My name is Lia Brady. I am a professional organizer, lover of all things green, mother, and wife.
Even as a small child, I’ve always had an intense passion for decluttered space, logical furniture layouts and helping friends and family thrive in a well-organized environment. Redesigning my godmother’s home was one of my favorite things to do at the age of 11.
After graduating high school, I enrolled in Business Management courses and joined the corporate world as a bank teller. Starting from the ground floor, I worked my way to the file room where I sorted, categorized, labeled and decluttered thousands of customer documents. My little nook was nestled among the manila folders and I loved it.
Two years later, I changed careers and found my home at Alfa Insurance. To no surprise, I organized our file system within the first year. My work space was neat and tidy and the office stayed in tip top shape. Organizing methods I’d developed over the years helped us run like a well-oiled machine. Within three year, with the help of our amazing team, the office ranked 2nd place in the district, coming from 15th.
Still, there was something missing. I wasn’t sure where I was headed, but I was full of passion, energy and a desire to get things done!
After four years in the insurance field (and many lessons learned), I decided to pursue something a little different and found myself at the Birmingham News writing the obituaries for the local paper. Within two years, I reorganized the department, eliminated the need for a second employee, redesigned the submission website and created their training handbook.
Thinking that maybe business wasn’t my niche, I went back to school to study psychology. Two and a half years and a few (okay, maybe more than a few) thousand dollars later, I started noticing a trend: I somehow ALWAYS came back to organizing. That was my passion! It’s what excited me and what I loved to do for others. It’s my way of giving back that gives me something greater in return.
So, I started a business and here I am in one of the greatest cities in Alabama doing what I LOVE.
I am the proud owner of OWL, LLC out of Birmingham, AL where I live with my husband, young daughter, and cat.
