Missy Crawford joined Cocozza Organizing + Design in 2018, providing hands-on organizing and consulting. Missy consistently goes beyond the initial jumpstart of any project, investing in her clients, teaching them the secrets to maintaining the system that works best for them. With a flair for design, Missy’s organizing solutions are functional yet beautiful and no detail escapes her attention. Residential organizing, estate closeouts, and downsizing transitions showcase her talents best and are also the most rewarding. As a busy mom of two, Missy understands well the satisfaction and peace of an ordered living space.
Prior to her work with Cocozza, Missy instructed as a paraeducator in a public school, providing organizational study tools to students with learning disabilities, helping many students make sense of their studies and transform into true success stories. Earlier in her career, Missy worked as an organizing and design assistant at Samara Interiors, LLC in Arlington, honing skills such as space-planning, design installation and styling.
