Wild at Heart. Rooted at Home.

Align was born out of Paula's refined skill in creating order and beauty for over a decade in Alberta, where she founded, operated and sold Calgary's leading professional organizing company before moving to Guelph in 2017.

She alleviates the overwhelming task of getting organized by delivering strategy, elbow grease and a fresh perspective. Generating the perfect blend of aesthetics and functionality in your space, you'll find her to be an energetic and non-judgmental helping hand. Paula's gift is in asking all the right questions, making it surprisingly easy for you to clear what needs to go, opening up room to breathe and transformation in both your mind and home.

Combining her high attention to detail and customer care orientation with her open and good-natured presence, Paula naturally allows others to feel comfortable being themselves. Life’s transitions are the perfect opportunity to align your space with who you really are, and Paula is here to propel you where you want to go.

When she's not reveling in the potential of disordered spacesyou'll find Paula camping in the wilds of Ontario, gathering with friends over food, cultivating her mediumship abilities, scheduling in meditation but not quite getting there, and daydreaming of her next sun-drenched travel adventure.

Describe your image.

As a busy mom who recently finished a year-long renovation project with her husband on their red brick century home in Guelph, Jessica knows very well how important a clear home space is in maintaining a clear head space. Jess has a proven capability for prioritizing, reliability and focus. You'll find her to be a no-nonsense organizer when it comes to editing spaces and implementing decisions. Jess's hardworking mindset has her operating speedy, strong and quiet, yet she brings such fun to our organizing days with her lighthearted sense of humour.

Jess keeps a meticulous inviting home and thrives on creating this professional finished output in the homes of our clients. She secretly hopes it stays precisely as we leave it, but she understands that we each operate uniquely in our lives and that Align's job is to set you up for success.

 

When not engaged in an organizing project, Jess is a seasoned bookkeeper, as well as provides business support to her husband's thriving landscaping business. She loves staying fit and spending time outdoors with her young daughter, gathering with neighbours, visiting family at the summer cottage and spending winters bundled up for downhill ski trips and daily walks along the river.​

Angela joins the Align crew for bigger projects where a team is needed to tackle a complex task or a large space in less time. She's dependable, attentive, spunky and wise. Her healthy spirit is contagious and her energy level is high.

 

When not streamlining spaces, Angela works one-on-one with her own clients as a Master NLP Practitioner. She's the only certified faith based Neuro-Semantics practitioner in Canada and she's skillful at helping people heal from whatever is keeping them stuck. In home organizing, as in Neuro Linguistics Programming, Angela delights in watching people's lives transform for the better. 

 

Angela recognizes that your life can feel out of control when your space is cluttered. When organizing, she prioritizes being able to find what you are looking for when you need it, and setting up a space that works for how you use it. She knows that living in a calm and soothing environment promotes balanced serene living.

 

As a new grandmother, Angela's days are enchanted by her first grandson and maintaining nourishing relationships with her adult children. In her spare time, you'll find her connecting with friends, knitting, crocheting, gardening, and preserving food.

Join Our Team

We're Often Open to Hiring Independent Contracting Professional Organizers

​​About You

You’re a risk-taker, a collaborator, inspired and inspirational. You choose to work at the cutting-edge and implement solutions that improve the lives of others. You revel in hands-on practical and aesthetic projects and aim to fill your days with movement, connection and meaningful work. You’re an entrepreneur and not seeking a temporary gig... you’d rather develop expertise, work towards managing projects and co-create a thriving professional organizing business. You bring not just fresh enthusiasm to the table, but groundedness, experience, and capability.

 

You adore an organized space and you know how to keep one. Organizing isn’t just something you’re good at, you see potential in every room you step into. You weren’t born to sit at a desk behind a screen. Lifting boxes, climbing stairs and rearranging furniture sound more like an excuse to exercise rather than a chore. 

 

You embody non-judgement and professionalism. You know that active listening along with clear communication are key to your client feeling fully supported, seen and heard. Being invited into a person’s home to see inside their every door and drawer is an intimate experience and you understand that it can be a difficult step for them to take. You are welcoming, uplifting, energetic and really know how to be with people. You know that 5 star reviews come from exceeding expectations, attending to all the little details, gauging where the client is and holding space for that along every step of the process.

 

About Align

Align's abundance and potential are waiting for you. Our high vibe attracts like-minds and because we spend so much time in our client’s home, they become like family.  Work never feels like work when we’re connecting with such lovely and interesting folks in their homes, creating fresh aesthetic and functional spaces, and receiving big gratitude and joy-filled tears in return. Holding client's hands as they change their lives to regain space and freedom really is meaningful work.

 

We’ve garnered a reputation for quality work and outstanding service. With Paula’s 15+ years of discovery and experimentation, Align was built upon organizing methods that create long-lasting results. We’ve created a step-by-step room-by-room guide on how to organize any space you'll ever encounter. 

 

It’s All About the Details

You have weekdays available with flexibility in your calendar and pocketbook to work one day a week or five days a week depending on the season. You have the resources to prioritize both Align’s clients and your own clients/family/personal schedule. We work a 6 hour day in the client’s home, plus hours before and after sessions for donation/recycling/landfill drop-offs and container shopping. Add in driving time to homes in Guelph, Caledon, Erin, Puslinch, Elora, Cambridge, Kitchener Waterloo and surrounding areas in Ontario, Canada. Plus some evening and weekend time for initial client consultations, drop offs and shopping.

 

Align hires entrepreneurs. As an independent contractor, Align is your client and the homeowner is Align’s client. You’ll invoice Align for your time and assemble an organizing tool kit complete with post-it notes, sharpie markers, a professional label maker and handy household tools to bring to every project. As Professional Organizers we follow a code of conduct and ethics, have business insurance, a criminal check, use our cell phone for work, and have no trouble loading our vehicles with storage containers and items for donation, recycling, and landfill.


How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in collaborating with Align. We're always open to hiring. If you think you're the perfect fit, email Paula at alignhomeorganizing@gmail.com with your interest. Tell us in a cover letter why you’re a good fit for this position. In the body of your email, answer these 4 questions:

 

  1. Why do you want to continue working, or start working, as a professional home organizer?

  2. How does this position fit into your current schedule?

  3. What unique presence do you bring to every day? In other words, who are you and what are you all about?

  4. Why would you like to collaborate as an independent contractor and work towards managing organizing projects versus being an employee?
