A resume writer once described Mary Ann as “an individual with a passion for organization, research and problem solving.” Little did he know he was sowing the seeds of a future business venture.
Mary Ann Ferraguto is passionate about organization. By blending skills from several careers, and experience gained through interior design training, college and graduate work, and more than a dozen corporate moves, she brings resolution and order to the most chaotic of situations—and makes it look easy.
“A great outcome isn’t the result of a happy accident; there has to be a plan,” she says. Disciplined, organized, pragmatic and practical, she “simply gets it done.”
Although not a mental health professional, Mary Ann is empathetic to the stress and emotions tied to people’s homes, and vested in each client’s possessions and their always-complicated lives. She brings a level of professionalism and sophistication to every job that inevitably puts her clients at ease. As one client claimed, “She saved our sanity.”
Mary Ann is a native of the Connecticut shoreline, and a graduate of Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, CT. Moving to Virginia in 1979, she graduated from the Interior Design Program at Mount Vernon College (now part of George Washington University) in 1982. She is a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO).
For more than 30 years, Mary Ann has lived in Alexandria, VA. She is the mother of three sons, all graduates of Bishop Ireton High School. One son has since graduated from Hobart College in Geneva, NY, and the twins from Trinity College in Hartford, CT.
