Who is Decluttering Diva?

Hi, I’m Kristina Duke, the head of Decluttering Diva.

I am mum of three wonderful kids aged 15, 17 & 20 and a wife to a husband who drives dangerous goods trucks for a living, and with 3 of them diagnosed with ADHD, you can imagine our lives and schedule are pretty crazy.

When I’m not decluttering homes I enjoy singing (hence the “diva” name), DIYing around my home, hanging with my friends, continuing my studies, op shopping and when I have spare time I love to read (especially books and magazines about organising!) and binge watch Netflix.

Professional Development:

Achieved 3 x Level II Specialist certificates in ADHD, Chronic Disorganisation and Hoarding.

As part of Kristina’s continued studies she chooses to learn through the Institute of Challenging Disorganization (ICD). This non-for-profit organisation that provides education and training to professional organisers and related professional working with the chronically disorganised population.
