Whether working as an owner’s representative or a consulting architect, she is passionate about the process. She is fascinated by cities and the complexities of designing in urban settings.
Jacquelyn is a Maryland native and her career began with the design of a large teaching hospital in Baltimore. Later, in New York, her work focused on retail, hospitality and healthcare design. Now she has come full circle with her work at LSY, once again designing spaces for scientists. In her personal time, Jacquelyn volunteers with The Neighborhood Design Center to help communities address affordable housing and food insecurities. She is also an avid supporter of the performing arts, especially ballet and theater.
