Amy Delaplain, Professional Organizer
Simply put, Amy Delaplain gets things done. The founder and CEO of Project Organize 615 is a mom of two teenagers who knows how difficult it can be to work, manage the house, finish projects and keep things organized. But project and home management is in her DNA.
She is a former corporate project manager leading multi-million dollar projects for Fortune 1000 companies and government agencies. Yet when asked to pick one of her favorite projects, she said her own closet organization is at the top of the list.
“It’s pretty and I love how everything has a place,” she said, describing her closet. “It also has some feminine touches and an area for me to showcase my love of shoes.”
Therein lies the secret winning formula behind Project Organize 615: Amy’s professional experience and her personal passion combine to give customers an invaluable resource. Detailed and competitive by nature, Amy tackles every project, big or small, with a passion for the little details. She helps clients create a great plan of action and then gets to work.
“This is something I am truly passionate about,” Amy said of Project Organize 615. “I guess it makes me feel like I’m my own kind of super hero. I love meeting new people and working with them to understand how I can help. If I can minimize their stress by lessening the workload or giving them a clutter free space so they can enjoy time doing more of what they love, everyone wins.”
Originally from Ohio (Go Buckeyes!), Amy lives in Franklin. After more than 20 years of working for a CPA and consulting firm implementing enterprise systems and re-engineering business processes, Amy traded her corporate projects in for her own personal projects. She’s tackled a backyard retreat, kid’s room makeovers, a mudroom addition, a home office and multiple landscaping projects, as well as larger community volunteer projects including organizing a wildly successful auction to benefit the YWCA.
Project Organize 615 was founded so that Amy could share her passion for project management and life organization with others.
“I was a tomboy growing up, spending most of my time outdoors playing sports, but I was also very studious,” Amy said. “Early on I found a balance that allowed me to pursue clubs and sports while also maintaining high marks in my honors courses. That combined with my detail-oriented nature has allowed me to be successful and still motivates me to pursue the next challenge or project.”
“Upon reflection, I guess I’ve always treated all my pursuits as a challenge or a project. It’s exciting to create a plan and see it through. I always have at least one project going. I like to keep my mind active and to be focused.”
“Whether it’s managing a project or organizing a space for someone, I find it very rewarding, especially seeing the end-result through my client’s eyes!"

Meet the team
MEG CANNON - In my former career as Director of Health Information, organization was a must to be able to run my department efficiently. Now as a mom of two boys, I know how hard it is to stay organized, and am drawn to finding new ways to organize my house and family. I totally geek out at Office Depot and the Container Store. It has been so fun to work with PO615 and Amy Delaplain. I love going into a project with the only goal being to make our client's life/household clutter and stress free, as well as more productive! Each project is different, so it is always challenging, which I love!
DAWN DUFFETT - As a preschool teacher for over 20 years, Dawn has had to be highly organized to successfully manage a classroom and make lesson plans. “If you are not organized and well prepared it can feel much like herding cats,” Dawn says. The need for creativity, while being organized, and her love for people join perfectly with PO615. She is often organizing her space, as well as friends and family, and is so excited to join the Team of Project Organize 615 to help others find solutions for being organized too!
