ABOUT THE PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZER
Hi, I’m Joanna Petersen. Owner and operator of Space Sense.
I began my organizing journey early. An only child growing up in a chaotic environment, organizing became a coping strategy for me that gave me peace and a sense of control. As I grew up, I carried over this habit into my various jobs and roles and found satisfaction in it’s benefits of increased productivity and reduced work stress.
I started and spent most of my professional career in Toronto, ON which gave me a chance to learn from and work alongside some of the top organizers in the industry. I was given a chance to collaborate with some high end companies and work with a variety of people. I think I can almost say that I've worked in just about every organizing situation you can think of!
I'm certified as an Advanced International Organizing Professional, a current member of the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD) and a former member of the Professional Organizers In Canada (POC) for both the Toronto and Durham chapters.
I am currently pursuing further education in chronic disorganization and ADHD with the Institute of Challenging Disorganization, so that I can better understand the brain and human behavior and how it can translate into better organizing habits and solutions.
