Meet Our Team


Tara Donohue Rudo launched No More Piles in 2002 to help Baltimore’s busy families and small business owners get more organized so they could reduce their stress, save money and have more time for the things they really care about.

Prior to stepping into her entrepreneurial journey, Tara spent over a decade working in various corporate environments, ranging from financial planning and investments to medical offices, staffing agencies and restaurants. This broad experience has given her a unique perspective in developing and implementing simple yet highly effective organization systems for her clients.

Tara believes that work life balance is the rainbow unicorn. Life and work both need our 100% focus. The key is to manage your time and skills to give 100% to each at various parts of the day and week. Her passion is helping clients learn tools and strategies so they can spend quality time on the big rocks in their life and not on the sand.

Tara is one of only 350 Certified Professional Organizers in the world and a Certified Organizer Coach. She is a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals and NAPO’s Golden Circle.

Tara has been featured on Fox 45 Morning News and in Parenting Magazine, Working Mother Magazine, the Baltimore Sun, The Jewish Times, Carroll Magazine and The Capital newspapers. Tara is a frequent speaker on organizing and time management at various community, business and non-profit organizations.
