Elaine Fernando, Founder and CEO

Elaine Fernando, Owner of Organized Transitions LLC

Having earned her degree in Economics and a Masters in Finance from Columbia University, Elaine spent 25 years on Wall Street working for international investment banking firms. Traversing the chaotic arena of high finance, travelling extensively for work and running a household of 4, she was able to hone personal and professional organizational skills and absolutely loved it! Elaine is also well versed in planning and executing projects in both a team environment and one-to-one; all the while listening carefully to clients’ needs to both grow and maintain relationships.

Fast forward to deciding on a career change! While discussing how her past vocation would benefit a future venture, a friend suggested pursuing professional organization. Since she loves working with others and finding creative solutions to problems, Elaine jumped at the chance, and Organized Transitions LLC® was born! It is a NJ based company that specializes in organizing homes, businesses and estates; as well as national and worldwide move management.

Now, she can still enjoy travel when working with clients to identify their needs, establish goals, and implement action plans. This provides the ultimate framework for economical and practical solutions that help maintain the positive work results clients seek to accomplish and best of all find … BLISSFUL LIVING!

 

Our Team at Organized Transitions LLC®

Eileen Bergman, Associate Director & Senior Specialist and Don Bergman, Senior Specialist

Eileen and Don Bergman

Enter the dynamic duo – Eileen & Don Bergman! Following a successful career in the staffing and payroll industry earning her many accolades, Eileen found that her life’s experiences of helping family members downsize and reading an article about a Professional Organizer in NYC made for a natural career transition. Eileen works hands-on with clients calmly offering sound advice along with a plethora of expertise and certifications to reclaim overcrowded and visually distracting spaces.

Don’s career in banking and finance has spanned over 40 years. Managing large department staff and leading a major computer conversion are just 2 of his industry triumphs. Fast forward to change, Don found himself jumping at the opportunity to work with Eileen, his wife of 45 years. What makes Don such a valued member of the OT® team? He instantly connects with clients infusing a sense of comfort and he couldn’t be more respectful of their home and possessions; all the while being one of the most conscientious, hard-working staff members OT® is thrilled to have.

Eileen and Don both tout being devoted spouses, proud parents and grandparents as their crowning achievement. Seeing them work in tandem and their dedication to “family first” makes that achievement obvious on every client project!
