When your life is simplified and decluttered, you can enjoy the small moments. Megan Golightly loves what she does and has been doing it for more than 14 years. She has a passion for problem-solving, organizing projects big and small, and working with families to see their homes and lives transformed.  Her goal is to help others feel at ease in their home and eliminate the negative feelings people may have about clutter.

Megan holds a degree in psychology and her on-going study in neuroscience piqued her curiosity on how the brain works in relation to the spaces in our homes.  It’s unhealthy to have nagging critical thoughts about the state of our homes.  Whether or not we believe these words, our subconscious mind does.  Deciding how and where to start can be paralyzing. Megan can help motivate, inspire and uncover the psychology of organizing.

Based in Calgary, Canada, Megan has travelled to work with clients in Victoria, Tofino, Vancouver, Kelowna, Edmonton, Toronto, Los Angeles, Boston, Denver, Palm Springs and Mexico. Two of her biggest passions are organizing and travel.
