Sarah Zengo:
Stylist and Personal Shopper


» Read what Sarah's clients have to say about working with her!

Sarah Zengo has always been a firm believer in the power of personal presentation and the importance of looking and feeling your best. When she joined the Organization By Design team, it was a dream come true.

A native of Boston, Sarah obtained her Master's degree in Communications Management at Simmons College. While writing a research paper for the program on personal shopping in the area, Sarah came across the Organization By Design website and fell in love with the professionalism of the company and practical approach to dressing well documented in Mary Lou Andre's book, Ready to Wear. Years later, Sarah met Mary Lou and was invited to join the team.

Sarah's love of fashion and creativity has been influenced greatly by her mother, an artist, and their frequent excursions to museums and art studios when she was a child. This exposure to art at a young age sparked Sarah's innate sense of style and passion for fashion. "I have always loved helping people and have a great appreciation for how much personal confidence is linked to the beauty you create in your environment—for me this translates into what to wear and how to wear it. When I found Organization By Design, Inc., I knew that I was meant to be part of this fantastic group and I am honored to represent the company."

Notes firm Founder & President Mary Lou Andre, "Sarah is a breath of fresh air to all of us at Organization By Design, including her clients. Her positive attitude, excellent fashion sense and ability to switch gears fast to get any job done is impressive. She is a team player who truly partners with her clients by first closely listening to them and then appropriately guiding them to deliver the results they are seeking."

Sarah studied English at UMass Amherst, and also studied abroad including an internship at Condé Nast Publications, Inc. in London where she worked for several of the company's magazine publications including Condé Nast Traveler and Vogue. Her extensive experience in alumna relations and development at Simmons College brings additional depth to her keen awareness of how to effectively read situations and work with people from diverse backgrounds."

Adds client Katie Corbett, "My time with Sarah was the best gift my parents could have given me at this juncture in my career. Sarah not only upgraded my business casual wardrobe to help me get ready for my new job but she went the distance to find pants that truly fit me. Once we landed on the brand that provided the perfect fit, we stocked up and were able to get lots of looks from each pair by mixing them with a variety of tops, blazers and outerwear. I love the skirts and dresses we found too. She educated me about alterations and really nailed the shoes. I can't wait to shop with her again. She's fun and relaxing to be around. I feel totally ready to start my new job!"

Sarah lives in Boston with her husband Chris and two small children Jack and Molly.
