Our Founder

Hi - My name is Hillary, thanks for stopping by!

I'm going to tell you a little bit about my background and how The Tidy came to be.

I am a University of Alberta graduate with a BSc in Human Ecology and minor in Residential Interiors.

Say WHUT?!?

By definition Human Ecology is "an interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary study of the relationship between humans and their natural, social, and built environments". Basically, my focus was on the environments people surround themselves with in their everyday lives. As for Residential Interiors, that one is fairly self explanatory. I studied things like the elements of design, environmental & sustainable design, drawing & drafting, decor, space planning etc etc.

After an un-inspiring Interior Design Internship, I took a good hard look at what aspects of Human Ecology and Design I was actually passionate about. I not-so-quickly (2 years post graduation) came to the realization that I loved helping people see the potential of the spaces they spend their lives in. By melding my education and interests together, The Tidy was born.

I am beyond excited to help you find the balance, mindfulness, and usefulness out of your space that you deserve.
