SAN ANTONIO — When Beth Reynolds-Tillack tidies a cluttered cupboard, she doesn't just achieve organization. A clean cabinet relieves stress, she said.

"As a mom, I feel better when things are in order," she said. "I like to be able to help other moms feel that way."

And she does as owner of Jill of All Trades.

The business is a part-time organizing, gardening and decorating business that Reynolds-Tillack, 51, started in 2010 after friends who admired the decor and organization in her home made the suggestion.

Reynolds-Tillack — a mom of children ages 9, 10 and 12 — had worked previously for an interior designer, used to own a commercial greenhouse and is a member of a local garden club. She always has been organized, she said.

So she can quickly tidy up a closet or a cupboard when the mess has gotten bigger than a client has time to handle, she said. She can landscape a yard for somebody who physically can't. She can handle the plans and decorations for birthday parties or other events so their hosts can relax and enjoy them.

Jill of All Trades' services are "natural for me," said Reynolds-Tillack. "If I can do it to help someone, that makes us both feel better."
