Just like her clients, Alison has had to deal many of the major Life Stressor events. She understands that this can force us into difficult situations and choices, that show up as procrastination or disorganization. She has personally dealt with bereavement, estate clearance, divorce, downsizing, and emigration. It is this valuable real-life experience that has given Alison a TRUE understanding of how organization can free our minds, change our energy and let us move forward with our lives.
Alison's experience was thoroughly grounded in administrative and financial systems and processes for many years with a Municipal Council. Incorporating those skills led Alison to using her warmth and sparkling personality to develop customer services intiatives. From there her strong interpersonal skills led her to a high profile public relations and marketing position with national exposure. This work experience gave Alison a strong grounding in systems, processes and being critically organized to work to press deadlines.
Alison has a first class honours degree (BA Hons) in Business and Management from Hull University Business School (UK). She is currently a student at the QC Design School working on the Advanced International Organizing Professional qualification.
Apart from organizing Alison's other passion is when she is creating; gardening, writing, art, and photography are her favourite way of expressing her creative flair. It is this fun, fresh and adaptive approach and 'can do' attitude, that Alison brings to her clients; helping find unique and bespoke solutions for their challenges.

I need to do a little celebrating about Allie Double. Allie offered her serviced as an organizer and I of course jumped at the opportunity! My life is very busy, as most peoples are and I didn't think my office was in too bad a shape BUT having spent 5 delicious hours with the wonderful Allie I can now say its in tip top shape. Allie was very professional and respectful of private affairs, she double and triple checked with me to make sure I wasn't getting rid of or shouldn't I keep certain items that I might regret dealing with later. Together we worked through a multitude of area's, nothing was avoided or missed. 3 large bags of shredded paper and 2 big boxes to good will and 1 armful of things to be used at work later and VOILA the weight and burden of things cluttered and left undone is GONE!! Thank you VERY much Allie...you are wonderful. — feeling thankful. Andrea – Maple RIdge

Wow!!! I feel amazing. Really this has been a milestone day with you!! I feel so elated and excited. Wow!!! Wow!! I had absolutely NO IDEA I would feel like this today. I haven't stopped doing stuff since you left. I went to the store and got something for dinner, then talked to a friend all about how wonderful you are, then took the books we cleared to the little 'free library', then started my homework and am still working on that. Holy moly what an incredibly productive day!! I truly have no idea how this will change things for me. How can I thank you enough for all you've done! There are really no words Allie. You are Heaven sent. No doubt. Bless your HUGE ENORMOUS WONDERFUL heart!!!

I can breathe. I can think! We love our new working space. Our busy little outreach office serves as an office, meeting room and storage space. There never seemed enough time outside of day-to-day program requirements to sort and organize new resources and files! In one day, Allie's straightforward, logical approach has transformed that mess. Our small office is now a comfortable place to visit. Time is saved when resources and file are totally accessible according to their use. I found Allie very mindful that the office is our working space. She was always careful to check before making changes and to frame any organizational issues so that it was easy to make decisions where procrastination and avoidance had once blocked progress. Thank you Allie for bringing your non-judgemental, positive energy to the re-organization of our little outreach office.
