I’ll be on your side through the stressful and tiring process of decluttering, downsizing and/or moving. We will take the time to plan, visualize, and make you feel comfortable every step of the way.
Working with seniors in the community has brought me joy and satisfaction for over a decade. I love connecting with older adults and helping improve their lives. When I saw the opportunity to apply my skills and experience to help people in a new way – through organizing, downsizing, and moving – I jumped at the chance.
I could see the value in the service Downsizing Diva provides and what I could bring to the table. My education was in designing therapeutic programs for older adults that consider the aging process’s physical, mental, and spiritual perspective. This led to a career as a program coordinator in Community Services and a supervisor in the Adult Day Program. I also worked in Supportive Housing and Long-Term Care Homes. This experience helped develop a keen sense of daily life for my clients, compassion, patience, empathy, and understanding.
I am detail-oriented, good at planning, and love organizing. I am excellent at building relationships with clients, supporters, and suppliers to execute many moving parts. I am happy to do this work for people who don’t love it like I do.
With my hands-on experience working with seniors and extensive Move Management training I will help you through the entire process with respect and support.

From a Client...
In July, 2022 I found myself in the position of having to move from my home of 36 years into a smaller home on very short notice (4 weeks)!! I looked at the accumulation of 36 years and had no idea where to start. A friend recommended a company called “Downsizing Divas”, who would sort all my possessions into ‘keep, donate or toss’ items, box them up, arrange transport to the new location, and unpack the items at the other end. Must be a mistake I thought. I arranged an interview to get an estimate and discovered that was exactly the service the Divas did provide. Furthermore I was quoted a very reasonable price. I accepted the quote, and met Sri and Jacob who came in and started to ‘downsize me’. Three floors into one in 3 weeks. They were amazing at how quickly they worked and how organized and experienced they were. And they even offered a ‘bonus service’. Several times I looked at what remained to be done in the time available and I panicked, sure we wouldn’t meet the deadline. Each time Sri reassured me - don’t worry, we’ll get everything done. And they did. They moved me successfully, a move I would not have been able to accomplish on my own. I am so glad I decided to hire their services. I’m happily settled into my new home now, and can’t thank Sri and Jacob enough. They are worth their weight in gold!!
I have been thinking about the work you did for us cleaning out my beloved uncle’s apartment. From the moment we met at his apartment, you showed us that you knew what we wanted, to repurpose his furniture and furnishings toward charity, so others could find a use for them. You figured out quickly how to do this and you did it completely and quickly. When we visited his apartment for the last time it was immaculate. Thank you for your great service.
Having lived in my condo for 44 years I felt that it was time to get help to clear out some of the accumulation gathered over so many years. I searched online for an outfit that might be able to help me, and came across Downsizing Divas, with a local site in my area of Toronto. I contacted their office and within a couple of days, one of their divas came to my home. It was a charming lady, Sri Halim, who showed up and she did a wonderful job of cleaning out my bedroom closet. While I am no hoarder, it was still amazing to see what I had accumulated over the years. Sri herself was so kind and helpful and I am happy to recommend her to anyone, like myself, handicapped and a bit older, who feels they could not cope with such a heavy load. I would gladly recommend Sri to help anyone who needs assistance, and I have passed her name on to some of my friends. On a scale of 1 - 10, Sri is a 20!
