A bit about me & my journey

Becoming a professional organizer was an opportunity that was created for me, really!

Dan Loya, Professional Organizer

Spaces Transformed, established in 2011

It was created with the intention of empowering people to simplify their lives, and in the process be “transformed from the inside out.” In 2017, my business was relocated to New York City, fulfilling my life-long dream of living and working in a city many people consider to be the center of the world. Now with almost 15 years of formal organizing experience, I am honored to offer my organizational expertise to New Yorkers and others I work with around the country.

I have been on the Board of Directors for two chapters of NAPO (Philly & NY), and I'm currently transitioning to a national role as Co-Chair of the Education Advisory Committee, which develops and oversees all of the education NAPO offered to its members and to the public.

How did I become a Professional Organizer?

This is the most commonly asked question when people find out what I do for a living. There’s really no concise answer, but it’s a story that’s fun to tell. It all started in 2005 when I became a disenchanted art consultant at a blue-chip art gallery in Los Angeles. When I disclosed to my most devoted client that I was retiring from the art business (and stepping down as the associate director of the gallery), she proposed that I help her organize her home while I decide what career move to make next. Initially, I was noticeably taken aback, but she explained that since I had such an organized approach to working with my clients (by streamlining purchases, arranging home shows, procuring artwork at fine art auctions, etc.), I would likely have talent organizing functional spaces as well.
