About Jill, CPO®

Jill Viglione has always been passionate about organization. Her career in Portland as a Certified Professional Organizer (CPO®) with Embrace Your Space began over twenty years ago, when she accepted her first job—organizing a San Francisco Victorian knee-deep in clutter. She learned she loved inspiring her clients to find the hidden beauty in their spaces and helping them redesign their spaces and live better lives.

Jill is a co-author of Real Spaces, a coffee table style book that highlights realistic and beautiful organizing systems, providing step-by-step instructions on how to organize your home. Her organizing tips have been featured in Martha Stewart Living, Homes & Gardens, InStyle Magazine, Redfin, and she has appeared on KATU’s “Afternoon Live.” Her organizing systems have also been featured in Clark County's Parade of Homes.


Jill’s expertise as a Space Planner started with designing large subdivisions in upstate New York. After 10 years as a Floorplan Designer and Draftsperson, her clients love that her handwriting looks like it’s from a label maker!

Born in Poughkeepsie, New York, at 24 she packed up her Chevy Nova and drove across the country to a tiny apartment in San Francisco. After 15 years of loving the Bay Area, Jill moved to Portland in 2002 and loves it even more!

Jill graduated from Albany State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts. She is a former Vice President of Oregon’s Board of the National Association for Productivity & Organizing Professionals (NAPO). In 2020 she earned NAPO's highest credential: Certified Professional Organizer (CPO®). She also holds NAPO Certifications in two areas of expertise: Residential Organizing and Workplace Productivity.


Embrace Your Space is a Certified Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) and is fully licensed and insured.
