In Her Closet: Lisa Jacobs
Lisa Jacobs, founder and CEO of Imagine it Done, created her business in 2004 after discovering her innate ability to organize whatever chaos came her way. The journey that led Lisa to this destination began at Boston University. As a 1977 Magna Cum Laude graduate in Spanish and French studies, Lisa landed her first job with Payot, the French beauty company. Several years later, moving on to the world of advertising and the model agency industry, Lisa worked in NY and Paris as the assistant to the chief creative director for fashion and beauty accounts; Chanel, L’oreal, and Garnier. Moving back to Manhattan, she worked for Ford Models before settling down to embrace phase 2 of her ongoing career. Soon married, 3 children and 7 homes later, she realized the task, process and moving projects were more than a hobby, rather a lifestyle. Deliberately, for the next several years she concentrated on establishing a business from this passion.
After more than a decade of taking many financial and personal risks, Imagine it Done has grown into a leading business in its category. With a trained team of 12, Imagine it Done provides home organization services to clients throughout the NY and Tristate area. Through our social media platforms, we educate our worldwide followers with videos, products, photos, and tips on how to get and stay organized. We believe “An organized space is an organized mind is an organized life.”
