My 30 years as an Occupational Therapist, facilitating independent, efficient and safe daily living, along with my love for planning and organizing, led me to the realization that I truly wanted to have my own business where I could share my skills and passion for the positive outcomes that results from an organized environment!

I loved the idea of helping others find the comfort and productivity in creating simple, aesthetically pleasing and functional spaces in their homes, as well as assisting folks in the daunting task of getting ready to sell a house, relocate their Senior loved one,  or even just adapting an elderly person's home to stay safely and independent in place.

My passion for Organization came out of necessity after I unexpectedly found myself a single working mother of two toddlers.  I knew I needed to create a home life where my children could have routines and strategies to help them become as independent and as helpful as possible in our day to day living. I used color or picture-coded labels in the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms to help identifying where things “belonged” or were expected to be easily found.

My 5 yo could then help unload the dishwasher  according to the labeled cabinets.  My 3 yo could then help put groceries away into the picture-coded baskets in the pantry or refrigerator.

Color-coded toy bins made for efficient and easy clean up, instilling a sense of responsibility and accomplishment for the kids.

Labeled bathroom bins for each child facilitated consistent and efficient routines, helped avoid misplacing items, and even prevent fighting over items!  In addition, pictures coded schedules encouraged independent morning and night time routines. This, too,  instilled confidence, sense of productivity, contribution and maturity with my kids.

 

The systems I put in place gave this busy and exhausted Mom some well needed breathing room and allowed for more fun family time and less stress in our lives!
