Erika Maddamma

Sunny Spaces Company  Owner

Sunny Spaces company 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 deal 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 boys, Kaleb and Jaxson

  • bold red wine, hoppy IPA 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!

Danielle always had a passion for health and fitness which landed her first career in Physical Therapy. When the pandemic hit, she realized she was unfulfilled in her life and current career.
