Making room for your life
Hi, I’m Monika. In 2016 I read Marie Kondo’s Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up and did such a thorough job applying her KonMari Method to joy-check my home and life that in the spring of 2018 I became the 111th Certified KonMari Consultant in the world!
Since then I kept following my enhanced joy-check abilities to fresh situations, books, and people, all the way to a spiritual awakening of sorts. While I still managed to bungle some things and let fear get the best of me a few times, I'm here and working to get ever closer to my ideal. I’m passionate about sharing the magic of KonMari, the wisdom of nature, and spiritual philosophy.
My company Bower & Bird is named after magical forest architects and decorators the bowerbirds, who build fantastic structures in the woods and surround themselves joy-sparking objects. It's just a little hint that work is about creating beauty, abundance, and bringing us in alignment with nature.

SPEAKING / WORKSHOPS
I have witnessed the transformative power of KonMari in my own life and in the homes and lives of my clients. This is the best thing I have done with my life and I'm excited to talk about it!
Using humor, philosophy, and real life examples I will show you how to turn what has been considered a chore into a festival of personal growth that reaches far beyond your t-shirt drawer, even if it had it's humble begings there.
DESIGN FOR THE PEOPLE
Are you thinking about renovating a part of your home, but weren’t planning to hire a full time architect?
Let me help you think through your ideas and propose something that works for you and makes sense for the home. We’ll start with an on-site design consultation where we’ll discuss some options. I can provide sketches or a quick 3d model to help you visualize the re-configured space. We’ll let your contractor handle the rest.

Monika has helped me clear up my mind, my soul and my house. I really believe that investing in sustainable wellbeing is key to happiness and and success.
Going through the KonMari process with Bower & Bird has radically changed the way that I view my relationship to "stuff." I am more thoughtful about the things I own, and I am more intentional about making my life into what I want it to be.
This has truly been a life changing experience to work with Monika and learn from her, and find a new view on material thing and the energy of my house.
