Antioch Graduate Sara Caputo is a Radiant Organizer and Productivity Guru

Sara CaputoThis week we feature Antioch University Santa Barbara graduate Sara Caputo (MA Class of 2003), a productivity coach, professional organizer, author, and speaker, in our spotlight on alumni.

Sara Caputo really understands the meaning of “less is more” as she helps people face the challenges that disorganization creates in one’s personal and professional life.

The Antioch University Santa Barbara graduate received her Masters in Psychology with a concentration in Organizational Psychology (Business Psychology). Near the end of completing the program Sara Caputo started down the path of productivity and organization for businesses and individuals. For her Masters thesis project, Caputo researched how clutter interruptions and emotional intelligence affect our productivity levels at work.

After graduating from AUSB in 2003 Sara established herself locally as a dynamic productivity coach, consultant, and trainer. As the Owner of Radiant Organizing, Sara teaches clients in their workplace and home how to create more space in their lives for the things they value. Caputo has helped increase daily effectiveness and profitability for numerous Santa Barbara area businesses – including large corporations, non-profit groups, small businesses and residential clients.

Part of Sara's professional successes is the recent publication of her first book, The Productivity Puzzle, a practical and applicable read that is packed with time saving tools and resources. Sara wrote this e-book with the different individuals she helps in mind; employee, manager, stay-at-home-mom, CEO, or student. Sara breaks the guide into four pieces of the productivity puzzle, the very foundation of organizational success she teaches in her trainings.

Mrs. Caputo is an active member of NAPO, The National Association of Professional Organizers as well as an adjunct faculty member of Santa Barbara City College, a trainer for The Employees University, County of Santa Barbara and a Course leader and Coach at She Negotiates University. Sara volunteers her time to various community organizations and is on the board of the Community Counseling & Education Center.

When asked about her experience at Antioch University Santa Barbara, Sara Caputo said:

"I was unclear as to what I really wanted to do and which direction to go after leaving a career that I had just put time and energy into. I knew that I wanted to one day own a business and work for myself and felt that the path I would take at Antioch towards getting my masters would help me find answers. I loved their class structure and it just felt "right". I am so proud to call Antioch University my alma mater and feel so fortunate to have been able to claim my education through the process."

Sara shares this message to prospective students of Antioch University Santa Barbara:

"I LOVED my Antioch experience. It truly is a highlight in my life. I loved the class structure, the hands-on learning atmosphere, the out of the box thinking minds and of course the instructors, which were real-time, real-life members of the working community. I also was able to participate in the study abroad trips, both as a student and as an alumni and then as Steve's wife (who ran the trips), so that was far and away the best part – learning from others in a global and international way."
