Our Story...


Jennifer McLinko, Founder/Principle Designer

Designer, mother, wife, with a deep love of food, humor, and life. And Star Wars. 

Prior to launching Mise en Place Design, Jennifer worked as a kitchen and bath designer for one of the East Coast’s premier residential and commercial design firms. She focused her education on developing and growing her understanding of design and the visual world, graduating with honors from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a bachelors of science in Interior Design, as well as a MFA in Interior Architecture and Design from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Jennifer has also been an Allied Member of ASID for a number of years.

Jennifer enjoys spending time with her husband and their two boys, as well their two dogs and slightly fat cat. She enjoys living and entertaining, as well as trying out new places to visit and, more importantly, experience.
