What my happy clients are saying ......


1. ”Initially we felt insecure about changes in our home and home office, but Ellie inspired us to rise above small worries and approach change with practical solutions and optimism. Thank you, Ellie, for helping us to make our home and home office clutter-free, organized and harmonious! We love it!” Maggie and Steve, Los Gatos

2. "We hired Chef Ellie as our personal chef five years ago and can't imagine our lives without her gourmet, nourishing amazingly beautiful and delicious foods. She is a pleasure to work with and is always willing to cater our events even on short notice. We absolutely love her and highly recommend her." Sue & Michael, Saratoga

3. Your “Hazelnut Lavender Pesto is absolutely heavenly! The hint of lavender is divine- even transcendent. I felt transported to another place and time, like being in a Monet painting! What a gift you have! Thanks for sharing it Ellie!” Cheryl, La Selva Beach

4. “Ellie helped me to declutter and organize my office. It was a total mess. The result has been very rewarding. I am now more focused on my job and actually enjoy working in my home office, instead of wasting time and getting frustrated.” Steve, Santa Cruz

5. "Your Declutter Your Life workshop was very inspiring. Most of all it motivated me to get out of "overwhelm" mode to continue this unpleasant project that needs to be finished.  I came home and started with a fresh approach and am working on it a little each day." Joanna, Palo Alto
