Jennifer has had the privilege of working in Chicago at Wright for seven years. She came to know Wright by way of Rick Valicenti & Thirst, where she interned for two summers. She earned her degrees in Graphic Design and Photography from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Jennifer finds thrill in design fostering the biggest ideas down to the tiniest details. Making beautiful things is a passion – collaborating with other creatives is a privilege. She loves paper, pixels and pine needles – whenever she can, Jennifer likes to rest her eyes from the computer, and hike/run/bike outside and around the country with her husband Dave.
