Zhanna Seideman founded Living Lightly in 2012 with the mission of helping people live simpler, more organized lives. She transforms her clients' homes and encourages them to rethink their approach to their space, time, and priorities. A former New York City educator with a Master’s from Columbia, Zhanna draws from her years in the classroom to create customized solutions that cater to the needs of individuals, families, and children. She also has a unique appreciation for making the most of limited space having lived in many city apartments in New York and Philadelphia over 15 years.
Already hyper-organized in her personal life, she became intrigued with the principles and practices of creating simpler lives for the people around her. Her enthusiasm is due to her sincere belief that applying easy to follow techniques and a highly collaborative approach will enable her clients to make time for what is really important during their busiest days.
Over three years, she has helped nearly 100 clients transform their kitchens, build developmentally appropriate play spaces, rethink wardrobes, and smoothly make major life transitions. Zhanna understands the struggles people encounter trying to get more organized and her empathetic nature enables her clients to maintain a positive outlook to accomplish even the most daunting goals.
Zhanna lives in suburban Philadelphia with her two young girls, Sonya and Nina and her husband, Neil.
Stephanie Miller is a naturally organized individual who truly enjoys de-cluttering closets and organizing kitchen cabinets. Stephanie has always lived a streamlined, efficient, and "lighter" life.
After a successful career as a marketing executive, Stephanie joined Living Lightly as a professional organizer because its guiding principles aligned with her personal philosophy. Over the course of the past 2 years, Stephanie has helped families organize their homes for international and cross country moves, re-arranged city kitchens, and de-cluttered numerous homes.
Stephanie's goal is to help each client live a simpler, more manageable life. She believes you should be in control of your things, not the other way around.
