Why CIA?

A note from our director....

I began my closet career in 1984. The purpose for this website is because many people along the way helped me on my closet journey, and now I am giving back.

"If only I had had this type of resource 40 years ago, I would have saved myself hundreds of thousands of dollars in costly and avoidable mistakes."
