Organizing is truly Desirée’s passion. She opened the doors for business in 2000 while still a flight attendant with American Airlines. As she continued to fly part time, the business continued to grow. After 9 years of doing both jobs she realized it was time to turn in her wings, so she left the airline to focus all her energy on Organized Touch, LLC.
Making the choice to build her company to it's full potential was not a difficult decision and she knew in her heart this was what she was meant to do. Desirée loves to help others live a more peaceful life and she feels very blessed to have a team that exhibits the same passion as she does.
