In 2010 Laurie Malloy had the idea to start Simple Spaces. She felt that people were choosing stuff over quality of life and wanted to help. Initially Simple Spaces began as an organizing, home staging, and relocation business. After a couple of years, Laurie realized that sometimes the problem went much deeper than just what could be seen in the physical. She yearned to help her clients make lasting change, and that starts with the mental. She still organizes and enjoys helping people with their physical spaces, but in 2014, she also became an Associate Certified Coach credentialed through the International Coach Federation (ICF). She takes her clients thoughts and ideas and turns them into manageable concrete steps, making their dreams and goals more attainable and providing the direction and accountability they need. Her focused, organized, and simple methods have propelled her coaching clients into achieving their true potential. She also shares her passion for simple living through speaking engagements to both large and small groups and has a genuine sense of accomplishment in encouraging others.

Laurie graduated from Texas A & M University-Texarkana. She enjoys reading, walking and biking the trails with her husband, and spending time with her family.


Jenna’s role with Simple Spaces has evolved over the past several years. Her current role includes accompanying Laurie on all home staging jobs as well as select speaking engagements and marketing. Jenna graduated from the University of Central Arkansas with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication and Spanish. She is a licensed realtor with Collier & Associates and loves helping people find their perfect home or sell their home so that they can move on to their next chapter. She has also flipped homes in the Fayetteville area and loves being hands-on and watching homes transform back into beautiful places for a new family to live in. She enjoys decorating and anything home-related as well as traveling, and spending time with her husband and daughter.
