About 

Jessica has over 20 years of experience in architecture, design, and construction, where she has worked on multiple building program types and scales, including high-rise residential, commercial, biotech, academic, office, and fine arts institutions. She has served as the project lead on teams consisting of architects, associative consultants, owners and contractors through design inception, planning, coordination, construction, and final project completion.

Her involvement with several renowned LEED projects, including the first LEED Gold residential building in greater Boston at 75 Station Landing, while at Elkus Manfredi Architects, and the first LEED Platinum mixed-use retail complex in Hangzhou, China designed with the former firm of Wood + Zapata, speaks to her commitment to responsible and sustainable design.
