Jessica grew up flipping through the Real Estate section of the Spartanburg Herald-Journal every Sunday, envisioning the inner workings of each featured home and igniting an early love for architecture and design. This led to an easy collegiate decision, as she chose her dad’s alma mater (class of ’51!), and graduated from Clemson in 2008 with her degree in architecture.
With over ten years of experience across public and private sectors, Jessica has experience on projects of various sizes, ranging from the smallest renovation to an entirely new high school campus. Years later, she has found her home at Teague Studio, doing what she dreamed of doing as a child. She believes that architecture is more than the walls that surround you. It is a relationship with a space and the ability for that space to influence mood. Thriving on positive energy and personal connections, Jessica loves everything about the design process—from the first handshake with a new client (or elbow bump? #COVID) through the rigorous design process, relationships created, and finished product.
In 2019, Jessica and her husband, Will, completed the design and construction of their own home on family land in Inman, where they can often be found chasing their two daughters, feeding the horses, riding the golf cart, or watching Clemson football. Jessica self-admits spending too much time on Zillow (now with a well-trained eye) as she continues her childhood practice of envisioning spaces and gathering inspiration.
