High Country Solutions provides professional organizing services to businesses and individuals in the Vail Valley and surrounding areas. We work with people who want help overcoming a temporary or life-long challenge with organizing, be it in their home, workspace or daily schedule. What strategy do you use to differentiate yourself from your competition? Our rates are very competitive and significantly lower than organizers working in Denver. We also work with individuals affected by ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and are highly sensitive to the emotional challenges and stress inherent in the moving and organizing processes.

We are completely confidential and have the resources to handle projects both large and small.

High Country Solutions grew out of a love of organizing and a desire to help people live lighter and get things done. It has been molded into a company that applies patience, empathy, and kindness to help individuals overcome their organizational challenges. As the business owner, I take regular classes through the National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization and have earned Certificates of Study in both Chronic Disorganization and ADHD. I also hold a bachelors degree in philosophy and am a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers.
