Olive showed grace, compassion, and enthusiasm as she worked with a team of 4 professional organizers who assisted for an episode of the Lifetime TV show “Hoarders: Family Secrets.” Her cooperative and gentle spirit demonstrated respect for the family and crew. For the first time in the history of the show, I was confident to leave Olive and the team alone in the house while I shopped for the client. Olive and the crew whet above and beyond to help, encourage, and bless this client—and they even voluntarily returned a few weeks later to completely finish the work.

We love having Olive present programs at the West Milton library! She approaches every situation dealing with organization and decluttering with compassion and grace. Her pleasant and peaceful manner is so refreshing! The attendees always leave with many practical tips and ideas they can implement right away. I sincerely recommend her services!

Our congregation has benefitted from Olive’s organizational skills. She established and maintains our church children’s library; maintains our teacher resource room; and organized a special room for wedding and event decorations. Olive uses her speaking and organizational skills to offer compassion and encouragement to ladies in our church and in the community. She is an excellent speaker for a Ladies Day event!
