Kerith Paterson – Visual Girl Home Therapy
Congratulations to Kerith Paterson, who was presented with the Professional Organizers in Canada Ambassador Award at the 2020 Summit.
The 2020 winner of the Ambassador Award stood out by her demonstrated commitment to POC, the organizing industry, and the work she does in her community.
In her community she educates about recycling and waste reduction which has a great benefit to our environment.
She is a great role model and promotes organizing best practices, demonstrated by a book club she spearheaded which inspires, educates, and mentors other POC members.
Kerith became a POC member and TPO within months of one another, taking the first TPO exam in 2007. After her first client’s husband said her organizing and empathy had “saved their marriage”, she was hooked!! Ever since, it has been Kerith’s mission to bring the benefits of organizing to the forefront.
Kerith is a huge fan of the POC Chapter Chats, conferences, community events, holiday parties, and chapter meetings – essentially anything that brings members together! When the pandemic hit, she encouraged virtual coffee/cocktail meetings, promoted the virtual book club, and rallied nationally to increase connection and membership value. She always makes herself available to organizers, and often calls them directly.
Currently the chair of the BCLM Chapter, Kerith has held the vice chair, co-marketing coordinator, info data manager and member-at-large roles. She has proudly been on the Ethics Complaint Review Committee Supplementary list since January 2020. A Silver Leaf member since 2014, Kerith also has her Foundation Certificate of Study in Chronic Disorganization through ICD.
