Kidden Prep was founded in January, 2015 by two sisters who have a passion for organizing and helping people achieve their goals. The business name was chosen in honor of their deceased parents, Marilyn & Ralph Chiesi, whose loving support of their 3 children will never be forgotten, and whose nicknames for each other were “Kidden” and “Prep”, respectively.
We love converting clutter to clarity!
