Organizing is my Jam

Jenkins Organizing Services is a woman-owned business founded in January of 2022 by Julie J. Jenkins.

“I’m an entrepreneur dedicated to delivering quality care to every client, from helping to declutter, downsize, and organize physical and digital spaces to planning and consulting. I support entrepreneurs, seniors, veterans, families, individuals, professionals, retirees, students, people in transition, non-profit organizations, & community groups in the East Hants & Halifax Municipalities of Nova Scotia.

I have 18 years of experience as a Business Coordinator, and I’ve consistently met and exceeded my career goals to create a successful business that aligns with my life goals and values. I have 11 years of experience as a Co-Owner and operator of an internationally certified arboriculture corporation while working from home. All while raising my children, I sold two residences, built one house, and pursued photography. Jenkins Organizing Services is here to stay and the sky is the limit.

I currently possess a recognition of mastery of knowledge as a Trained Professional Organizer through the Professional Organizers in Canada, a Certificate of Study in Chronic Disorganization – Level I Foundation from the Institute for Challenging Disorganization®, studies in Psychology from St. Mary’s University, a diploma in Business Administration Marketing from Nova Scotia Community College, and a diploma in Social Media Marketing and Photography from Austin Peay State University.

I’m always on top of my organizing game! I’ve completed the KonMari Method™: Fundamentals of Tidying taught by Marie Kondo. I’ve studied her books “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up” and “Joy at Work, Organizing Your Professional Life.” I’ve also studied Margareta Magnusson’s book, “The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning.”

I’m a strong mental health advocate. I’ve completed the following: 1) Strongest Families Institute’s iCAN program, an educational program based on a cognitive-behavioural approach to stress. 2) Pride at Work Canada’s Safe Space Alliance LGBTQ2+ 101 course, a foundation of understanding of the LGBTQ2+ community for ensuring inclusive spaces. 3) The Mental Health Commission of Canada’s Mental Health First-Aid Certification, to anyone experiencing a decline in their mental well-being or a mental health crisis (not to be confused with a health care professional).

If you are experiencing a decline in your physical and mental health, I strongly advise that you contact your professional doctor and or a mental health care professional. Working with a mental health care professional, such as a registered psychologist, counsellor, or certified life coach, while receiving professional organizing assistance can be life-changing.

If you are interested in my business or want to collaborate on a creative project that supports and inspires others, I’d love to hear from you! I’m always looking to make new connections.

In addition to organizing, I’m also a fan of create arts. I’ve worked as a model and a background performer in film for City Models, Cassidy Models, Actra Performers Guild, and as a freelancer. I also owned a small photography business as a hobby called My East Coast Heart Photography. To view my portfolio click here.
