The Chaos Whisperer

The Chaos Whisperer Is your life disorganized? Unruly? Maddening with mess? Let the Chaos Whisperer help you tame the chaos in your home and work life. About Rebecca Ahn, The Chaos Whisperer:

For Rebecca, finding balance with chaos has been a life-long practice, both for herself as well as others.

In her youth, Rebecca found frequent reward in helping friends organize their closets, improve their fitness routines, and align their personal goals. Her professional experience began in college at UC Davis, where she embarked on a fulfilling journey in theatre stage management and event production. Most notably, Rebecca founded and head produced a weekly live show for 3 years, arranging fresh weekly lineups of live performance ranging from music, standup comedy and slam poetry to dance, juggling and even mentalist entertainers. In addition, Rebecca served as VP Finance for the Alpha Chi Omega women's fraternity during her time at UC Davis, and helped manage budgets for the entire organization and its members. After college, Rebecca worked at Google for 4 years, where she held positions in advertising & sales (2 years) and executive administrative support (2 years). Both experiences proved immensely useful in further honing her skills for sculpting tailored systems -- for individuals and organizations alike -- that help increase efficiency, decrease stress, and keep chaos at bay. Rebecca made the decision to separate from Google in March 2011, and made the bold move towards freelance work. Today, she pursues two career paths that flavor similarly of time and resource management: independent film producing and organizational consulting. After consulting on a number of one-off cases, Rebecca decided to officially launch the Organize With Google series and services in 2012, with a mission to build it into a truly reliable and robust resource for anyone in need of help establishing stronger harmony with their life's chaos. Rebecca currently resides in San Francisco, CA, and is happy to provide in-person consulting services all across the Northern CA Bay Area.
