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
From the moment Kathleen walked into my office, her nonjudgmental, and positive personality, put me at ease. That was 2007, and we’ve worked together many times since then, including in my home.
She arrives ready to work, and is incredibly organized and efficient. Her services are a great value for your money. She has a broad knowledge of the tools that help you to organize… we’re planning our next meeting.
Olga Luftig, Lawyer
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.
Dr. Matt Brower, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Information, University of Toronto
Organizing an office overflowing with files can be a daunting task. Kathleen O’Brien is able to turn what would otherwise be a major ordeal into several manageable parts. Bring on the sticky notes!
Andy Manahan, Executive Director, Residential and Civil Construction Alliance of OntarioAfter years of slowly accumulating paper, boxes, books, binders and supplies, my office needed serious help. Throughout the process, Kathleen helped me make decisions (keep or throw) and advised (and helped me obtain) special storage devices, organizational equipment, and supplies to facilitate the process. What I had left was streamlined, organized, and easy to find. She even reorganized the degrees and pictures on my walls. Throughout, Kathleen was pleasant, tireless and completely focused on the process. She has an absolute gift when it comes to organizing. I never would have done it without her help.
