October of 2014, I was honored to receive the Harold
Taylor Award from Professional Organizers in Canada
(POC). Each year this award is presented to a member of the
association to recognize outstanding individual
contribution, guidance and direction to the organizing profession,
and for support of POC.
I’ve helped entrepreneurs, managers and other busy
professionals, assisting with any number of jobs
to make their lives easier. What I do depends on what you
I enjoy working one-on-one with clients. This can mean anything
from rolling up my sleeves and tackling a chaotic storage
closet or a messy renovation
project to setting up a filing system or
even re-designing your office with new furniture
to ensure your space works for you and looks great at the
same time. The sky’s the limit.
I also enjoy working with teams of people. I’m often
asked to lead training sessions on subjects
to help increase productivity at the office,
or to help de-clutter and organize at home.
Streamlining Your Stuff - saving time and money
Your stuff requires systems and organizing processes, but
as busy professionals you don’t always have the time
or the knowledge to create these systems.
I can help you take control of your life so you can focus
on the important things.
Being organized isn’t just about tidying up that messy
desk or putting in a new closet organizer. It’s about
designing systems to remove barriers and bring clarity to
It’s also about saving you time and money.

are not alone. We live in a world with too much stuff and
not enough time.
There is nothing wrong with stuff if you have places to put
it. But if you don’t, your stuff can become piles of
clutter and a source of stress.
This slows you down and costs you time and money. That’s
where I come in.
Let me help you clear the clutter so you can take control
of your work and life and manage your time and tasks to achieve
organized is in my bones
As a child, my toy box was a study in organization. Everything
had its place: the Barbie dolls were on one side, the doll
clothes were close by and neatly folded, and each toy had
its place. Nothing was ever left on the floor.
Even as a teenager, I was organized. Each morning was timed
so that I would arrive at the bus stop two minutes before
the bus arrived. If that meant standing in the porch of my
house for ten minutes all dressed to go with my books in hand,
then that is what I did.
I think it was my mother’s influence. She was a librarian
and I think organizing came naturally to her. Everything had
a place. Lists were made, followed and – if appropriate
- used again the next year.
I grew up being organized and it wasn’t until I was
an adult that I knew there was any other way. I love organizing
and my hope is that one day you will too!
