This class is CEU Qualifying

A client or a relative suddenly died.  Now what? What do you do first? Even the most organized of us might draw a blank.  No matter how much we plan for the future, there’s always something that unexpectedly comes up and throws things off. 

This class will cover:

* Take the right steps after a death
* Learn terminology used frequently
* Plan for the unexpected
* Devise a plan in the event of a death
* Gain the confidence to guide your clients and relatives

In this two-hour workshop you will learn how to create a plan for you and your clients.

    Sara Getzkin is the owner of Hands On Organizing Services based in Toluca Lake. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she has a B.A. in Sociology from the University of California at Santa Barbara.  For more than a decade, Sara was gainfully employed by the entertainment industry where she worked on numerous award-winning feature films, television shows, and animation projects.  When organizing her files became more interesting than some of the movies being produced, it was only natural for her to organize full-time.  She has been organizing for as long as she can remember, but officially began her professional organizing business in 2003.

    Her business focus is primarily residential organizing with an emphasis on Senior Citizens, estate planning, financial organizing, and the organization of small, home-based businesses. Sara is a Golden Circle member of NAPO and serves as the NAPO-LA chapter photographer. Often referred to by fellow organizers as the resident “recycling queen,” Sara received NAPO-LA’s 2010 GREEN AWARD for the most eco-friendly organizing service. Sara has appeared in several episodes of TLC’s Hoarding: Buried Alive and her organizing tips have been featured in The Daily News, Senior Planet, and USA Today Weekend.   Previously, Sara has presented classes for POLA on emergency preparedness (2014) and estate planning (2016).
