Jenn Celestino, IIDA, LEED A.P., NCIDQ, Associate

Jenn’s roots are on the east coast. Originally from New York, she spent much of her childhood between New York, North Carolina and Florida. Raised in an engineering family, she was consistently encouraged to figure things out on her own and learn how to put things together. Nonetheless, she always had a strong creative side and excelled in art and drawing classes growing up. The minute she was introduced to Interior Design, she realized that it was the perfect combination of the right and left sides of the brain. She went on to receive her education from Florida State University, graduating, Cum Laude with a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design.

Jenn is motivated by the opportunity she has to create spaces that have an effect on people. She loves that she can collaborate with talented, creative people – clients and co-workers included! Jenn also has the urge to constantly learn and grow, and feels that if she is not learning then, she needs to make a change.

Jenn finds that she is a little competitive and really enjoys staying busy; it’s difficult for her to be stagnant or sit still so she’s always trying new things and setting new goals. After hours, Jenn is actively involved in the local IIDA chapter and tries to get in a run or a crossfit class every day. She also tries to cook as much as possible – she loves cooking from scratch; trying new recipes and sharing a bottle of wine with good company. Outside of her daily routine, she enjoys traveling to new places and learning about other cultures.

Most of Jenn’s family lives on the east coast, so each year she takes time visit.
