Our Story

Sunny Spaces owner, Erika Maddamma, has been passionate about organizing for as long as she can remember. As a kid she would wake up n Saturday mornings and re-organize her closet, just for fun. She would offer to help clean up and organize friend’s rooms when she went over for a play date. 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 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. 

  • 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 you reach your goals!

Michelle

Assistant Organizer

Michelle is a Pittsburgh native, but just relocated home after spending the last nine years teaching elementary school in northern Virginia! While perhaps new to the professional organizing scene, friends and family agree that it has been in her blood from a very young age.  From organizing her extensive Barbie collection as a child to her reluctant husband's closet today, she's had plenty of practice.  Happy to be back in the burgh, Michelle is spending her free time organizing her own home and preparing for her baby girl due in January!  She also enjoys cooking, reading, and snuggling her two kitties, Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald.  Michelle looks forward to working with you to create your own sunny space!
