Marcia loves organizing closets, kitchens and garages. She also specializes in home staging and coaching clients through the downsizing process.

Marcia enjoys working with other Can the Clutter team members on big jobs, requiring immediate results!
In college, Marcia had the privilege of an internship at Dayton's that began her fondness of the Twin Cities area.

Nichole is a single mom who grew up in the Hastings area. She has worked in the wedding & event industry for almost 10 years and decided she wanted to follow her passion of organizing.

She has learned so much over the years on how to get over those hurdles and wants to help others simplify their lives.

Val loves to be a part of the Can the Clutter team! She is the type of person who feels rejuvenated after a project has been completed. She loves the challenge of taking organizational problems and finding effective solutions.
Before Val joined Can the Clutter, she was a retired teacher who thoroughly enjoyed helping her students grow academically and through growth mindset - where effort and practice are the key to success. Each child was unique, each path for growth looked a little different. Similarly, a client's needs vary depending on their life stage. Val enjoys each opportunity to help her clients realize their vision while offering suggestions and input along the way.
Val is married, has two grown children, and two grandchildren. She loves to fill her free time in the garden, sewing, reading, walking nearby lakes, and enjoying family and friends.
As a former teacher, Naomi's calm patience creates a great atmosphere for organizing

Susan considers it her mission to empower individuals through thoughtful organizational systems that eliminate hassle and unlock their full potential. Believing in a balance of possessions and freedom, Susan enjoys walking her clients through the process of knowing, finding, and enjoying what they have, as well as gracefully letting go.

“Marcia was great. She and Maggie (daughter with ADD) spent two hours working in her room. I have a nice pile to take to Goodwill! We are going to have her come back in May when Maggie comes home from school for the summer. We both felt it was well worth it and I would recommend Marcia highly to other people.”
“Catherine is great to work with and is very professional and friendly. She is easy to talk to, positive and encouraging, and doesn’t judge. Both of our children recently moved out permanently, so we’re repurposing their rooms. Catherine helped talk through the things we have accumulated and helped make good, quick decisions. We would highly recommend Can the Clutter if you’re having trouble figuring out where to start with reorganizing or decluttering.”
“Recently, I engaged Marcia Yockers to help me handle the possessions of a friend who was moving out of an apartment to live in a long term care facility. From our very first meeting, I felt very comfortable in letting her handle different aspects of this assignment. Marcia was very efficient as we worked through each phase of the project. She had good ideas on the best way to handle different types of property. I would highly recommend the use of her service as it saved me a lot of time and the project was completed on time and on budget. It allowed me to focus my time on my friend rather than her things.”
