Theresa Carter founded OrganizeMe! Professionals to encourage and support people toward better productivity in their homes, offices, and places of business. Even though Theresa has always had keen eye to detail, she quickly realized that many did not. She has a vision that with the right tools and support anyone can take control and become organized and more productive.
Theresa, a native Baltimorean, grew up in a modest home, learning how to make the most of what she had. This allowed her to appreciate the comforts of simplicity. Since childhood she would regularly de-clutter and organize for her friends and family. This has given her a real sense of accomplishment and instant gratification.
For over 20 years she has worked in “Corporate America” and the Federal Government; 15 of those years she also volunteered her time organizing and de-cluttering homes for senior citizens. Throughout her career she has facilitated conferences, conducted training sessions, performed professional audits, served as staff director, implemented regulatory policy, and managed billion dollar contracts. She acquired a Project Management Professional (PMP) designation from the HHS University, which helps her maintain streamline processes and to stay on task. After “climbing the corporate ladder” and accomplishing most of her professional goals, she still felt there was something missing. She found that she enjoyed her volunteering job much better, and so she started OrganizeMe! Professionals, which has brought her and her clients much joy & happiness.
Theresa has corralled all of her business knowledge and experience and her personal de-cluttering and organization skills to do something she loves. Following the footsteps and training of the well-known Barbara Hemphill, who paved the way for productivity in the home and office for over 30 years; Theresa trained to be a Certified Productive Environment Specialist (CPES) through the Productive Environment Institute (PEI). She realized that it is never too late to enjoy working, and so she buckled down and learned what it takes to successfully teach people and organizations how to be and stay productive.
Just recently, Theresa was newly appointed as the Director of Marketing (DOM) for the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) Baltimore Chapter. With her knowledge, education and passion, Theresa and her team have been very successful in changing people’s lives one client at a time!

De’Ja Carter has a passion to work with people of all ages and background, sharing in the rewards of giving back to her community. For many years she has volunteered in the community teaching students on an array of topics, volunteering at her local hospital, and reaching out to senior citizens that need help with housework and other chores.
She is a very bright student attending college courses while attending her last years in high school. While working for OMP, De’Ja was recognized by a client for being very honest. While working De’Ja found a large sum of money. She quickly turned it into the client with no hesitation. The client was very impressed that she didn’t keep the money for herself. What a true testament of the quality of staff hired by OMP!
After the death of our father, we didn’t have the strength to prepare for the estate sale. We didn’t know where to start. We are so happy that OMP took that burden off of our shoulders. They went through and de cluttered and organized his things for the sale and it was a success! Thank you so much.” Sara P., Baltimore County, MD
