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’s expertise as a Space Planner started with designing large subdivisions in upstate New York. After eleven 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!
On Sunday mornings, you’ll find her sharing Eggs Benedict and pancakes with friends at one of Portland's local breakfast spots. She also loves making beautiful, rustic desserts like Boccone Dolce and strawberry shortcake. Jill lives with her squirrel-loving collie, Brodie, in a small house with a big garden in Southeast Portland.
Jill's organizing tips have been featured in InStyle Magazine and on Redfin, and she has appeared on the A&E Network’s television program, “Hoarders,” as well as KATU’s “Afternoon Live.”
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.
