About You

Are you feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, stressed or grieving for your loved one and unsure where to start?

Have you hit a brick wall and need results now? You’ve got deadlines popping up
everywhere…at work, at home and now this project to deal with? You don’t want to spend your weekends or vacation or down time addressing this project when your time is more valuable than to spend it sorting, organizing, packing, finding
resources to help with all the details. Are you thinking about all the things you’d rather be doing or feel you should be doing?

Look no further, we can help.

About Me

Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Soraiya and you have landed on the site, I call home for the last 20 plus years. As someone that cares about grammar, you will notice, most of this website uses the pronoun “we” as when you work with POSabilities, more often than not, you will be greeted with a team of expert organizers, estate administrators, and multiple industry experts who I call the “Team”. However, looking at the inception of this company, it’s my baby and I thought I would tell you my story as I hope one day you will tell me yours.

Growing up, Mom always emphasized “things must go back in their place” – while I often didn’t know the “place”, I certainly learned quickly the “place” had to be found or there would be consequences. And to be honest, I owe my love for organizing to my Mom as for the past 20 something years; I have been helping my clients find their things.

My business name means a lot to me and the methodology behind it. Firstly I believe anything is possible: POSabilities. Second, Prioritize Organize
Systemize; without prioritizing what we need or want, how can we organize and create systems in our lives to reflect that?

I am passionate about what I do and continue to learn and grow from each experience as each client is different and their story is different. Working is my livelihood and I look forward to each experience to make things easier for people who are looking for a streamlined path.

What can you expect when you work with POSabilities?

The POSabilities Team shares the same core values of respect, kindness, non-judgmental and professional in every way. We also work with a team of industry experts including designers, custom storage makers, contractors, appraisers, auction managers, removal services and other professionals, all of whom share the same level of client commitment and core values.

Education, Work and Volunteer Experience

As a true Vancouverite; I attended Douglas “College”, Simon Fraser University and BCIT and studied
psychology, business and marketing. I worked in a
financial planning firm where I gained countless skills and furthermore have spent endless hours volunteering in many capacities from social welfare, counseling and education.

Professional Organizers in Canada (POC) is the
association I am affiliated with and an active Silver and Gold Leaf member and served as the BC Chapter Chair and Director of Membership on the National Board. I
received the POC Ambassador Award in 2012 and the POC Harold Taylor Award in 2016 and earned the POC Trained Professional Organizer (TPO) designation in 2007.

What you need to know from the above is I actively belong to my association that is governed by a code of ethics and believe in growing the industry at every level from leadership to mentoring to volunteering in the community.

Giving back to the community

I have always volunteered; as I was raised that belonging to a community is through volunteering. I learned skills such as project management and developing needs assessment and today is the foundation to serving my clients.

For over 25 years, I have assisted with charitable projects and continue to do so as my business goal is to give back when I can; so if you or someone you know is in need, try me, I might be in a position where I can help.
