Delia St. Pierre
Delia was born organized, even as a baby the blankets in her crib were smoothed out and wrinkle free! Her somewhat untidy mother knew she was in trouble when she noticed the doll house furniture was precision lined and the dolls were not allowed to have ‘stuff’ cluttering the place. Being a smart mom she took advantage of this trait and a houseful of busy people were always able to find what they were looking for. Accumulating ‘stuff’ is not a fault of anyone’s, it’s a fact of life. It’s rewarding to be able to help someone declutter and organize their belongings in such a way that they are able to enjoy looking at things they have while feeling a sense of space and calm. It’s also important to understand the needs of the client in order to organize in a way that works for the client and can easily be maintained. Walking into your home or place of work should bring a smile to your face not cause anxiety, and it really is a pleasure to help make that happen. Delia has worked in a variety of fields, from tourism to sport, a lifelong animal lover she will organize your pet’s belongings as well as your own. Whether it’s a garage or a draw, optimizing space that works for you is her goal.
