Meet Mary!

Mary has been a resident of Burlington for 30 years. Her career has spanned from a legal assistant to events/fundraising/marketing and advertising. Her 40+ years of event planning has given her the experience and skills of logistical, time and project management. For 14 years, Mary has been the sole organizer of an annual Christmas Day Dinner. Her attention to detail in the planning and execution – from fundraising, working with volunteers, food and presents for approximately 500 guests – ensures the success of this tremendous endeavour each year. Mary has been helping families to downsize for years. She enjoys the challenge of dispersing items in a compassionate manner, while donating to worthwhile local charities. A main priority for Mary is keeping items out of landfill.

Meet Pat!

Pat began her corporate career with Domtar Recycling Division as Business Development Manager. After a number of years, she left Domtar to start her own Waste Management Consulting business. Along the way one of her clients asked her to take the full time position as General Manager of a recycling plant. Her interest in fitness and wellness, along with her organizational skills, led to being offered a position with the YMCA of Oakville as a Wellness Coach and Events Co-ordinator. You may have seen Pat around town as a photographer at Snapd Burlington. Pat's background of waste management, her concern for the environment, her management and organizational skills make her a perfect Project Manager for Downsizing Solutions.
