Marina Mahnken was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and is a current resident of Manalapan, New Jersey. She is a mommy of three daughters (plus two cats), a wife for nearly two decades, and a former certified preschool teacher.

She opened Declutter My Clutter in the beginning of 2016 in Monmouth County, New Jersey where she expanded her local business to a small multi-person team of six Organizers. In 2021, she moved down to Central Florida and ran Declutter My Clutter as a Sole Organizer. Although Florida was quite beautiful, it was ultimately not the right fit for her family, so she returned to Monmouth County, New Jersey. Marina is currently running Declutter My Clutter as a Sole Organizer once again!

Declutter My Clutter is a Professional Member of NAPO (National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals). Over the years, Marina has earned several Specialist Certificates issued by NAPO including Residential Organizing, Workplace Productivity, Life Transitions and Team Productivity, as well as a Foundations Certificate of Study in Chronic Disorganization from The Institute for Challenging Disorganization.

With a background in teaching and tutoring people of all ages, Marina approaches her work with a unique blend of compassion and expertise. Rather than striving for an “Instagram-perfect” aesthetic, Marina focuses on creating realistic and functional spaces tailored to each client’s unique needs and lifestyle. By understanding natural habits and behaviors, she helps her clients achieve lasting organization that enhances their daily lives.

In her personal life, Marina finds joy in embracing the great outdoors during the warm seasons of spring and summer, taking walks in Monmouth County parks, and enjoying the Jersey shore beaches. Marina loves listening to music, with a deep affection for Tool, Radiohead, Pearl Jam, Chris Cornell, Tori Amos, and Pink Floyd.
