What Clients are Saying
We are busy running several associations and don’t have time to file. As a result, our offices ended up too littered with case file boxes, papers piled up, and publications scattered around to hold meetings.
Kathleen first transformed our offices, then overhauled our filing system, and then the storage room. My colleagues and I found her professional and conscientious. Our new offices are now a great space to meet members.
Richard Lyall, President and CEO, RESCON
Working with Kathleen was awesome! I hired her to work on getting my digital files in order, a mammoth task split across multiple cloud storage and hard drive locations. She’s a great listener, takes feedback well and is really enjoyable to work with. She knew when to make decisions and when to check in with me, and kept a great determined attitude through some tricky and time consuming aspects of the projects. My new file system started making things easier from the get-go. Thank you!

My office was cramped and difficult to work in; it’s now spacious and welcoming. I’m more productive and better able to collaborate with my students. I feel better when I come in each day.
