Jennifer moved to Wilkes-Barre to join the talented group of architects and designers at Bohlin Cywinski Jackson after graduating from the school of architecture at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). She grew up in New York City, where she explored art and design through creative youth development programs and taught summer design studios to high school students. Jennifer’s passion and background in architecture has been the scaffold for continuing her work on creative projects and her years as a student, volunteer and teacher have deepened her belief in the positive impacts of a design education.
