Annie Draddy, Co-Founder

Tell us a bit about yourself?

I was born and raised in New Jersey. After college I spent a few years living in Boston and Chicago until I finally made my way to New York City and I never looked back. Before starting Henry & Higby with Michelle, I worked in public relations for over 10 years honing my organizational, managerial and problem solving skills which ultimately lead me to the realization that organization, in all its forms, is my passion.

 

Where do you live?

I have lived in Brooklyn Heights for over 10 years and I love it.

 

Why do you love where you live?

I love my neighborhood and the mix of older, established markets, butchers and diners mixed with newer stores, coffee shops and restaurants.

 

What do you guys do?

We are professional organizers and co-founders of Henry & Higby. We believe that life with children should be as simple as possible and that decluttering and getting organized can help families find a little more balance in their homes and lives.

 

What’s unique about your business?

We work on all projects as a team of two which helps us get in and out of our clients homes faster so that they can get back to living and enjoying their lives without the stress of unorganized spaces. This is especially important in the city since space is typically at a premium.

 

What’s ahead for Henry & Higby?

We will continue to help families live a simpler life by helping them declutter their homes and establish systems that help make life a little less stressful.
