Born and raised in Alaska, one would assume a warm and sunny place would top JJ’s bucket list of travel destinations. But instead, she would like to visit one of the few places colder than Alaska: Antarctica. Architecture brought JJ to Chicago and where she enjoys the opportunity to translate buildings to people. She earned both her Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Design and Master in Architecture from Montana State University-Bozeman and after that spent some time in the non-profit world. She continues to volunteer and work with Chicago youth interested in design and architecture but has found marketing to be a great architecture-tangent balance of all her talents.
JJ has a piece of laminated paper certifying her to drive a 15-passenger van, with which she picked up Frank Ching from the airport.
