Welcome to Planned and Proper!

Our mission is to help busy professional women stay organized, productive, and inspired every day. I know that juggling work, family, and personal goals can be a challenge, and that's why I created a line of Day Planners specifically designed to help women prioritize their tasks and achieve their dreams.

At Planned and Proper, we're committed to creating high-quality planners that are both beautiful and functional. Our planners feature a range of valuable tools, including brainstorming worksheets, and goal-setting pages, in a weekly or daily layout. We use only the finest materials, from our metal coil binding and 70lb text paper; with a range of neutral, sophisticated designs, our planners are perfect for any style and any occasion.  But our commitment to excellence doesn't stop with our products. We believe in building a community of like-minded women who support each other's goals and aspirations. That's why we offer free resources, such as our blog and weekly newsletter, to help our customers stay motivated and inspired.

We're proud to have been featured in several prominent media outlets, including Durham Magazine, Black Southern Belle Magazine, We Rule,  Voyage Raleigh, and Good Morning America. 

But what really drives us is the feedback we receive from our customers. We love hearing how our planners have helped women achieve their goals, overcome challenges, and make the most of their time. Check out our Testimonials page to read some of these inspiring stories.

Thank you for considering Planned and Proper for your planning needs. We hope you'll join our community and experience the joy and productivity that comes from being Planned and Proper.



Planned & Proper

Planned, of course, refers to the everyday work that gets done with tools like a day planner. 

But it also refers to the bigger picture of planning: having a vision for the possibilities in life, and turning your dreams into reality by purposeful planning.

Proper is likewise a word with deep significance. 

The deeper meaning for me is a sense of being appropriate, equipped, and well-matched to the occasion at hand.

My heart is serving professional women who seek excellence in their careers and their families. Being Planned & Proper means showing up in life ready to thrive, and ready to serve.


About Shea Burkett


Hi Lovely, 

Hi, I'm Shea Burkett. I'm a wife, mom, and entrepreneur. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and I now live in the beautiful city of Durham, North Carolina. I'm a lover of music from old-school hip hop to country-pop. I live a gluten-free/dairy-free lifestyle (not by choice), and it's changed my life.

I love making gluten-free muffins and ginger tea for breakfast. I could literally have it every day.

I've worked as an Occupational Therapist for 16 years and have helped countless individuals and families set and achieve their long and short-term goals. 

I've always dreamed of having my own business, and I'm so happy that I finally decided to make a go of it. I designed this planner with the modern professional woman in mind. The woman who has to keep several plates spinning. The woman who feels she could use an extra hour (or four) every day.

What motivates me to continue this journey is the desire to share and help women succeed and be their best. I purely and simply believe that anyone can create a balanced, well-planned life. With discipline, organization, wellness, and gratitude, you can change your life and, in turn, change the world.
