Elaine Fernando, Owner

I earned my degree in Economics and Finance from Columbia University. I spent 25 years in Wall Street’s international investment banking firms. In the chaotic arena of high finance and running a household of four I was able to hone my personal and professional organizational skills. I absolutely loved it! In my job, I travelled a lot and worked in a team environment and I listened carefully to my clients’ needs. Planning, executing, organizing and maintaining were also skills needed to maintain and grow these relationships. Because of my innate organizational skills, a friend approached me about setting up my own business. Since I love working on finding creative solutions to problems, I decided to start my own business. Located in Central New Jersey, Organized Transitions LLC® specializes in organizing homes, businesses and estates; as well as worldwide move management.

I have a wonderful and supportive husband and 2 lovely daughters. My 22 year old daughter lives with us in Fanwood. And my 35 year old daughter, her husband and my grandchildren live in Bradenton, FL and Charleston, SC. In our spare time, my husband and I do volunteer work. I also love to read and travel…and yes, clean and organize my home.

As a Professional Organizer, I continue to enjoy working with clients to identify their needs, establish goals, implement action plans and execute these plans. This provides an economical and practical solution that will help my clients maintain the positive work that has already been done ultimately creating blissful living that my clients are seeking.

I will give you undivided personal attention, professional expertise and the highest quality service that you deserve.

As a single mom of a 7-year old girl and 1 year old boy, finding the time to keep everything organized can be nearly impossible at times. Working with Elaine was great! Elaine and my 7-year old worked together to reorganize her entire room. Elaine was kind and patient and actually got my daughter motivated to learn not only how to GET things organized, but had her learning how to KEEP things organized. She was also remarkably patient as she empowered my 7-year old to decide what she was going to keep, what she was going to donate and what just needed to be thrown away.

As an empty nester, downsizing can be difficult. One of my dilemmas was to figure out where I was going to place all my precious photo albums in my new smaller home. Elaine was highly recommended to me by a friend, who is also a professional organizer. She is so helpful in consolidating my photo albums, over 20 in total, since high school! With many photos and pages, notwithstanding the years, it was a great way to preserve my photo memories and consolidate them into smaller storage space. All my photos are now in an external hard drive and Elaine carefully placed all the photos that were stuck in albums into an archival quality legacy box for storage and preservation. Tedious work, but Elaine doesn’t mind. In fact, she enjoyed seeing my life unfold in photos and was a little sad when the project came to a close. She is trustworthy, meticulous, and professional and I highly recommend her for organizing your life’s memories and papers!
