Susan is a Professional Organizer in Montreal who founded her business "Organized Success" in 1999. As the wife of a very busy physician and a mother of four, Susan understood, very early on, the importance of leading an organized life. A teacher by profession, Susan began by teaching Organizational Workshops at the Ben Weider Community Center. What started as a series of three workshops grew to a series of six, given annually in the spring and in the fall. From these courses a need arose.
"It wasn't enough for students to learn about organization in the classroom," claims Susan. "They wanted me to come to their homes and offices and walk them through the steps. My greatest satisfaction comes from watching my clients master the art of becoming organized. I don't do it for them," Susan says. "They learn to do it for themselves!"
Susan has been featured in many newspapers and has been a guest on CBC's "Radio Noon" and CJAD's "Tommy Schnurmacher Show." She has appeared on Global TV's "Pulse News" and "In Montreal."
Susan has a special relationship with each of her clients and has yet to meet anyone she could not help to be better organized. "Organization is not an end in itself," claims Susan. "It is the key to a much more productive, less stressful life!"
