MEET OUR TEAM
Jessica is the Founder and Lead Designer at Jessica Ashley Designs. After growing an award winning luxury weddings and events firm in the Washington DC Metro area with commemorated designs published in Martha Stewart, Washingtonian Magazine, Viva Tysons Magazine, Middleburg Life Magazine, The Knot, and more, Jessica knew design was her passion and top strength. After years of dreaming of starting an interior design business, the pandemic became the catalyst. Friends and family began asking for tips and tricks to improve the interiors of their homes and before we knew it we were rocking and rolling building our portfolio and accepting new clients. Inspired by the world of fashion and art history, we design intentionally to be as unique and fabulous as our clients. No two interiors are the same! We believe in working smarter and more efficiently to create ease and joy throughout the process. People come in as clients but always leave as friends. We know that a design plan must be perfectly executed with grace and hard work. Jessica grew up in Florida and moved to Virginia to attend James Madison University. She is married to her college sweetheart (Go Dukes!) and mama to two daughters, one baby boy, and two rescue pups! As a cancer survivor, she works each day to find gratitude in all things big or small. Questions? Ask away!
Meet Sarah Davenport, Executive Assistant and Junior Designer. Sarah is an avid adventure seeker, always hiking and outdoors! She is our email, spreadsheet, contracts (and more) guru. She has an uncanny eye for design and combines that with an incredible work ethic! When Sarah is not assisting with "all of the things," she can be found at Target, with a Starbucks in hand. Connect with Sarah: firstname.lastname@example.org
Meet Joanna Ginder, Associate Designer, Lead Paint Consultant and Muralist/Airbrush Artist. An artist first, Joanna spent her early career painting and airbrushing in Key West. Most of her professional life was spent in real estate working with both residential and commerical properties. She has an eye for design and loves traditional homes to modern homes. When she's not designing homes you can find her practicing yoga or enjoying a glass of wine at a local winery!
Meet Emily Werner, Associate Designer. Emily grew up in the Northern Virginia area and attended James Madison University. Emily is all about the design and perfect planning of interior design. Since childhood, Emily has had a passion for all things fashion, fitness, and design.
