Darien's HamletHub Team
HamletHub.com sites differ from other media outlets based on their focus on the needs of the community — its residents as well as the organizations and businesses that make up the fabric of the town. Darien HamletHub offers a unique opportunity for these groups to have a voice in their community, either by submitting articles to the site as a local resident, or by participating in the site's unique Article Membership service for businesses, giving them an unprecedented opportunity to tell their story and to differentiate themselves in the marketplace.
Darien HamletHub is a community advocate that is closely connected to the people, places and things that make Darien tick. Readers and advertisers will benefit from a direct line to the heart of the community, the people who are eager to help local philanthropies, as well as those looking for something to do tonight and this weekend.

Seana Turner - Professional Organizer
Seana Turner founded The Seana Method in 2010 because she wanted to help people. She was saddened by the many people in her life who complained that their spaces were a mess, their schedules were out of control, and they felt overwhelmed by their "stuff". In a society where accumulation of wealth had always been linked to high quality of life, Seana was seeing that the direct opposite was happening.
Born and raised outside Philadelphia, Seana attended The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania where she earned a BSE. She worked for years in Marketing Consulting, and then stepped out of the corporate world when her children were born. It was during this time that she realized she had something valuable to offer the marketplace, and she started helping friends and family members "get organized".
Over time she developed The Seana Method, and since her launch has found great joy in helping others realize the freedom that organization can bring to life. She now lives in the New York metro area with her husband and two daughters.
