Jennifer earned a Bachelor’s Degree of Art in Interior Design in 2009 from the Art Institute of Charlotte.
Before joining the Hazelwood Construction team, Jennifer applied her talents as an Interior Designer at a local architectural firm. Jennifer continued her career in the construction industry in sales at a local building products distributor. As an interior designer, Jennifer not only guides our clients in the selection of finishes such as granite, tile, and paint colors but also takes into account the functionality of the space, the design of traffic flow, and the intended use. With these considerations Jennifer designs the space specifically tailored to our clients, and does not merely decorate the space.
Jennifer brings a talent of unlocking unseen potential in our clients’ homes and offices. By her ability to see past what is to what could be and helping our clients navigate their needs, she leads the effort in transforming houses into homes, and offices into productive centers of business. Her impeccable attention to detail and elegant solutions to otherwise difficult design challenges bring unmatched service to our clients.
Jennifer enjoys spending time with her husband of eleven years, and their two beautiful children, Zander who is three and Charlotte who is one. You will more than likely find them on an adventure at Riverbanks Zoo, grilling out with their friends in Beaufort, SC or planning their next getaway to the Caribbean.
Jennifer is an active member of Business Networking International in the Forest Acres Chapter.
