Jill ‘Jet-Set’ Hewes- Associate Partner

Jill began her pursuit of Architecture when she took drafting classes in high school and continued her studies at Philadelphia University. The decision to attend Textile was an easy one. It was a small school that close to Philly but there was no parallel parking required! Even though Jill went to Philadelphia to pursue her degree, she returned to her life-long home in the Lehigh Valley and joined MKSD in 2004.

As Jill’s nickname suggests, she loves to travel! And although she is typically a rule follower that is not spontaneous, Jill has become adventurous in her travels ever since studying abroad in Italy and with the help from her husband Nick. Her first adventure was paragliding off the Swiss Alps. Since then Jill has been bobsledding in Lake Placid, jet skiing, snowmobiling, and swimming with Sting Rays.

Another newer love in Jill’s life is the love of cooking. She went from not knowing what kitchen utensils were called to having Iron Chef nights with Nick.
