Hello, my name is Sherry Drolet and I am the Key Designer and Organizer for Totally Transformed.
I started my own business here in Arizona almost five years ago, after leaving the corporate world after 20 years in the property management and real estate development field.
I carry with me a diverse background that lends itself to my abilities to do many tasks and be creative in many arenas. As I earned my way through college as a restaurant server and admissions assistant, and even worked the weekends as a fashion model, I soon realized I was always attracted to a new adventure or challenge. Easily finding myself after a year of a job, once I got everything organized and running smoothly, I would get bored, and find myself looking for new challenges and things to organized. it seemed that I accepted many of my jobs based on the need of the management wanting someone who was “organized” and “detail oriented” to handle the work and create a better system than the person before me.
So, after many years and many “hats” it was when I left the workplace to stay at home with my kids that I really got to dabble in owning my own business. I started with a cleaning business where I would travel with child in playpen and clean condos; then once my son got old enough to start climbing out of the playpen, I started an in-home licensed family day care for a few years, and then moved on to being a Creative Memories Consultant and shortly after my passion found me…as a fellow Consultant noted how organized I was and offered to pay me to “organize” her products, office and scrapbook room; and then raved to others about what I did for her, I realized this is what I wanted to do when “I grew up!”. so I started my first organizing business in Florida, called “Everything In Its Place”.
After a few years and a career change for my husband, we moved to Arizona; another adventure, another house to decorate (like the last three I had lived in); and I was in my glory! But afraid to start my business from “scratch” in a new state with very little contacts, I went back into the “corporate” world of property management, again to find that others would seek me out to help them get organized; even my boss’ wife heard I used to be an “organizer” and hired me to organize her kids play area…and the passion was back, I soon after found myself decorating my sales office, helping plan and decorate for parties and getting my courage up and adding clients to my list. So,it was just a few short years before I decided to go back to my first love…and I started another business along side my husband which we currently own and operate together with my Totally Transformed business.
So here I am, still after 7 years loving what I do. Redesign, Staging and Organizing all go hand in hand, and utilizes the full extent of my quest for variety, creativity and planning. Each job is its own “project” no two things are the same, and I am NEVER bored! In owning my own business, I get the joy of creating new spaces, organizing rooms, plus the challenge of running a business. It hits all the realms of my desires and keeps me moving on, changing, redirecting and creating new and unique experiences every day.
