Living Well – Professional Organizer
Christine Shanklin, otherwise known as “Chicka”, The Organization Queen,
graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas in 1991 with a Bachelors degree in Fashion Merchandising and a minor in General Business. After graduating from college she worked in Buying, Merchandising, and Sales for several companies around the Dallas Metroplex for 15 years. The last sales job she had was for 8 years. She sold to department stores across the country and was traveling constantly. She has been all over the United States, from California to New York and even India for a week for a textile show; what a great experience that was!
Chicka got into organizing because she says, “I have always been one of the most organized people I have ever met. All of my friends and family have been telling me forever that I should start my own organizing business. So I started out slowly by organizing part-time. In the spring of 2006 that is when the magic began….I started Closets by Chicka!!!”
She is excited to be an addition to the Living Well Team and ready to get organizing. Chicka loves working on out of control papers and stuff in all rooms of the house and office. She loves transforming closets of all sizes and types.
Chicka has a very outgoing personality, high energy, and a great sense of humor; you will never be bored while organizing again. She also shares our vision that physical clutter can create emotional and mental clutter that starts invading your thoughts and creates too much additional stress.
