“I love seeing the smiles on my clients’ faces when they have reached their goals.  They love their home, office and their lives are progressing in new ways. After completing my B.Ed and HB.Sc. in Kinesiology I taught in many different settings, elementary school, gymnastics, gymnastic coaches and University. I came to a crossroads when my sessional contract was not extended. I was 48 and I needed to find a new path.  I explored Professional Organizing, started my business, Mind over Clutter in 2006, grew it to full time.  I learned through my work that it is never about the stuff but always about the mind.  That lead me to adding Lifestyle Organizing Coaching to my services.”
