Jessica’s journey to interior design wasn’t exactly linear. She has been a multi-disciplinary artist since she was young, but ultimately gravitated towards psychology as an educational and career path in her desire to help people. While studying psychology and English literature at George Mason University, she was a designer at garden center- specializing in outdoor living spaces. During that time, she fell deeply in love with the integration of plant life, natural materials and artful details in the design of outdoor spaces. She experimented with integrating these philosophies into interior spaces- to create a deeper connection with nature and to improve her mental and physical well being. This ignited a passion that sent her back to school to formally study interior design. After returning to school, she worked as an interior designer for an award winning design firm in the Washington DC area to hone her skills and continue her hands on education.
As CEO and principle interior designer at Lotus and Lilac, she specializes in organic inspired, modern interiors that are holistically designed. Jessica is passionate about creating artful and functional interiors and outdoor living spaces that support her clients’ physical and mental well being. She takes great pride in truly listening to her clients’ needs and dreams in order to create environments that support and represent them fully.
While renovating and designing her own home in the DC suburbs, she began to get more requests for her design expertise and formally launched her own business in 2016, right after giving birth to her daughter. In 2018 she relocated to Philadelphia with her family, and currently lives in Abington, Pennsylvania with her daughter and husband. When she isn’t busy running her design business, you can find her painting and creating, reading psychology and design books, tending to her indoor and outdoor plants, vintage shopping, practicing yoga and exploring the outdoors with her family. She is a member of the Interior Design Society and is currently studying for her Well AP certification, to further her knowledge of sustainable and healthy design.
