Jamie approaches design from the occupants’ perspective by incorporating subtle details that guide them between spaces, enhancing their overall perception. She studied architecture at the University of Tennessee, and then worked at nationally recognized firms in Portland, Oregon, San Francisco and Nashville. She has led both small and large projects including private residences, boutique hotels, rural retreats, restaurants, retail, parks, and educational and cultural institutions.
As a seasoned traveler, Jamie is inspired by local cultures and history, from the cobblestone streets and grand cathedrals of Europe, the bustling markets of Southeast Asia and India, to the utilitarian government buildings and infrastructure of China and Japan. Since moving back to Nashville, she has used her experiences to connect with her clients while bringing a wholistic point of view into her work.
Jamie also understands the importance of teamwork across trades. For her, the most successful and rewarding projects result from a strong collaboration between the client, architect, consultants, contractor and the community.
