Hi, I’m Sheindl Rothman.
I was a practicing Social Worker (MSW) for 26 years. Long ago, I hired a professional organizer who helped transform my storage-oriented basement into a welcoming space. Looking for a project I felt passionate about after retiring from my social work career, I happened upon an inspirational card I’d received two decades earlier: “Every challenge is your teacher. You have learned much. You are now helping others.”
My thoughts turned to my basement experience years ago, and I wondered whether I could help people in that way. Since those early days, I’ve taken courses with the Professional Organizers in Canada (POC) and passed the exam to be considered a Trained Professional Organizer. I participate in Monthly POC meetings and attended the annual POC Conference. I read trade publications and take additional courses which present ongoing educational opportunities. Most importantly, I adhere to the Code of Conduct and Ethics of the POC.
Empathy, patience, confidentiality, and warmth are key attributes in the social work field and in professional organizing. I draw upon skills from both backgrounds to best service my clients in a way that is non-judgemental, confidential, and discrete.
I’ve been an ardent environmentalist since my early teens and avoid contributing to our ever-growing landfill, whenever possible. Not only do I help clients remove clutter, I help them get rid of unwanted items responsibly. These are sold, donated, or recycled. I work diligently to find good homes for obscure items, often through freecyle.com.
Together, we’ll find solutions which work for you.
