I'm Jennifer and have been working as a Professional Organiser for 5 years. I cover the Greater Sydney area and travel around the State if required.
I began my business in 2014 assisting older Australians and their families to declutter and downsize. It became very clear to me early on that it is people's relationship to their possessions that are key, not the items themselves. A relationship often complicated by deadlines, busy lifestyles, physical and mental ill health.
So, my professional development journey began. To my background in nursing I've added studies in Ageing, Chronic Disorganisation and Hoarding from the ICD, and Australian based training in Project Management, Hoarding Disorder, First Aid and Mental Health First Aid. I have recently completed the Hoarding Home Solutions course for Independent Service Providers and am currently undertaking a Certificate IV in Mental Health.
All the while, I have been working with a variety of clients in increasingly complex situations, often requiring teams of Organisers and other service providers. I now assist NDIS Participants and their Support Coordinators to meet their NDIS goals.
I have always believed in the professional standing of our industry, joining the Australasian Association of Professional Organisers and achieving Expert accreditation before its closure in 2017. As a foundation Advisory Board member of the IOPO in the Research & Development role, the joy of being a part of this industry and its growth continue.
With over 1800 hours of client experience, if I am not the Professional Organiser for you, I am happy to help you find one who is. I share some of my thoughts on Professional Organising on LinkedIn or Facebook.
