New Hire Collage

Story:

Please welcome Gretchen and Jaelyne to the Bailey Edward team! The two newest women of the Chicago offices both push their passions to the limits and we are excited to have them on our team.

Gretchen Miller joins us as the newest member of the Interior Design team. She studied Psychology at the University of Iowa, followed up by a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design from Harrington College of Design, now a part of Columbia College here in Chicago. With over 12 years’ experience, Gretchen has designed interior spaces for workplaces, restaurants, hospitality, residential, and more! Gretchen is a creator at heart and when she isn’t at work, you can find her making music or costumes to match her favorite movies and tv shows.

Jaelyne Kirkpatrick joins us fresh from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Architecture and led Fighting Illini Varsity Women’s basketball as team captain. She represented her home country of Canada as a student athlete on the Canadian Women’s National Basketball team, playing in three FIBA AmeriCup Basketball Games, a FIBA Basketball World Cup Games, and a World University FISU tournament. Jaelyne is not confined to the courts. She loves to get outside to hike, kayak, camp, fish, and rock climb; anything that allows her to push the boundaries of her comfort zone!
