Barb | Professional Organizer in the Shuswap and the Okanagan


My name is Barb and I am a professional organizer. When my husband and I moved to the Shuswap in 2017, my dream was to launch a small business that would utilize my experience as an engineering technologist in the energy industry. I am fortunate to have a natural affinity for organization, but I also learned that I could teach this valuable skill to the junior techs I mentored and coached over my 34-year career. Managing projects or tasks with intention, purpose, and a systematic approach encourages the successful completion of a project or task.

When a close friend told me about “organizing” for the home or office as a full-time career, I knew I had found an exciting opportunity - helping people and businesses conquer the clutter by designing sustainable solutions for their unique organizing needs. I knew that the same principles I had applied in my technical career can apply everywhere else!

I enjoy working with clients to simplify their daily lives by creating efficient and functional spaces, while offering ongoing support and resources so the plan I design can be easily maintained. Whether a busy family looking to increase function and flow, a retired couple who requires patience and encouragement through the downsizing process, or an overwhelmed business owner who cannot get a handle on all of the paper – InSite Organizing provides the means for people to streamline and cope.



My Approach

As a professional organizer, I provide the guidance and education to allow clients to achieve their specific organizing goals - all without judgement. With direction and support, I motivate people to reduce their overall stress and anxiety by gaining control. I help people understand how they can live successfully with less and grow to appreciate, with a willingness to maintain, a clutter-free, organized space.

I am a proud member of the Professional Organizers in Canada, through which I received specialized training in home and office organization. I am bound by a strict code of conduct and ethics, meaning that all clients can expect both respectful treatment and complete confidentiality.

I carry professional and commercial general liability insurance.


Let’s work together!
