Leslie Hatch Gail, PhD, uses sensitivity, patience, and a dose of wit and whimsy to help families reduce stress and take back control. She recognizes her clients are the experts and ultimate authority in their own life processes and works with them to create organizing systems to meet their unique needs. A sensitive and gifted lifelong learner, Leslie values interpersonal relationships and solves problems using a strength-based approach.
Owner and founder of Declare Order Professional Organizing, Leslie was born to teach! Clients benefit from Leslie’s previous experience as an Early Childhood Special Education teacher and Before and After School Program Director. She organized students for learning and fun, while also coming up with systems to store toys and curriculum materials when not in use.
Leslie leads in-person and virtual programs for audiences interested in learning more about organizing and decluttering. She recently presented, “Shift Your Mindset: Tapping into Client Strengths” to professional colleagues at NAPO’s annual conference, “Educate. Elevate. Celebrate!” Leslie encouraged attendees to identify asset-based approaches for clients living with challenges that impact organization and productivity in activities of daily living.
