The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company will begin their first in a series of five programs on Tuesday, January 15 at the Sanibel Community House from 10 to 11:30 a.m. “Downsizing – from Start to Finish” will be presented by Jacqueline Drake, ASID and Professional Organizer on how to face the complexity of transitioning from a larger home or multiple homes to a more manageable and carefree lifestyle.

“This is a very hot topic among our clients and residents of Sanibel-Captiva and the Fort Myers area,” said Robin L. Cook, Executive Vice President and Wealth Services Advisor for The Trust Company. “Whether people just want to organize their lives, move to a simpler living situation or are preparing to move to an independent living community, this presentation can help them by providing a focused step-by-step process on how to address the project, as well as receive recommendations for professional assistance.”

Jacqueline Drake is a certified designer through the American Society of Interior Designers, as well as a professional organizer who regularly assists individuals and couples in the process of downsizing both before and after the move. It does not need to be as daunting as it may seem.

The remaining 2019 Speaker Series presentations include: February 4 - Investing in the Age of Artificial Intelligence; February 26 – Why Selecting a Trustee Matters; March 25 – Power Eating to Help Keep Disease at Bay; and April 8 – The Art of the Appraisal.
