“Jerri helped restore and renew the wonderful Art Deco-style Cerrito Theater. Jerri was absolutely dedicated to doing it right, and fought to preserve historic elements and recreate historic colors and lights. She helped make the theater a great place to see movies today and remains very active in the Bay Area's preservation community.”

“We were impressed with how Jerri helped us figure out what needed to be done 'to bring our house into the 21st Century.'  Her presentations of alternative designs to design challenges helped us imagine what could be accomplished.  Her commitment and responsiveness became apparent during permitting, bidding and construction phases.  Her ability to navigate City permitting, structure the bid process, and work with the Contractor eliminated the uncertainty we felt during our large remodel.  It also resulted in the project being completed early and within 10% of agreed construction price.”

“Now that we live in our home, we are happily reminded of her insights and expertise on a daily basis.”

“I have worked with Jerri on committees of the Alameda Architectural Preservation Society (AAPS) and the California Preservation Foundation for several years. Jerri has been instrumental for AAPS Preservation Awards in utilizing her knowledge of architectural preservation. She really inspires members of the community to honor historic resources.”

“Jerri and I coordinated on the interior design of Unity Center of Walnut Creek of which she was the principal architect. She did a great job with a limited budget and a challenging city planning commission. Working separately on finishes for the building, I was amazed at how both her selections and mine came together perfectly. She kept us all on budget in accordance with her mandate. Jerri is a real professional and I would recommend her for all types of building projects.”
