Instructor Lauren Williams | Seattle Central College - Continuing Education

Lauren's Background

Lauren Williams is a Professional Organizer and Golden Circle member of the National Association of Professional Organizers who specializes in home, home office, and small office organization.

She uses her expertise to help people use their space more effectively, including how to file their paperwork, teach them that it's OK to let go of their great-grandmother's china that they don't like, or design storage spaces for a plethora of shoes.

She's a native New Yorker who came to this career via three cross-country moves, being a stay-at-home parent, managing donor records for small non-profits, holding a variety of Office Manager positions, a divorce -- and, basically, Life.

Lauren received her BA from Bryn Mawr college and her MBA from Baruch College of the City University of New York. She moved to the Seattle area in 2009, and she's grown to love Washington as much as her native state.

Lauren's Teaching Style & Approach

How do you present materials to your students?

My materials are a combination of prized show-and-tell items discovered at Goodwill, research I've conducted to answer particular questions, or simply my suggestions for appropriate books and other tools.

How do you work with and interact with your students?

I want my students to raise their hands at any point with questions. I don't want them to hesitate for a second to offer their own ideas.

What kind of classroom dynamic do you promote?

I love a very informal environment. If I can't get my students to laugh, I'm disappointed.
