I'm Jennifer.

Profile

Seasoned footwear designer with a particular focus in the technical development of shoes from inception to commercialization. Correcting product in its prototype phase and being able to identify both the problem and solution was always a point of interest throughout my design career, which ultimately led me down the path of a more technical perspective within the footwear industry. This digital portfolio is a tool to highlight my extensive experience in women's footwear both aesthetically and throughout a range of different price points. I am a "bigger picture" type of person who can execute seamlessly from start to finish. A born and raised New Yorker with a passion for both form and function, graduating from Parsons The New School for Design in 2008 with a BFA in Fashion Design. Incredibly motivated and detail oriented; adaptable to whatever the project at hand is. I love a challenge and can hustle like no other. Firm believer that there is always room to grow and learn from every opportunity.
