About Terri

Professional Organizing Specialist

terri-closs-home-organizer

Terri has always had a soft spot for the generation that came before her.  This love was instilled in her by her first best friend, her great-grandfather.

Honoring that love, she worked for 9+ years at Macomb Family Services as their Support Care Coordinator. In this capacity, she arranged in-home low-to-no-cost services for indigent seniors in Northern Macomb County. In 2009 she began a 4 ½ year job working for Home Helpers and Direct Link, an in-home, non-medical home care company, as their Field Supervisor.

Aside from her great-grandfather’s influence, she was also influenced by her own generation, the one that loved rock ‘n roll, bell bottoms, and had the attitude of changing the world through public service.  To that end, she volunteered for 10 years as the Membership Coordinator for the Senior Coordinating Aging Network (SCAN II).  She has also served for 6 years on the Board of Directors for the Greater Romeo-Washington Chamber of Commerce even serving one year as its president.  And, she volunteered several years as a Committee Member for the American Cancer Society’s Romeo Relay For Life.

Terri has always had a knack for organizing her own living space along with giving tips to friends and family on how to organize their own home.  In 2013 she decided to change careers and work for herself.  Not wanting to totally stop working with her elders, Terri combined her vocation (working with seniors) with her avocation (organizing) and created As You Wish Organizing, LLC.

Terri’s other interests include education and travel.  She graduated from Mott Community College with two Associates in Applied Science degrees, has received her Eldercare Specialist Certificate from Macomb Community College and obtained the designation of Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) from the Society of Certified Senior Advisors.  She continues to tutor American Sign Language to students at Macomb Community College.  And her love of travel has taken her to nine different countries on four different continents.
