David Youn, Helen Youn and Emerson Youn at Home
Hi there, I am Helen!

Most days you can find me working at a client's home in Calgary and surrounding areas or further when travel is required. Other days I am often working on my laptop at my favourite coffee shops in the city if I am not hanging out with my mini-me, Emerson. 

Even since moving to Calgary, I've really fallen in love with the city and felt at home. In my spare time, I love practicing yoga at local studios, taking various classes/workshops learning new skills, and watching all the guilty pleasures on Netflix. I am also a little bit obsessed with anything food-related so you can find me trying out new restaurants just as often as trying out new recipes.

I am so passionate about the KonMari Method™ because I have experienced the life-changing magic of tidying up firsthand. I found this method as an overwhelmed new mom working in a corporate job that didn’t spark joy and haven't looked back since. You can read more about my story here. 

By simplifying and keeping only the things that sparks joy for me, I was able to focus on bringing joy back into my life. The change was so profound that I decided to pursue training with Marie Kondo in 2016. I became the first Certified KonMari Consultant in Calgary and the Canadian Prairies in 2017 and was the 19th consultant in the world to be certified outside of Japan. I am currently the only Canadian KonMari Consultant Speaker and was selected as one of the first English lecturers for the KonMari Consultant Certification Course.

I am currently a platinum level consultant and am an active member within the KonMari Consultant community. I serve as a mentor and an evaluator working with KonMari Media Inc to help support Consultants-in-training during their certification progress. I am also a member of POC (Professional Organizers in Canada) and am on the executive board of the Calgary Chapter as the Program Coordinator.

Combining my extensive training in the KonMari Method™ with more than 15 years of experience working in Fashion, Design and Marketing is what makes my services unique with lasting results. Using the principles of the KonMari Method™, I have a relaxed but focused approach to guide and support people throughout this transformation. Since becoming a Certified KonMari Consultant, I have spoken on stages large and small sharing this life-changing method. I’ve also been featured as a subject-matter expert in the press such as Avenue Calgary, CBC radio, CTV, Global TV, CityTV, Western Living Magazine, CREBNow and many more.

The KonMari Method™ is an effective way to declutter, organize and transform your home and life into one that sparks joy for you. Through a series of hands-on KonMari Tidying Lessons, we transform your space together category by category to create a clutter free home that is not only easy to maintain but also a space that supports you to live the joyful life you want to live. Tidying is a skill you can learn once you decide to change your mindset and an effective tool to achieve your ideal life. I truly believe this method can be adapted to work for anyone regardless of when they start as long as they commit to the process. Life truly begins after you have put your home in order.
