About Linda

Hi! My name is Linda Groat, and I am the founder and owner of Simply Back to Basics Organizing & Coaching. I worked as a WNY School Psychologist from 1990 -2006. I had always dreamed of owning my own organizing and coaching business.

In 2006, I decided to pursue this dream. I am deeply committed to helping people achieve success through simplifying their lives and reclaiming their space. Because of my comprehensive training and experience, I can help people in a systematic and meaningful way. My mission is to provide excellent, personalized service to clients of all ages and stages, while enjoying my work and keeping my personal and family life in balance. My goal is to help my clients achieve the same sense of satisfaction and peace.

I am a member of the National Association of Professional Organizers (NAPO), Upstate NY Organizers and the American Association of Daily Money Managers. I married my wonderful husband in 1990, after completing my Master of Arts Degree at Alfred University, in School Psychology. I am the proud mom of four children, a son and three daughters, the youngest two adopted from China.
