Meet Debbie Bowie


Debbie Bowie is an engaging speaker, a highly effective Feng Shui practitioner, and a gets-things-done professional organizer. She established Simply Organized in 1998 to help people reduce stress and enhance their lives by improving the condition of the spaces in which they work and live. Debbie believes the condition of our living and work environments has a direct impact on what is happening in our lives.

Debbie has always been identified as the person on any team or in any office who could "get things done.” Her organizing skills served her well in work as an architectural historian first in Utah, then for the Division of Historic Landmarks in Virginia. She worked as a counselor in a residential addictions treatment center, then as a substance abuse prevention specialist in a school system in Richmond, Virginia, before establishing her organizing business.

Debbie’s formal training includes a B.A. in Art History from Randolph-Macon Woman’s College, an M.A. in Art History from the University of Utah, and an M.S. in Rehabilitation Counseling from Virginia Commonwealth University. She has also had training in Pyramid School Feng Shui, Black Hat Sect Feng Shui, and is a graduate of the Western School of Feng Shui™. In 2007, Debbie was one of an inaugural group of professional organizers to receive the designation of Certified Professional Organizer®.

One of Debbie’s passions is understanding relationships. To that end she completed certificate programs in the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and in William Glasser’s Reality Therapy Program. Her deep understanding of the nature of relationships equips her to give poignant presentations that often touch people personally and spur them to action. This understanding also enables her to facilitate highly effective Feng Shui and organizing consultations.

Debbie’s other passion is for dogs: She LOVES dogs. Her first official organizing job was for a doggy daycare where she not only organized systems of operation and established policies and procedures, but she had the pleasure of working directly with the dogs. She believes cats, dogs and other pets, are angels (some big, some small) who come into our lives to help handle life’s challenges. She has a particular soft spot for dogs because they love with utter devotion and remind us to keep play a high priority. To the right are Debbie's two beloved dogs, Jake the feisty "Terr(i)or" mix and Oz the Wiz. They keep Debbie smiling!

 

Testimonial

(The following testimonial is in response to a 40-minute speech given to interior design students at the University of West Virginia.)
I …. wanted to share that you were a tremendous influence on my students with your talk! When I went into campus on Sunday, I found two students in our studio resource room (where we keep all of our samples) cleaning up and organizing. They had been in all weekend working (there was LOTS to do!), and they told me that after your talk, they didn't want all of the negative energy caused by the clutter. They did a beautiful job, and I'm so proud of their work and thankful for your influence! You also influenced me in that I spent all Thursday cleaning my office piles and throwing paper away that had accumulated through the year. Thanks for all of your sharing - you DO make a terrific difference!
