Tara Scott

Founder + lead organizer

Tara Scott has a background in architectural history and preservation, historic property appraisal and house flipping. Tara has always had a penchant for all things neat, organized, and aesthetically pleasing. Her first revelation came when she organized the pantry at the age of 8 and realized that it looked good and made cooking and shopping easier.

She founded The Edited House in 2014 to bring the same joy that she gets from uncluttered, beautiful surroundings, to clients and their homes. Read more about our services here.

Tara was born in Philadelphia and now resides in San Diego, California. Her education includes a BA in psychology from Vassar College and an MS in historic preservation from The University of Texas at Austin, School of Architecture. She is a member of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals (NAPO).
