A Little more About Dee

Professional Organizer & Productivity Specialist

Dee Selby is a professional organizer and productivity specialist with experience in life coaching, teaching, writing, editing, graphic design, marketing, and public relations. Her entrepreneurial spirit has led her to create Dee’s Downsize and Declutter, a business focused on helping people have more peaceful and productive living and working environments.

 

Several years ago, she was asked what she would do if she could do anything. if she could do anything what would it be? Yes, she said she wanted to help people clean out their closets, organize their kitchen cabinets, handle latent filing and positively deal with clutter! Turns out her life coaching and teaching experience comes in handy in her new career/venture. You see, when people have to deal with their stuff, it can be quite emotional.

 

It is difficult to decide what to do with your grandmother’s jewelry, moms china, kids art projects, books and clothes that no longer fit. The attachment most of us have to our stuff is quite strong. Dee has an uncanny way of helping others let go or make important decisions about their stuff. She makes letting go easier by taking the items and giving them a new home, primarily to non-profit organizations in the local area, including animal shelters, homeless ministries, transitional housing, and outreach centers.

 

Dee has many decluttering “mantras” – like “keep your best and your favorite.” This frame of mind makes reducing your collection of 100 frogs much easier, because you can keep one or two of them. Another piece of wisdom relates to why people want to hold on to special pieces from those who have died. She reminds us that the memories of those people live in our hearts, not in the objects they have left behind. “Keep like things together” is her advice for staying organized – it’s so simple (but not always easy) when you see the simplicity.

 

Dee is able to envision a bedroom, workspace, closet, garage, or bathroom as a functional space, neatly organized and leaves clients with a renewed sense of relief, serenity and purpose. Through this process, people are finally able to set and meet goals.

 

Dee has also written a book, Rethinking Roles, Goals and Obligations which gives a new perspective on the daunting, yet rewarding, roles, goals and obligations a woman experiences as she journeys through life.

 

Dee has a degree in Journalism/News Communication from the University of Oklahoma and is a certified Lay Counselor and Life Coach. She has three grown children, one son-in-law and three cats. Dee lives in Haskell, OK and her roles include, but are not limited to, mom, daughter, sister, aunt, great aunt, friend and confidante.
