Who I Am

I am a polymath. That means my curiosity and passion for learning lead me into knowing way too much about way too much.

All of that information is useless to me if I can’t use it. 

Hi! I'm Jasmine, but my friends call me JP.

Principal Consultant & Designer

I started college as a piano major, finished with a degree in social work, went to law school and worked in college sports and government. I transitioned to design because it seemed like the obvious next step for a piano playing lawyer. I hope you catch the sarcasm here. My career progression is a direct reflection of my life – passionate about many things and willing to meet needs where I see them.

My parents gave me opportunities and options to choose how I would share myself with the world. They empowered me to full use of my interests and talents, and allowed curiosity to guide me through my academic and career pursuits. After law school, I taught myself the basics of good design and armed with Adobe Illustrator, started a stationery company. Over the years I’ve dabbled in event design, apparel design, and business consulting. I consider myself a close cousin to Johnny Appleseed: I love helping people bring something to life and then skipping on my way to plant more seeds that will hopefully thrive and bloom long after I’m gone.

Even though I’m not currently practicing law, and can not give you legal advice,  I can use the best parts of my legal brain along with my creative brain to help you build something that releases good into the world.

Random Things About Me

Resting in the middle of my analytical + creative brain space affords me a level of freedom I wish more people had. Fighting to stay out of the boxes, labels, and expectations of other people is so important.
Patchwork Atelier is the quilt of my life. These parts, that seem unrelated, are stitched together by a common thread: me.
