Hello and Welcome
Meet Joanne Harte
Hi, I'm Joanne
I am the founder of Systematic Homes and I have a true passion for order, organising, planning and sorting to help life run smoother.
I am a mummy to one fabulous 6 year old. As a busy working mum, I get how hard it can be to keep all the balls in the air. I love sharing the things that work for me, but I also have those days! You know the ones.
It is always nice to get to know a bit more about the person behind a business. I began my working life as a nursery nurse, nannying in North London, I loved working with children and supporting their families to run their home. My organisational skills and creating a calm space for children to grow in was always commented on, especially at those busy times of day, school run and bedtimes. I believe creating the right environment helps to keep things calm.
I went on to travel working at the British pre-school in Heidelberg as the deputy manager, when I came back to the UK I worked as a community nursery nurse and was seconded to do my children’s nursing. These were very happy times, and it was when I started university at the age of 29 I found out I was dyslexic. I felt a sense of relief, suddenly with the right support I was thriving in education. This is why I am such a big believer in finding the right support and systems when we are struggling.
Unfortunately, I never finished my nursing, not because I didn't love it but because sometimes life throws curve balls that mean you need to change direction. I know this is why I have such empathy, understanding, and the ability to support my clients in such a nurturing way. Sometimes we all need to find a new way and I did!
Becoming a mummy at 40, gave me the push I needed to think seriously about how I would get a good work-life balance and that is when Systematic Homes started. I understand that life happens and sometimes we all just need a helping hand, or someone to support us during a busy time and that is what we at Systematic Homes do best.
I am a member of the Association of Professional Declutterers & Organisers (APDO UK)
