Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify, simplify.

~ Henry Thoreau

About Louise 


For as long as I can remember, I have loved helping people. I am also a self-confessed organizing nerd.  During my high school years, I would often talk my best friend into cleaning and organizing her room when I would visit.  Her mom loved the idea, my best friend thought I was crazy!

In 2012, after 20+ years of working in the corporate world, I started Simplify. My goal was simple. To create a business that would put my my organizing + time management skills to good use through services that create meaningful change in people’s lives.  As the Owner + Chief Simplicity Expert, I call upon my years of experience in customer service, administration and event planning to assist my clients in living less complicated lives.  Simplify is truly the compilation of my strengths and passions which I infuse into every client interaction and project.  I’m passionate about helping my clients get back to basics so they have time for what matters most to them.  

I am a member of the Professional Organizers in Canada (POC), The Canadian Association of Virtual Assistants (CAVA) and I am a trained Concierge through The Giowell Group. 





Louise was an absolute pleasure to work with! She came over and helped me clear out the clutter from basically the entire main floor of my house within a few hours. I can only imagine how long this would have taken on my own. I really appreciated Louise’s intuitive attention to detail and her commitment to getting stuff DONE. If you’re looking to get organized in an efficient but easygoing manner – I highly recommend working with Louise.
