Jessica was introduced to construction and design at a young age, when her dad would take her to visit his construction sites. She has always been fascinated with how people interact with the built environment. Jessica’s affinity for design was evident in her ever present passion for design magazines, visiting show homes, and the relentless redecoration of her childhood bedroom.
Jessica’s career pursuit started out quite diverse to interior design; initially completing her Bachelor’s degree in Human Geography from Simon Fraser University, she then went on to pursue a career in real estate development. It was an increasing desire to work closely with clients that led Jessica to pursue a career in design. She went on to graduate with Distinction from the Diploma in Residential Interiors program at British Columbia Institute of Technology, where she flourished in honing the technical skills behind her creative designs.
At SGDI, Jessica’s interests and studies of human interaction and relationships with their environments makes her an asset, as she is able to effectively apply this knowledge into functional design for how clients will live in their homes.
When not working on home design, Jessica enjoys walking or hiking, as well as just relaxing at home with a good cup of tea … and can be found gathering inspiration in nature on her local beaches and trails.
