Meet THE Team

SO THIS IS CRAZY, Y’ALL!!! When we started The Home Edit, we were just two California transplants who had recently moved to Nashville, introduced by a mutual friend, who both wanted to start an organization company. Now, almost four years later, we have a client base around the country and a team of employees in 3 DIFFERENT CITIES: Nashville, LA, NYC (and soon to be Dallas!)

Which is why it’s time to make some introductions. We love our team members and we’re confident that you will, too!

Nashville:

  • Hometown: Washington D.C
  • As a self-described control freak, I love putting things into their rightful place. Nothing is more soothing to me!
  • However, I’m arguably the least organized member of The Home Edit in their private life
  • I never cry but I cried with joy whilst touring the World of Coca Cola in Atlanta
  • I watched the movie 9 to 5 with Dolly Parton every night before bed in third grade
  • Hometown: Ann Arbor, MI area
  • I hated the snow/cold so moved to West Palm Beach for college, but then I realized I was also not cut out for the tropical weather. So after graduation, I packed up my car and moved to Nashville without friends or a job
  • I thought Nashville would be the best of both worlds, but it turns out to be as cold as MI and as humid as SoFlo but I still love it!
  • I started as Clea’s nanny and during one of her many moves, she realized I could actually organize! This is hilarious to my parents who saw my bedroom as a teenager
  • I am a major homebody and am typically found at home drinking wine, but always down for a game night (when I am not found working!)
  • I am in charge of scheduling and love how putting the schedule together is like an advanced puzzle.
  • Hometown: Cornelia, Georgia but I’ve called Nashville home for ten years now
  • I enjoy eating at Nashville’s latest and greatest restaurants, attending concerts, traveling, and movie nights—complete with popcorn (EXTRA butter!)
  • Married to Postmates, addicted to Bravo
  • No morning is complete without a coffee in hand
  • Although I love the fall (GO DAWGS!), my favorite holiday is Christmas
  • My passion not only lies in organizing, but I also enjoy hosting parties and am known to be the hostess with the mostess
  • I love being challenged every day with something new
  • Hometown: I’m originally from Maryland but Nashville is my forever home
  • My morning routine includes scrolling through Instagram, a cup of coffee, and The TODAY show
  • My current nightly routine includes watching Grey’s Anatomy or some Investigation Discovery show right before bed (which my husband hates)
  • I’m obsessed with my little Yorkie, Indy, although he is the biggest pain in the ass
  • My husband and I recently went to Tulum and every day we talk about when our next trip will be
  • I never understood the saying “Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life” until I started working with The Home Edit
  • Hometown: I’m from the cornfields of Northwest Illinois (West of Chicago) but I’ve lived in Nashville for ten years
  • I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor
  • I have a black cat named Darren
  • I met my husband, Mark, while singing karaoke at Santa’s Pub—a Christmas themed dive bar in Nashville
  • I have been organizing since I was a little one. My weekly mission as a six-year-old was to completely transform the toy aisle in our local grocery store during every grocery trip with my mom
  • I get my love for organizing from my dad. His garage is so meticulously arranged that it is nicknamed, “The Taj Garage.”
  • I love all things rose gold
  • Walking to our neighborhood coffee shop on the weekends is about as athletic as I like to get
  • Hometown: Born and raised in Nashville, TN. I never really knew Nashville was as cool as it is until everyone started moving here!
  • Love a good movie and popcorn. My favorite movie is Parent Trap but no one will watch it with me because I can quote the whole dang thing
  • My favorite food is pizza (mainly Dominoes) but it must be with Ranch. I also love Mexican food, especially cheese dip and a good quesadilla
  • I love watching sports or attending a sporting event. Baseball is my favorite
  • I went to college in Texas at TCU!
  • I love the beach so much I could live there! (30A is my favorite)
  • Hometown: I grew up in NYC and went to college in Mississippi
  • I call my dog Billy, my fluffy son, because I am so obsessed
  • I met my husband in college; he was the houseboy at my sorority
  • I love to travel; my favorite places I’ve been so far are Tanzania and the Greek Islands

Los Angeles:

  • Hometown: I’m originally from a small suburb of Chicago called Lake Bluff, but spent 12 years living in NYC before moving to LA in 2016
  • I’m a New Yorker at heart so I complained about the relentless sunshine for the first six months while everyone around me rolled their eyes. Now, I’ll crack if I see a cloud
  • I was a style editor in NYC so I’ve always loved conceptualizing beautiful magazine pages. Now, I just do the same thing to storage spaces!
  • No matter where I am, I go back to Lake Bluff for the Fourth of July. My hometown has an epic community parade and my dad sets up a cant-miss tailgate in a Radio Flyer wagon. It’s stocked with things like homemade Bloody Marys, crackers and pub cheese and he rolls it all the way to the parade route every year
  • I might be one of the first team members to live in THE’s home city of Nashville! I moved there in 2000 to attend Vanderbilt University
  • Hometown: I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, raised in both Dallas, Texas, and Kansas City, Missouri and have lived in LA for 8 years
  • My dad is Jewish and my mom is Catholic, which makes me Jew-ish?
  • My favorite part of organizing is helping someone love and be at peace in a space that previously stressed them out. A clutter-free space is a clutter-free mind, y’all
  • I love true crime documentaries and if you ever want to discuss them, I’m all in
  • Hometown: Livingston, NJ. In addition to Los Angeles, I’ve also lived in Tucson and NYC
  • My alma mater is University of Arizona
  • I’m newly married with no kids (yet!)
  • My guilty pleasure is Haagen Dazs chocolate peanut butter ice cream
  • My pet peeve is when my husband doesn’t fluff the pillows after laying on them
  • My biggest phobia is pigeons
  • My favorite things are a latte in the AM, wine in the PM, beaches, yoga, HGTV, dogs, walks, and The Bachelor/The Bachelorette
  • My favorite thing to organize is closets and pantries
  • Hometown: Born and raised in Los Angeles, but I’ve also briefly lived in St. Louis, Missouri, Hilo, Hawaii and Tokyo, Japan
  • I moonlight as a calligrapher. Often literally by moonlight
  • I enjoy traveling and my favorite place I’ve visited recently is New Zealand. It’s incredibly beautiful and also home to Hobbiton!
  • You’ve Got Mail is my favorite movie of all time
  • Food is my love language! I love checking out new restaurants and I confess I’m one of those people who take pictures of their food
  • I often use organization to procrastinate because I enjoy bringing order to chaos so much. I find it fun to create practical solutions for other people’s most challenging spaces

NYC:

  • Hometown: West Orange, NJ
  • At the age of 7, I created a business plan to become a professional organizer—dreams really do come true!
  • I have seen 20+ Dead and Company (the modern Grateful Dead incarnation) concerts in recent years and even followed them on tour! (My cat is named Loose Lucy, but you can call her Lucy)
  • My greatest fear? Sharks. In fact, I called them “sha-haaks” for years, as the word alone used to frightened me
  • I love working with our clients to optimize every inch of NYC-living and master small space solutions.
  • Hometown: I’m a native New Yorker
  • I love carbohydrates, movies, living vicariously through Ina Garten, color-coding, skincare, caffeine, and Sunday mornings in NYC
  • Cooking + baking are the wind beneath my wings. 
  • Some call my affinity for Christmas a problem
  • Nothing relaxes me like reading in bed
  • The best part of each day at The Home Edit is seeing the reactions of our clients. It is truly joy personified

  • I’m a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) who is passionate about animal-assisted therapy and a HUGE dog lover

  • I worked at The Late Show with David Letterman as a page during his final year at CBS

Xo,

Clea, Joanna + THE team
