My name is Dawna Hall and I started Organize ME! in the summer of 2008 to help overwhelmed Maine homeowners clear their clutter and simplify their lives.
I have a B.A. in Graphic Design and have spent 15+ years working in print & sign design in and around Portland. While I love design, I didn’t love sitting behind a computer all day… so, I decided it was time to make the leap into something that I’ve always enjoyed — organizing.
For as long as I can remember, I have been highly organized and detail oriented. I enjoy decorating, space planning, problem solving and teaching others new skills. I love helping people tackle projects that seem overwhelming to them. To see the relief in someone when a room is organized or a filing system is set up is priceless.

I am a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), and I adhere to NAPO’s guiding principles of integrity, honesty, and confidentiality.
I also belong to the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD), which is devoted to exploring methods, techniques, approaches, and solutions that benefit chronically disorganized clients.
Locally, I’m a member of Portland’s Hoarding Task Force.
Angie MacDonald joined Organize ME! in January of 2015. She loves to help people feel less stressed, and that very often means helping them feel at home in their own space.
“I have much experience in the service industry, as well as retail. I always felt like I should be doing more, and wanted to put my skills to work in a more rewarding field. I wasn’t always so attentive to organization, but when I discovered the difference it makes, I embraced it, and wanted to share it with EVERYONE!
I love to reuse, repurpose, and recycle. I’m crafty and handy, but I’m always learning in this profession, and I so enjoy sharing the things I learn with others. It makes me so happy to give someone a suggestion that they never realized was an option. That little spark can make amazing things happen!”
