About Louise:

Originally from New Zealand, I now call Calgary, Alberta home with my husband and young son. We have lived in Calgary for over 12 years and love the lifestyle here and try to get away to the beautiful mountains as much as we can camping.

Over 5 years ago, I left my well paid corporate job to create The Space Reclaimers, Professional Home Organizing Service. At first, I thought to organize was going to be about making things look pretty, but the more I worked with my clients I quickly realized you need to understand why the stuff keeps collecting in your home, release yourself from the attachment of stuff and implement systems to create a more calm home. Having fewer items, and less stuff creates balance of the mind, spirit and soul. Which I discuss in my new podcast!
