Meet the Team


Aileen Mitchener
Owner, CEO, Lead Organizer

Aileen (she/her/they) created Aligned by Aileen in 2020. A Belmont University alumna with a degree in Musical Theatre, her skills on stage better help her choreograph your home; she's also known to belt out some Billboard Top 100 while working on projects (or at karaoke once a week). When she is not organizing, she is most likely rehearsing or performing in musicals and plays in the DMV area (and sometimes out of state or even internationally!) She loves fitness and used to manage two Orangetheory Fitness studios. She lived in Manhattan for four years which helped her develop her love for organizing apartments and making efficient use of small spaces. She is the proud dog mom of the cutest cavapoo named Tubbs! 


Let our clients speak for themselves!
