Hi! I’m Claryce and I have graciously been told that I am a gifted and talented organizer. And, that I am a “dynamic, whip-smart, creative genius who brings to the table her own extensive lists of talents and skills.” – Thank you, Melody Moore, for those very kind words! I promise to do my utmost to live up to your glowing description. I commit to greeting all my clients with a bright smile, and to bring positive energy with a fun and engaging approach to all my projects.   Click Here for More of Claryce's Bio

With over 35-years in high-profile marketing for the healthcare and banking industries, my passion for detail and my willingness to go that extra mile to delight my customers has earned me praise and respect from colleagues and customers alike. My all-inclusive project management, business development, and marketing experience continually advanced past employers by reaching their annual goals. And while marketing may not seem on the surface like it’s connected to being a professional home organizer, my attention to detail and drive to finish even the most daunting projects while maintaining a calm and positive work environment are what made me successful as a marketing director and are my greatest skills when it comes to home organizing.

I also take great pride in my ability for planning special events. My works include everything from small private dinner parties to statewide week-long events (a different town every night, consisting of morning and evening events). My attention to detail was demonstrated from my reservation processes to the table decorations to the giveaways at the annual dinners for both top-customers and top employees. Community events include health fairs (over 1,000 attendees), political measures, fundraising and sporting events. To top it all off, I have even planned a couple of weddings.

I am truly passionate about giving back to the community in which I live. It was with great pleasure that I served as a board member for the following organizations: CASA, American Red Cross, American Heart Association, Arroyo Grande Rotary Club, South County Exploration Station, LMUSD Oversight Committee, and Committee for Measure A (twice). I am also very supportive of local schools and non-profits; donating my time by providing advertising, marketing and event planning.

I have extensive experience in helping people create peace and beauty in their homes and offices. It’s one of my natural gifts. I began practicing on my Mom’s cupboards at eight-years-old, and have been going strong ever since. I have successfully tackled creating organized workspaces, workflow processes, filing systems, and over-all functionally my entire career.

I passionately believe that you are to leave a place better than you found it and that you CAN create a new chapter in your life – one step at a time.

In my free time, I love to paint and my artwork is featured on Claryce Knupper Art Studio

You Are Not Alone, Together We Make It Happen

I love bringing together the right people to make your project a success.  Together we clean, purge, pack, move, repair, paint install, store or sell — all efforts based on your needs and budget.

“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”  – Helen Keller

Brighten The Corners is owned and operated by Melody Moore.

There’s no mystery why Melody is a professional organizer and why she is so passionate about the work she does and the clients she serves – she has been organizing all her life.

Melody began organizing as a volunteer with political and non-profit campaigns in high school. After attending Cal Poly, Pomona, with a major in Behavioral Sciences, she pursued a career in media with Lakeshore Music in Newport Beach before moving to Chicago, where she was hired by the WGN-TV national sales team.

In 1982, she started “Melody Moore & Associates” a solopreneur devoting her organizing, public relations, media and management skills to an extensive list of clients.  Melody served as the Illinois Press Secretary to Democratic Presidential candidate, U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey and produced the statewide announcement and kick-off fundraiser for U.S. Senator Carol Moseley Braun, in addition to serving a variety of local candidates including Mayor Harold Washington.

Specialized promotions involved obtaining and working with such celebrities as Paul Newman, Michael Jordan, Billy Crystal, Richard Gere, Jackson Browne, Ralph Nader,(in four campaigns) and Abbie Hoffman, to name a few. She established regional conferences and organized successful statewide solar lobbying efforts.  As a spokesperson, Melody appeared on countless television and radio programs including Entertainment Tonight, USA Today, TIME magazine, People, Jet/Ebony, Rolling Stone, Chicago Magazine, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Sun Times, Chicago Tribune and many others. She made appearances on national television and radio programs including NPR with appearances on the Studs Terkel show.

During this time, Melody also worked at intervals with a law practice specializing in Social Security Disability benefits and appeals.  This work led to the calling of pursuing a career as a paralegal.  In 1993, Melody received her American Bar Association Certificate, with Honors, at Roosevelt University in Chicago.

Arriving to San Luis Obispo in 1994, her career as a full-time paralegal began. She continued to hone her organizing skills over the course of the next 15 years. She also served as an Office Administrator in law offices managing teams of legal assistants and interns as well as prepare casework procedure manuals, policy manuals, and client information packets.

With the passing of her mother in 2008, she became an independent paralegal while tackling the responsibilities of managing to complete the necessary estate work.

A lifetime of organizing skills has come full circle with “Brighten The Corners,” clearing and creating home and office environments so that clients can live their best lives now.

Melody’s community efforts continue as she offers pro bono services to the community as well as volunteer for local non-profits and campaigns.  In 2014, she was the Executive Producer of Jennifer Alton’s “Passion & Purpose” film which was the recipient of “Best Documentary Film” at the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival.  That year, a DVD copy of the film was placed in the San Luis Obispo 100 year time capsule.
