Lia Brady is the owner and organizing consultant at OWL, lover of all things green, mother, and wife.
Even as a small child, she has always had an intense passion for decluttered space, logical furniture layouts and helping friends and family thrive in a well-organized environment. Redesigning her godmother’s home was one of her favorite things to do at the age of 11.
After graduating high school, she enrolled in Business Management courses and joined the corporate world as a bank teller. Starting from the ground floor, she worked her way to the file room where she sorted, categorized, labeled and decluttered thousands of customer documents. Her little nook was nestled among the manila folders and she loved it.
Two years later, she changed careers and found home at Alfa Insurance. To no surprise, she organized our file system within the first year. Her work space was neat and tidy and the office stayed in tip top shape. Organizing methods she’d developed over the years helped the office run like a well-oiled machine. Within three year, with the help of her amazing team, the office ranked 2nd place in the district, coming from 15th.
Still, there was something missing. She wasn’t sure where she was headed, but was full of passion, energy and a desire to get things done!
After four years in the insurance field (and many lessons learned), she decided to pursue something a little different and found herself at the Birmingham News writing the obituaries for the local paper. Within two years, she 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, she went back to school to study psychology. Two and a half years and a few (okay, maybe more than a few) thousand dollars later, she started noticing a trend: she somehow ALWAYS came back to organizing. That was her passion! It’s what excited her and what she loved to do for others. It’s her way of giving back that gives her something greater in return.
So, she started a business in one of the greatest cities in Alabama doing what she LOVES.
Lia is the proud owner of OWL, LLC out of Birmingham, AL where she lives with her husband, young daughter, cat and dog.
Mrs. Heidi is one of our amazing pro organizers! She was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama and received a Bachelors in Business from the UAB. Her most amazing experience to date was designing and organizing for Red Mountain Design under the direction of Dikes Culp. Over the past 19 years, Heidi has been involved in organizing homes with the owner of Open Spaces. This experience brought Heidi in connection with Lia and the wonderful opportunity to work for OWL! We love her kind heart and ability to see the big picture. She’s married and momma to a little girl and they live in Birmingham, AL.
Lyndsi, the southern belle, joined the OWL team in 2018 as a pro organizer. She was a nanny for 10+ years and finally decided to put aside her kid-rearing ways to join the pro organizing world. While keeping the kiddos, she would always find herself organizing and fixing things around her client’s homes, so joining the OWL team just seemed like the perfect fit! In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends at their home in Odenville, AL.
The lovely Brenda holds the title of pro organizer on the OWL team! Being the organized gal that she is, she started the office of Dr. Yanosky when it first opened. She worked there for several years before deciding to help out in the family business. She is the wife to Brandon and the mother of 3 little ones. They attend Church of the Highlands and regularly participate in outreach activities. Together, they own Valleydale Tax Prep and work for OWL during their off seasons. Together, her and her family live in Hoover, AL.
Brandon is the man with the plan. One of OWL’s pro organizers and a joint owner of Valleydale Tax Prep with his wife Brenda. As a team member during their company’s off season, he uses his business management skills to transform the homes of OWL clients. We love his passion for mission trips and his heart for other people. Brandon and his wife share 3 children and live in Hoover, AL.
Sweet Susan (Suzy Q) is OWL’s fun and spunky weekly blogger! She grew up in Gardendale and is a graduate from Troy University with a Bachelors in Social Work. Being an avid writer for most of her life, it only made sense for her to grab a seat on the OWL team and let her passions run free! She is now a working mom, with four children. She and her husband, Justin, have been married for 11 years where they live in Hayden, AL.
