Born and raised in Nanchang, China, Jie developed an interest in architecture and design from an early age. She was fascinated by how great design can make the world a much better place. Her love for design translated her cross-country move to Los Angeles at the age of 18, where she studied at the Southern California Institute of Architecture. Jie received her Bachelor of Architecture degree and was awarded the SCI-Arc Best Thesis Award. After graduating from SCI-Arc, Jie relocated to the San Francisco area where she began her career as a Designer.
Living just 3 years in the Bay Area, Jie is excited to begin her new adventure in Northern California. A traveler at heart, she loves exploring new places with no particular destination in mind. Outside of the office, Jie can often be found hiking local trails in Oakland or peacefully reading a book while sipping coffee on a sunny day.
