficult to sift through a lifetime of memories. I love to provide ideas, resources and support to make these transitions easier. It is my goal to help you honor your past, make room for the future and most importantly, celebrate every day.
