Catherine grew up in the deep South before moving to Boulder, Colorado in her mid-teens. After attending the University of Colorado, she worked and travelled around the world before landing in New York City where she attended the Art Students League studying Stone carving and Oil painting.
Catherine and her husband moved to Portland, Oregon in 2002 where they are raising their two kids, dogs, a cat, bees and one Zen-like Bearded Dragon. She loves design and helping to create a beautiful space. “I find that through helping people organize, they regain a sense of control, time and freedom that may have been out of reach for some time. It is very therapeutic for them and gratifying to witness.” In her spare time, Catherine likes to read almost anything she can get her hands on, going for runs, gardening, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
What Our Clients are Saying About Catherine
“Catherine did a WONDERFUL job. I give her 5 stars. And if I could, I’d give her 10! She was very patient with me and I never felt judged. I am looking forward to our next session.” J.L.
“This was my first experience in receiving services from Organizers Northwest, and it won’t be my last! I was able to get an appointment in the same week I called, and Catherine came to my workplace’s parking lot to organize and clean out my car trunk while I worked. I was a little nervous and ashamed about the overabundance of junk in the trunk, but Catherine set my mind at ease and got to work out in the elements. A little over an hour later, Catherine called me to come down and see, and it was a great relief to see how everything that was retained had a place in the trunk that made perfect sense. It seems that it won’t be too hard to maintain. I’m a very satisfied customer! Thanks, Catherine!”
“I had such a good experience working with Catherine. She was just SUPERB!”
Thank you for sending Catherine my way. She is fantastic!
“Catherine and Allyn were AMAZING just like always, thank you so much!!”
“I can’t thank you enough for suggesting that I get support from organizing consultant, Catherine Dart. She helped me to clean out 138 lbs (!) of documents (for shredding) during the move from my home of 30 years to a better new home. And it only took half a day – such an emotional load to leave behind. We stayed on task and Catherine handled our meeting with grace, even as we considered the best way to proceed with safe social distancing. Her help meant far more to me than I can express! I’ve used an organizing consultant in the past that lacked the diplomatic touch Catherine displayed. Catherine made me want to do more and always with a light touch. I hope to use her services in the future.”
