Owner | Architect
Jessica [AIA | LEED AP | NCARB] received a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Oklahoma, and a Master of Science in Design Research, from the University of Michigan. Her career began as an architectural designer in Oklahoma, designing primary schools at a mid-sized firm. After graduation from Michigan she moved to Rome, Georgia. Once there, she began work with a local architect and they soon became equal partners in CEVIAN Design Lab, an architecture and interior design firm. The rapidly growing firm was awarded projects such as the largest Tennis Center in North America and Historic Infill Mixed Use buildings. CEVIAN offered a collaborative environment where the studio integrated research, analysis, design, and technical expertise to provide thoughtful solutions at the intersection of culture, architecture and the environment. After working for a short time at the University of Arkansas Community Design Center, Jessica was ready to bring the expertise and innovation she learned in Georgia to Northwest Arkansas.
She has been a finalist in the ULI/Gerald D. Hines Urban Design Competition, presented a peer-reviewed paper at the Creating_Making forum, and received a research grant for the design of post-Katrina housing. She loves an opportunity to design large-scale mixed-used development and building reuse/re-visioning projects and has recently been working on net zero housing design. She believes that designing creative solutions to spatial conundrums, within the client’s budget, is a welcome challenge.
Jessica is a registered architect and a licensed realtor. She is a member of the American Institute of Architects, the National Association or Realtors, the Urban Land Institute, and the Congress for New Urbanism.
