Hi! My name is Helen, a name I chose for myself (after Helen Keller) at age 9 when my family and I moved from Taiwan to Canada. I lived in Toronto for about 20 years before moving to Calgary, where I currently call home and love with all my heart. I am married to David Youn and our son Emerson may just be the cutest kid in the world.
I am the first and only Certified KonMari Consultant in the Canadian Prairies. As a busy mom myself, I have experienced first hand how valuable this method truly is. By transforming your living space and committing to tidying up once and for all, you can achieve a relaxing home that is easy to maintain and create a lifestyle that will bring you the most joy.
Life truly begins after you have put your house in order.

With a six-month waiting list, her KonMari Method™ of decluttering and organizing has become an international phenomenon. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up is a best seller in the United States, Japan, Germany, and the UK, with more than seven million copies sold in over 40 countries.
The KonMari Method™
The KonMari Method™ is widely regarded as a new approach to decluttering based on Japanese values.
Kondo’s KonMari Method™ is attracting worldwide attention and is being implemented by readers, who are “Kondo-ing,” or tidying up, their homes. Belongings are acknowledged for their service and thanked before being discarded, if they no longer spark joy. People are drawn to this philosophy not only due to its effectiveness, but also because it places great importance on being mindful, introspective, and optimistic.
