Originally from Virginia, Jackie relocated to the Lehigh Valley a few years ago and is active in the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of AIA and is currently serving on the Emmaus Planning Commission, the Emmaus Main Street Partners Board, and is the Chair of the Emmaus Main Street Partners Economic Development Committee.
Jackie has been a designer with a concentration in interiors since 2009 after transitioning from a career working in university admissions. She earned her professional interior design certification in 2015. Thinking about how people interact with the built environment is how she begins every project. Her passion for combining big ideas with practical research and experience has afforded her a vast knowledge of materials, lighting, fabrication techniques, and installation methods to create unique spaces tailored to their users’ needs.
Jackie has a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the Virginia Military Institute and a Masters of Fine Arts degree from the Virginia Commonwealth University where she studied Interior Environments.
