The National Inventory Certification Association congratulates member Mandy Wiedeman for achieving the Certified Inventory Specialist designation.

certifiedPRESS RELEASE – April 9, 2018 – The National Inventory Certification Association (NICA) is pleased to announce that Mandy Wiedeman, owner of Hearts Ease Home Inventory, has recently earned the designation of Certified Inventory Specialist (CIS). Completing this accomplishment confirms her knowledge that enables her to provide quality residential and small business contents inventory services.

There is an increasing awareness of the necessity and benefits of having a prepared photographic and written record of one’s personal property. This knowledge and the ever-increasing busy lifestyles of homeowners and business owners alike create a growing demand for professional inventory service providers.

To earn the CIS designation, Wiedeman successfully completed required courses developed by NICA, agreed to conduct business according to the asset industry Code of Ethics, and accumulated a minimum number of Continuing Education Units. She then passed the Certification Exam, which is the final step in achieving this designation.

Having an industry certification is not required for the contents inventory industry. Choosing to invest in continuing education shows a desire to learn and excel as a personal property inventory professional. Earning these credentials informs clients that she has gone the extra mile to ensure that Hearts Ease Home Inventory provides quality inventory services.

Wiedeman stated, “It was firsthand experience, serving as co-executor of a friend’s estate, that laid the foundation for Hearts Ease Home Inventory. In the aftermath of losing my friend and settling her estate, I carried a weight that abruptly exposed itself in the form of persistent, overwhelming anxiety and depression. Thoughts of responsibilities and identical commitments made to serve in this capacity for others stimulated a desperate sense of urgency to get my own affairs in order, and do so in a way that would alleviate potential impacts this process holds for surviving family and friends.”

Based in Fort Collins, Colorado, Hearts Ease Home Inventory offers residential and business asset inventory services for disaster preparedness and recovery, estate planning, estate settlement, and separation of assets for homes and businesses.
