Meet Jazz


Lesley "Jazz" BarnettePrior to creating Jazz Personal Management, Lesley “Jazz” Barnette spent 13 years as a business manager for architectural firms.  One day she found herself laid off without a job, so she asked herself, “What do I want to be when I grow up?”  Jazz spent the next two years in personal growth workshops, embarking on an inner journey to uncover her talents and to determine a way to use them in her own unique business while making a difference in people’s lives. 

When she began her business in 1997, Jazz had never heard of “professional organizing”.  Unaware of any training programs available to her, she basically trained herself along the way, using her natural organizing skills, as well as her rapport-building people skills, to create a much needed service business.  Once she became aware of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO) in 2001, she joined the organization and has been a member in good standing ever since.  As a member of NAPO, she is able to receive ongoing training and education on a variety of topics and products pertinent to the organizing industry from both the local chapter meetings, as well as national conference.  In 2004, Jazz was awarded the designation of Golden Circle member of NAPO. 

Jazz has provided her clients with a variety of Professional Organizing services custom designed to make them more efficient, productive, and at peace with their environment, or as she likes to put it, “custom designed to help you Get a Life”.  Jazz works with individuals, sole proprietors and businesses on a per-project or an ongoing basis.

Jazz is a native of Manchester, New Hampshire, USA.  She received a B.S. in Communications Disorders and a Minor in Dance at the University of New Hampshire.
