Passionate about social interactions and the place of humans in our society, she has specialized in sustainable development and universal accessibility since her schooling. Jennifer is convinced that architecture must be designed first and foremost FOR and WITH all citizens, particularly through the Integrated Design Process.

She is very attached to the development of projects in urban environments, and has completed numerous collective and social housing projects, and won several competitions between France and Quebec for projects proposing collaboration and community spaces, such as: the Vallin-Fier eco-district, France, C40-Reinventig Cities Montreal, the Vaudreuil-Dorion municipal centre, and the Lab-École in Rimouski. As a new associate at L’OEUF, she takes advantage of her numerous collaborations with municipalities, entrepreneurs, designers and engineers to include in her practice her global vision of all issues related to architecture.
