I’m Brandi Nicole O’Dell, owner and founder of Organized by O’Dell. I graduated in 2010 from Western Michigan University (Go Broncos!) with a degree in fashion merchandising. Since then I’ve worked for many companies doing merchandising and visual work, which I still currently do with Gap. In 2013 I started my own personal styling business and offered closet organization as part of my service. I realized that I loved organizing more than styling, so Organized by O’Dell was born a year later.
I just moved to Chicago from Detroit and am absolutely loving exploring the city and experiencing so many new things.
I’m married to my fantastic husband, Erik Granning, whom is beside me every step of the way, especially with building my website and social media. He works in advertising specializing in digital media and is a total tech nerd.
I’m also an avid baker, outdoor enthusiast, and reader. Ideally you could find me outside on a blanket, eating something I’ve baked while reading a fabulous book.
I believe having an organized, functional living space will alleviate most of your life’s stresses and frustrations and I’m here to make that transformation happen.
