Andrea I. Hancock
Founder & CEO
Andrea believes that an organized life can significantly decrease stress in an inevitably stressful life. Born and raised in the Washington, DC Metro area, she graduated with a degree in accounting from the University of Maryland at College Park. Andrea spent almost 15 years in fields of government HR, administration, and non-profit accounting. She uses her knowledge and experience to create processes and systems for her clients.
Since starting Dexterous Organizing in March of 2010, she loves assisting overwhelmed professionals, transitional and downsizing families to gain more control in their lives and manage less chaos in their homes and workspaces. An active member of NAPO (National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals), she works hands-on with her clients from strategy, implementation, and (for those who are open to creating positive change) organizing coaching.
While professional organizing deals with the stuff, Andrea is a graduate of the foundation courses of Coach Approach for Organizers and uses organizing coaching as a tool to partner with her clients to dig a little deeper to clarify values and ‘what matters most’ in order to create a more balanced lifestyle.
When she’s not organizing herself or her clients, she’s in her volunteer ministry, reading and studying to improve her life (and a little for pleasure), traveling, enjoying new and favored delicious food and drink. She also enjoys watching a good movie on the couch with her husband and Yorkie at home in Alexandria, near Huntley Meadows Park.
COO & Team Manager
A native of Washington, DC, Kellie Powell started and operated a successful business for years while living in North Carolina. With a background in business accounting and psychology, she transitioned back to the DMV area and began a career that honed her love of organizing. In Washington DC, she proved to be the foundation of success for a landscape architectural firm, working very closely with the CEO.
Kellie partnered with Andrea and joined the Dexterous Organizing family in 2017. She immediately joined NAPO and continues in her already solid foundation and experience in organizing.
In addition to her patient and understanding nature, Kellie brings her love of people, creativity and interior design to Dexterous Organizing's already stellar reputation of a compassionate and non-judgmental organization and design. She has an intense passion for helping people and spends much of her free time in volunteer counseling work.
She currently lives in Springfield with her beloved husband, cherished nephew, and her darling Havanese.
Chiree Danielle Wanzer
Sr. Team Lead
Danielle was born to organize! As long as she can remember, she’s been organizing things. From crayons, school work, and toys to her clothing, she’s found organizing to be therapeutic and calming. Her family has benefited as she’s been organizing for them since childhood.
Although Chiree (Shy-ree) is her first name, we at Dexterous Organizing introduce her to clients as Danielle, her middle name. She reached out for this opportunity with Dexterous Organizing in 2018 and happily joined the team to help bring her love of organizing and her skill set to making life better for our clients.
Sr. Team Lead
Camille joined the Dexterous Organizing team as an associate organizer in August 2018. She loves using her gift for organizing to bring calm and joy to people’s spaces. Kitchens are her jam but bedrooms and offices are a close second. Camille believes that a healthy dose of empathy, humor, and vision can make even the toughest of projects a sparkling success.
Originally from Seattle, Washington, Camille is a newcomer to the DMV area and spends her free time exploring the rich history of DC, trying new restaurants, sipping lattes, and perfecting her homemade pie recipe.
Jr. Team Lead
Organizational skills have always been an aspect of Yaritza’s personal traits and utilized in larger workplace environments. Joining Dexterous Organizing is Yaritza’s first formal job organizing, and excited to use her natural skills to help everyday individuals. Yaritza has had various home office and art studio setups over the years and loves staging and organizing efficient workspaces.
When she is not creating art, Yaritza enjoys hockey, craft beer, and yoga. Often escaping in nature for hiking and meditation.
Jasmin is incredibly patient, has wonderful analytical skills, puts together furniture like a champion and loves sorting and finding suitable homes for our client’s belongings. She loves helping our clients develop systems to help them not stress about wasting time and frustrations looking for something. It also makes her happy to help bring joy, peace, and happiness through organization.
Jasmine joined the Dexterous Organizing Team in 2018 and when she has free time, she spends it with family and friends and volunteering.
Before her retirement from being a clinical research coordinator, she continued to hone her organizational skills as the position required all the t’s to be crossed and i’s to be dotted as her work was reviewed by the FDA.
Now as a team member with Dexterous Organizing, she enjoys helping our clients get their spaces from cluttered to calm. She makes great suggestions and puts her natural leaning toward organization to good use by helping them to transform their home into a haven.
