Verified global Canva Expert, natural organizer, patient teacher, and lover of online tech (and cake)

In kindergarten, while my classmates played with dolls and dress up clothes, I could be found sorting marbles and buttons and other items in the drawers of my teacher’s storage cabinet… according to shape, colour, and size.

I’ve always loved bringing order to things in my environment, whether it’s paperclips and gel pens or filing cabinets and websites.

Long before I became a verified global Canva Expert, I worked as a professional organizer specializing in taming piles of paper and creating intuitive filing systems for professionals and business owners.

My passion for organizing has followed me everywhere and makes my life that much easier when the world is stressful. I might not know what’s happening tomorrow, but at least I know where everything is!

An entrepreneur for more than 20 years, I understand the importance of consistency in building a brand, and as Canva expert, I’ve taught thousands of small business owners how to make professional looking graphics in Canva.
