I have always loved organizing.  I enjoy finding solutions to challenges and improving the way things work.  But sometimes life gets in the way of being as organized as we’d like to be, and it doesn’t take much to become overwhelmed in our own homes.  I know, because I’ve been there.

Through purging and organizing my own home, and sharing my journey on my blog, I came to see that many people are overwhelmed with the clutter and lack of organization in their homes.  I started sharing more organizing tips and helping people take back control of their homes and their lives.

I realized that in addition to helping people online, I wanted to help people organize their homes in person.  So I became a professional organizer.  Now I have the pleasure of helping clients hands on and I love seeing the difference a bit of organizing makes in your lives.

I understand how you feel right now, and I do not pass judgement on you or your home.  Together we will look at what works for you and what doesn’t work, and we will determine organizing strategies that will help you feel better.  My background in adult education also gives me skills to teach you how to maintain the systems we set up.

Our homes should be peaceful and calm.  They should be places where we can relax, and spend time doing the things we enjoy doing, with the people we love.   If you want that for your home, then please contact me.

I look forward to helping you go from overwhelmed to organized!  View available services here.

Code of Ethics I Stand By:

As a member of the Professional Organizers in Canada, I have adopted the following Code of Ethics:

  • I will provide to all people truthful and accurate information with respect to professional performance of duties and completion of contracts. When unable or unqualified to fulfill requests for services, I will make every effort to recommend the service of other qualified organizers and/or other qualified professionals.

  • I will have empathy for the client and the assignment by practising positive interpersonal and communication skills.

  • I will respect the confidential nature of the client’s information, and will use proprietary client information only with the client’s permission.

  • I will maintain an objective manner to promote and encourage the highest level of conduct and ethics within the organizing profession.

  • I will seek to deal with other POC members, professional colleagues, suppliers and employees in a fair and equitable manner, and maintain the highest standards of personal conduct to bring credit to the organizing profession.

  • I will deal openly with those areas that may be deemed a conflict of interest.

  • I will protect the public against fraud and unfair practices, and attempt to eliminate from POC all practices that bring discredit to the organizing profession.

  • I will make a commitment to possess and increase the required knowledge, skills and training to be proficient and relevant in the provision of services.

  • I will extend these same professional commitments to all those persons supervised or employed.

  • I will strive for excellence in all aspects of the organizing profession.

This Code of Conduct and Ethics is a set of voluntary principles and guidelines that each POC member agrees to adopt for the exercise of judgment, self-restraint and conscience. If you feel that a member of POC has violated this code, you have the option of filing a formal complaint in compliance with the established procedure. In order to initiate this process, you may contact POC’s Executive Director.
