Jessica Wilde, Retail Designer
With a love of design since childhood, Jessica has been rearranging her rooms to maximize her space, or helping family members work on rental properties. Another design inspiration came from my beloved grandmother who had multiple rental homes. I would help her remove old musty wallpaper and replace it with a fresh coat of paint or tear out worn-out linoleum and add new tile to update a bathroom.
Wife, mother of two, Jessica enjoys running, cooking, and watching a new Netflix series.
Megan Heyworth, Retail Designer
