Meet Our Team!
Sunny Spaces Owner
Sunny Spaces owner, Erika Maddamma, has been passionate about organizing for as long as she can remember. As a kid she would wake up on Saturday mornings and re-organize her closet, just for fun. She would offer to help clean up and organize friends' rooms when she went over for play dates. For Erika, there’s something therapeutic about the organizing process and even more rewarding to know she helped a friend out! She’s a naturally positive person, always looking on the bright side and is a great motivator. She firmly believes life should be lived fully, dreams should be pursued and nothing should hold you back!
After nearly a decade of working for a car seat manufacturer in the baby industry, educating retail staff, and having a child of her own, Erika’s desire to help other parents dealing with the excess baby items, exploding playrooms and insane schedules led her back to her passion and Sunny Spaces Organizing in Pittsburgh was born. Erika grew up in New England. She moved to Pittsburgh in 2016, after meeting her husband while she was traveling for work. Aside from organizing, Erika also loves:
spending time in the sunshine, traveling, practicing yoga
dance parties with her son, Kaleb, and snuggles with Baby Jaxson
bold red wine, hoppy IPA’s and rich, black coffee
sushi, ice cream and campfire s’mores
Erika considers herself down to earth and looks forward to helping people in the Pittsburgh area meet their organizing goals!
