Meet the Team

Ann Bishop

Lead Organizer

After a three-decade corporate career in information technology, Ann decided in 2009 to follow her passion by helping others with their organizing challenges and projects. She loves working with clients to remove the “overwhelm” associated with their homes and offices, as well as during a health crisis or after a death. She gained a deeper appreciation of the latter after handling her father’s elder care and estate administration. Her IT background has proven invaluable in helping clients organize their digital information and streamline technical processes.

She has served the community in many volunteer endeavors and is active in professional organizations, such as the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO), Northern New Jersey Chapter. She is the Newsletter Editor of the Livingston AARP Chapter, was a Certified Medicare Counselor (2010-2013) and is a Notary Public of New Jersey.

Hilda Silverman, MSW, MBA


Hilda is a Financial Organizer who specializes in working with people who find themselves overwhelmed or baffled by financial and other paperwork. They may be facing new responsibilities because of a recent divorce or death, or ongoing difficulties because of challenges such as ADHD.


She explores each client’s goals and objectives, and adapts filing systems and tracking aids to the needs of each. She helps reduce paperwork, avoid unnecessary interest and late charges, and complete various medical, insurance and other forms. She teaches and coaches clients to assume ongoing responsibility and offers additional support and intervention as needed.  

Hilda holds a BA in Psychology, an MSW, and an MBA with a concentration in Management Consulting, from Rutgers. She is a member of the American Association of Daily Money Managers. Her early background in social work and émigré resettlement motivated her to use her more recent corporate coaching and facilitation experience to consult privately with those who need one-on-one financial assistance.


She is a trustee on the board of the Montrose Park Historic District in South Orange and welcomes new residents to the district. She is also on the board of the Women’s Connection at Temple Sharey-Tefilo Israel and volunteers at the South Orange Performing Arts Center.
