About Our Guest, Angela Betancourt

Angela Betancourt is a professional home organizer. In January of 2014, after a 12-year career in marketing and event planning, Angela left the corporate world to become a Licensed Massage Therapist.

Around this same time, she read “The Joy of Less, A Minimalist Living Guide” by Francine Jay and was blown away by the philosophy of living with less and the freedom and peace that come with a minimalist lifestyle.

She began implementing the book’s recommendations and, much to her surprise, decluttering was actually fun – exhilarating even! Friends noticed the changes and soon she was getting requests for help with their homes.

Angela found so much joy in sharing what I learned that she began helping others experience the liberating joy of having a clutter-free, organized life.
