Success Stories

Before I met Jennie I was overwhelmed with the amount of papers and ‘stuff’ that just seemed to accumulate from out of no where. Jennie taught me a totally new way of thinking about what comes in my house, and how to deal with it so that I can live in a clean and simple space. Thank you Jennie for what you taught me, using your system I can now organize my space with ease, and know how to align my home-organization with my larger life goals. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to learn how to simplify, organize and achieve their life goals to work with Jennie!!!

Jennie is respectful and fun to work with. She kept me focused and I was amazed at how much we accomplished. In two sessions, we were able to change my disorganized kitchen into an organized, working space. I find it’s easy to put things back in the right places now, and I know exactly where things are. Jennie’s system of organizing makes so much sense. I can’t wait until she comes back!

I was nervous at first, I didn’t want to loose control over my stuff. Jennie was very good, it was all very calm. I had control and I started feeling safe in the process. Through the experience I learned that I’m a pack-rat, more than I thought I was. I learned how to let go of things, things that I thought I always had to have. I had always felt very trapped by the stuff, but now I’ve got space. Now I feel like I have more stuff than I had before because I can actually see it, access it, and do stuff with it. Where before, there was so much stuff hidden I couldn’t do anything with it. Now I don’t feel like I’m lacking in anything.

Working with Jennie was a professional, pleasant and rewarding experience. She completely reorganized my paper work into files and established an ongoing approach, how to file things for maximum efficiency, accessibility and productivity. I learned a great deal about the nuances of the organization process with numerous “Micro Tips” I’ll call them, to keep me on track for the future. I am extremely grateful for Jennie’s help. She is truly very professional at this all-important aspect of reducing workload, stress, and anxiety over information organization and ease of access. Thank you!

The services I offer as a professional organizer are deeply connected with my values and how I consciously curate […]

setting positive intentions – walking the labyrinth

Last week I celebrated the new calendar year with a family walk at our neighbourhood labyrinth.  Though cold, we soaked up the sunshine and outdoor beauty to share some quality time together. What I love about the labyrinth is that there is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to walk the path, a true metaphor for […]
