Reclaim Your Space
Hi! I'm Leighsa. I began organizing during the beginning of the Pandemic in 2020. Masks and cleaning surfaces have been a way of life since the beginning!
I am a member of the Professional Organizers of Canada (POC) and have just completed the Professional Organizer course through QC Design School. I live in the Napanee area and offer both personal and business organizing services in the eastern Ontario region.
Prior to becoming an Organizer, my employment was spent in diversified environments including the developmental services sector, healthcare, public health, law and education. Regardless of the profession, use of organizational best practices and processes kept me and the people I supported organized.
My education includes diplomas in Legal Secretarial Arts and Early Childhood Education as well as a Coaching Certificate from Leads Canada. I am a life-long learner and continue to sharpen my skills and regularly participate in training and upgrading. I am a natural moderator and one of my best strengths is creative versatility. I am able to produce order in neglected spaces and make sense out of disorganized files . I have worked with professionals, staff, students, Boards and the general public. I have expert-level skills with the Nucleus client database. Other areas of knowledge include:
* Management experience
* Special event planning
* Office restructuring and renovation
* Training in AODA, Diversity, Health & Safety, WHMIS
My outside interests include manufacturing soap and skin products for my other home business; Soap Sisters, refinishing camping trailers and paddle boarding. I bring a fresh approach to my clients along with excellent referrals. I have access to third party experts such as cleaners, tradespeople, removal services and move managers.
I specialize in personal organizational management and working with people who are experiencing or recovering from illness and transitional life events. Changes such as a loss or a relationship shift can result in the need to downsize or reorganize. In addition, I can offer services to support families and workers of people that have disabilities. Sometimes life gets too busy and I also enjoy helping update a wardrobe when organizing a closet and reorganizing a workplace kitchen.
Through discussions with the client I am able to create a vision to record clear and simple goals. In addition, I work with realtors to prepare a home for sale by reducing excess items before it is staged. I can help you to organize most areas including:
* storage rooms
* kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms
* home business areas
* basements, garages and sheds
I especially enjoy organizing paperwork and desks, family recipes, pantries, spice storage, craft areas and linen closets! My teaching and coaching experience over the years has guided me to help teach you how to make decisions about clutter. By focusing on your goals, we will implement a manageable plan to create systems of organization that will be sustained over the long-term.
Hi Leighsa, Thank you so much for your help cleaning out and organizing my office and my car! I was overwhelmed with paperwork, promo materials and samples. With your creativity and attention to detail, what I need is easy to find and easily accessible. Not only did you help me eliminate clutter and excess, but you helped me to eliminate a ton of stress! My productivity has definitely increased because I am no longer wasting time looking for what I need. I appreciate your approach. I needed that 'tough love' straightforward talk, but I'm thankful that you mixed it with gentleness. Thank you again and again! 5/5 stars for sure!

Leighsa was a pleasure to work with. She was a much needed gentle boost to keep me motivated and moving forward toward getting my home sorted out. She kept me organized and on schedule and when she came over, she was friendly and kind. I am now in a position where I feel comfortable in my home and I will be able to move when needed and not have so much STUFF! Thank you Leighsa!
