How We Met

I met Kathrin sometime ago at a networking function. She remembered me and came to my studio, Visual Concepts Photography, located in the Greater Annapolis area, for branding and headshot images for her marketing use. We spent an amazing afternoon creating fabulous photographs for marketing purposes. Kathrin is a no-nonsense kind of person, one you would want to hire to declutter your home. I was so taken with her and her business model that I am featuring her on my blog!

Kathrin Solves Your Problem

Too Much Stuff? No Worries.
“I bet my house is the worst you’ve ever seen.” “I am so overwhelmed!” “Will you make me throw everything away?” If Kathrin Shenk, Professional Organizer and owner of FreeYourSpace, LLC had a nickel for every time she’s heard those words she’d fill Scrooge McDuck’s money bin. “It’s a great privilege to be invited into a space that someone might be downright embarrassed about, and I don’t take that responsibility lightly” she says. “I am not there to pass judgment. I’m there to help you reach your goals, from an organized sock drawer to a whole-house purge. But I can only help you if you let me in.”

Kathrin’s Background

Kathrin’s passion for simplifying lives runs deep. Born and raised in Germany, she came to the US in the early nineties on an exclusive University scholarship for up-and-coming female scientists. She liked it here so much that she decided to stay. She graduated with a Master’s degree in Molecular Biology and an MBA from the State University of New York at Albany. Her career path arced from laboratory bench to corporate office, where she led a team that kept employee information for a Fortune 500 company clutter-free, organized and up to date.

The Start of Free Your Space

However, why deal with data when you can be right there with people, help them manage their belongings, and enjoy the tales that flow along? Much more fun, and so much more satisfying! So, in 2015 Kathrin founded FreeYourSpace, LLC, which focuses on releasing overwhelmed clients from the dead weight of accumulated possessions that are long past their “expiration date.” From seniors moving into a retirement community to children liquidating a parent’s estate, Kathrin’s clients trust in her guidance, professionalism and hands-on expertise, and know that a weight will literally be lifted off their shoulders. And no, she won’t make you part with anything you really want to keep.


Kathrin serves Maryland and Washington, DC, and offers a free meet and greet at your home. She can be reached at 301-233-3885 or Kathrin@FreeYourSpaceOrganizing.com. Her website is http://freeyourspaceorganizing.com or you can click here:
