MMI #9

Since 1999, lifestyle management & productivity consultant, Madeleine DeNitto has offered her skills to people in three states and has earned a reputation for paying attention to meticulous details and holding much compassion for her clients. Starting as Studio96 Organizing in 1999, those in her profession were known as professional organizers, thus, she changed her business name to STRESSED.PRESSED.MESSED in 2004. In 2012, she started an additional business offering concierge services, which quickly became popular. Rather than continuing to run two separate businesses, it made sense to simplify the double paper work and advertising, so the decision to use the Garrison Concierge name for both businesses became official in January of 2015. Garrison Concierge now offers a wide range of minor concierge services to huge organizing projects.

In Madeleine’s long experience in the organizing industry, she has served countless clients— from those who have simple situations to those who have very special needs and overwhelming challenges. She has worked with clients having emotional or physical impairments, senior citizens with new or extended challenges as well as high profile executives and celebrities. She has nearly 200 hours of specialized psychology classes through ICD that are specific to the varied challenges of organizing the spaces, time and general lives of clients– case per case. Within the twenty years that Madeleine has worked as a professional organizer, fourteen of those years were as a member of NAPO. As of 2018, she has decided to leave her membership, as her business changed course. Please read her April 2018 blog link to learn about her reasoning.

As the proud mother of two successful adult children, she also holds a wealth of experience, skills and resources for helping clients with children. Before she entered this profession, she was a stay-at-home mother and performed with an opera company for ten years before shifting into becoming a published photographer. Her children are now ages 33 and 34 with the oldest, a working mother of two in corporate HR and the youngest, a US trial attorney working for the Department of Justice.

Being empty nesters and grandparents, Madeleine and her husband moved permanently to the Hudson Valley in 2010, where, after a ten year hiatus, Madeleine returned to performing in 2012, being cast in the Beggar’s Opera at The Philipstown Depot Theatre. Since 2012, she has also been a member of the St. Philip’s Episcopal Church Choir in Garrison and is a former member of the Philipstown Garden Club. In 2016, she founded The Brasiles Ensemble, a group of professional musicians who have grown popular in the region and recorded their first CD, as well as co-founding new vocal duo, The Mary PowellAs of late 2019, Madeleine also returned to visual arts on a more serious level with new projects currently in production.
