As far back as I can remember I have loved to write and create.
When I was in grade three I was asked to write a story about the Great Horned Owl and I remember feeling so elated. Using my imagination and creating something out of nothing was intoxicating! Maybe it was my teachers confidence in me, or the natural love I had for the craft, but I continued to write, and write and write throughout elementary school, high school and into my adult years.
When I started my own business almost five years ago I began helping people become more organized. Double Take Organizing grew out of a passion to help others with this problem. What I discovered is that while I loved the business and I loved to organize, I missed writing and I missed the joy it brought me. I also realized that for business owners, time to run and market their business effectively is one of the biggest issues they struggle with. So why not create a company that allows me to indulge my love of writing and creating and also helps solve this problem!
Over the last two years I lost both my parents. I don’t tell you this for your pity but that it solidified for me that life is short and I need to follow my passion.
Prior to starting my business I worked in Public Relations, as a News Writer at The Weather Network and I am a graduate of the Journalism and Communications Media Advanced Program from Mohawk College. I have been published in Getting Organized Magazine, Durham Parent and other Metroland publications and I have been blogging for the last ten years. In 2013, I was named one of the Top Toronto Mom Bloggers for my organizing blog http://www.doubletakeorganizing.wordpress.com.
You can check out my how-to guide on Amazon called, Double Take Closets, and I am currently working on my first novel. A romance/action book with some crazy twists and turns. I can’t wait to complete it!
I am an idea person, a creative and I am also very organized. I can’t wait to put those skills to use, creating some amazing content for your business!
