TPD Architect welcomes Jennifer Jones as Project Architect. Jennifer is passionate about the practice of architecture and has extensive experience in all phases from concept/planning/budgeting, through design and construction administration. She has worked for 20 years in multifamily housing and residential architecture after having received a Bachelor of Architecture from Auburn University in 2001, Cum Laude. While at Auburn, she participated in the Rural Studio in Hale County Alabama under the direction of Sambo Mockbee and in the Urban Studio in Birmingham under the direction of Frank Setzer and Cheryl Morgan.
Jennifer has always wanted to be an architect. Her mother was a math teacher and her father was an art major. That, coupled with grandfathers who liked to build and tinker, offered her an upbringing of both creative and analytical thinking and doing.
Medical school brought Jennifer and her husband to Birmingham in 2013, where he will soon complete his training and fulfill his long-time dream of becoming an oncologist. They love spending time outdoors hiking, camping and biking with their two boys and Boykin Spaniel puppy. Jennifer is dedicated to the Alabama Rural Ministry, a non-profit organization whose mission is to eliminate poverty housing in rural Alabama. She served on their summer construction staff during college and then on their Board of Directors from 2011-2013 serving as chair in 2012. “My hands-on experience in construction, from mission projects in Central America to re-building my own deck, has made me a better architect – I know how to detail it because I’ve built it.”
