Yaeger Welcomes Jessica Wardle Back to the Firm

There is a new employee at Yaeger Architecture and you may recognize her from the past.  Jessica Wardle has accepted a position with Yaeger after designing in the healthcare sector for 21 months.  Jessica originally started with the firm in 2005 as an Interior Design student at the University of Kansas.  She spent one summer and one winter with the firm and was hired upon graduation in 2006.  Jessica worked as a full-time employee with Yaeger for ten years.  During that time, she was interior designer on projects across many market sectors including hospitality, multifamily housing, corporate, and government.  She was the designer on Parkway Hotel renovation in St. Louis, Liberty at Shoal Creek in Kansas City, and the Renovation of Eisenhower Hall at Fort Leavenworth.

Jessica returns to Yaeger with more healthcare experience, having worked on hospitals and surgery centers both locally and nationwide.  She provided interior design services and specified and procured furniture, artwork, accessories, and signage for clients.

 

Welcome back, Jessica!
