The K-Kan Story:
Organizational skills must be in my DNA – when I was five I caught the school bus and headed off to the first grade with an over-sized, compartmentalized, brief case in hand.
At an early age I used to organize family entertainment events using items from the 1904 house I found in the attic as props and making costumes out of sheets, towels, toilet paper, old hats, cardboard, and otherwise discarded or forgotten items. When my siblings tired of my staging, I enlisted ‘neighbor’ kids, which lived a half mile or more away, as well as young nieces. I stole my best works from the examples of Carol Burnett, Red Skelton, Martha Raye and George Burns. The endings of our skits were patterned after their uttering wonderful and gracious words about the health or harmony of the world, and the respectful of the flag and support of our nation.
After attending college earning a degree in Business Development Marketing I gained positions as product representative, technology sales, and in account management. Many year later, due to a layoff at the technology firm in which I worked, in 2009 I found myself searching for a new path. Soon after that storm, while I was pondering my experiences, my talents and realizing that I enjoyed helping and organizing, my phone started ringing. It was former colleagues who’s support staff had been laid off. They all were asking Kay ‘can’ you help me ? One former colleague would inform another, that Kay ‘can’ help, then my assistance services moved outside the technical arena into the general sector.
Later in 2009 “K-Kan Incorporated” became a registered corporation and has been working to support executives, organize homes and offices, prepare for or unpack from a move, assist various organizations with marketing efforts and help with accounting and data entry.
Since then I have taken project management classes, became a certified organizer as well as started working with Elfa closet designs all while continuing to serve as an assistant to select technology personnel and futurist.
K-Kan provides home, office and record organization.
Remember when you, for whatever reason, can’t ‘K-Kan’.”
