Johanna managed to create a peaceful feeling every single day.

There's nothing more calm-inducing than coming into a tidy, peaceful, and welcoming home. No matter what happened during the rest of the day, a clean space with dinner on the table is always a refuge and relief. Somehow, even with all the chaos out in the world, Johanna managed to create a peaceful organized feeling every single day.

She has so many different skills and talents.

Johanna came to us as a content expert and started as a project manager in the field, but when I needed a Chief of Staff to help me start a new department she was my natural choice because she has so many different skills and talents. She just pulls them out as if I had a Swiss Army knife in my pocket. Absolutely invaluable support!

She had designed all these systems and even developed a database of UC Berkeley graduate students who were available to teach small classes for homeschooling kids. She really had the process nailed and I was so grateful for her help!

She made sure everything was done on time and on budget.

When we sold our house there were so many moving parts that we really needed help to get and stay organized. As a busy executive I didn't have time to manage this process, so Johanna worked with the agents and vendors to make sure everything was done on time and on budget. I'm not sure what I would have done without her – perhaps never gotten my house on the market!

Full Package: Personal Chief of staff

Do you and your family need a full-time Chief of Staff to bridge across ALL personal and professional affairs?

I provide strategic-level support to ultra-complex families that need right-hand partnership across all facets of personal and professional life. If your family system includes an active business or philanthropy,  I can provide management of your executive office, while ensuring that your family's priorities are well-managed across home/property, family, education, health, finances, and business affairs.

This would be a special circumstance and mutual opportunity to build a unique relationship that spans across an exceptionally broad set of needs. It is a full-time thought partnership with a trusted advisor.

If you think that might be your family and you need a higher degree wrap-around support, let's talk about what's possible.

She helps me structure things so I get more clarity on how to proceed.

I admire and appreciate Johanna for her sharp mind and her enormous versatility and knowledge. For almost any topic I bring up to her, she has great advice, asks very valuable questions and often helps me structure things so I get more clarity on how to proceed. Johanna is a huge asset to anyone with personal and professional challenges.
