Interior designer

Associates in Building & Design, Fort Collins, Colo.

Age 25

Jennifer joined Associates in Building + Design as a college intern. After graduation she was hired as a full-time designer. She quickly began working not only on client projects of all types and sizes, but on internal projects as well. For example, after helping to modernize the company’s branding with fresh graphics and a new website and marketing materials, she was asked to take the lead designing a custom home to be entered in the 2013 Parade of Homes. She also completely redesigned a showroom to demonstrate the company’s ability to produce contemporary spaces.

Jennifer is currently serving as event chair for the Northern Colorado International Interior Design Association. She was also named to NKBA’s 30 Under 30 in 2015. As an advocate of the small-house movement, she presented on the topic at IBS/KBIS 2015. Professionally, she is intrigued by the challenge to design these homes to be both beautiful and functional; personally, the movement appeals to her sense of minimalist lifestyle and environmental sustainability.
