Jennifer is a native of Yazoo City, MS, also known as the gateway to the Mississippi Delta. During her time at Mississippi State, if she wasn’t in the studio, you were sure to find her in the kitchen with an apartment of hungry friends awaiting her latest culinary creation. When she was three, Jennifer sold her dolls for an art set, a creative move that set her up for her career in interior design. Though starting out in residential design, she wanted to fulfill her desire to make a greater impact through health care design. After her involvement in an ADA code project, she saw firsthand many of the challenges those with disabilities face and it inspires her to create 

spaces that can be equally used by everyone. Outside of work, you can find Jennifer binge-watching Netflix with her best friend/dog Bocephus, trying new restaurants, taking a spontaneous weekend trip, or living it up at an outdoor concert.
