About Judith Kolberg
Judith Kolberg pioneered the field of organizing in 1989 when it was still an obscure profession. As she worked with more and more clients, she found many had trouble implementing traditional organizing techniques, and founded the National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization, now the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD). She is credited with launching an entire field of professional organizing specifically dedicated to addressing the needs of individuals who are challenged by chronic disorganization. Her contribution to the field prompted the ICD to create the Judith Kolberg Award (and she is not even dead yet!)
Twenty years later, her business FileHeads continues to specialize with chronically disorganized people in the business environment. Respected by her peers for her innovative organizing ideas and an ability to forecast organizing trends, Judith is the recipient of the industry’s highest honors including the prestigious Founder’s Award from the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) and the Highlighter Award from the NSGCD/ICD. Her contribution to the inaugural organizers’ certification program earned her the President’s Award, and she is a former president of the GA chapter of NAPO.
Kolberg has authored 6 books and numerous special reports on organizing. Select books are recommended reading by the Board of Certification for Professional Organizers or required by select ICD certification/certificate programs. In all, her books have sold a quarter of million copies in the US, England, Korea, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, and Japan. She currently lives in Atlanta, GA where she takes good care of her Mom, continues to see clients, writes, publishes, and blogs.
