I first met Julie many years ago through Networking and she knows her business inside and out. She is an expert on organizing and decluttering and speaks to groups about why people have challenges in this area or what is preventing them from being able to get organized. When Julie speaks about her business you know she is an expert in her field. This is Julie’s story.
Almost all the jobs I had before becoming a Professional Organizer have helped to make me better at my job. During university I work in the office of a manufacturing company part time and during the summers. After graduating from university I was a health and physical education teacher. When I became a mom I decided to work part time. I coached gymnastics for 22 years and worked as a sessional instructor at Brock University in the Faculty of Education for 6 years. All these job experiences help me to bring practical experience to office organizing, working with families, residential organizing, filing, developing systems, teaching and speaking about organizing to groups.
I knew about the field of Professional Organizing for about 20 years prior to starting my business. At first the profession was too unknown for me to get into. When I started a family I didn’t want to be running a business. So at just the right time, my contract with Brock University was over and my children were grown up so I looked up Professional Organizing online and found the Canadian Association and jumped in and started my business, Mind over Clutter. I have always been a naturally organized person and love helping people to figure out where they want things to go and how they want things to be,. It has always been a passion of mine . Now I have been in business for 10 years.
