x Deb and Sylvia
ShipShape is a partnership between Deborah Silberberg and Sylvia Borchert.

Deborah Silberberg started working with individual clients 25 years ago. Initially, she focused on bookkeeping and financial management. However, being a problem solver at heart, she soon found herself offering additional services like organizing a closet or a garage, setting up a filing system, or helping with a move. Sylvia Borchert joined the company in 1994, bringing an extensive background in event planning. Together they have expanded ShipShape into a full-service organizing consulting company, with offices in Oakland and New York. They work with a team of professionals with varied backgrounds in areas such as art, catering, computers, design, and office management.

Christine spacer Christine Hebel met Deb and Sylvia while working as a massage therapist in 2001. Her previous experience with personal assistance and organizing, coupled with patience and a non-judgmental attitude boded well for a position in their field. Her interest in freeing up space in people's lives transferred well from body to home and she boarded ShipShape shortly thereafter.
Annie spacer Annie Schiffmann was trained at The Container Store as an Elfa closet expert. After nearly four years and thousands of closets, Annie transitioned to working in clients' homes. In October 2006 she teamed up with the NY/CA-based company ShipShape. Pairing with veteran organizers, she has gone into people's homes to address their needs for their homes, offices, and relocations.

ShipShape has been featured on HGTV and NPR and in numerous publications including two Sunset books: 'Smart Closet Makeovers' and 'Home Organizing and Closet Makeovers'.
