Beyond Windows LLC
Jennifer became Beyond Windows, LLC in 2010, a custom workroom creating window treatments and soft furnishings.
Jennifer’s love of fabrics and design came to her at an early age, watching her mother create curtains for her childhood home and costumes for Jennifer and her siblings.
At the age of fourteen Jennifer took a fashion class that was offered through her high school, and she quickly realized she had a talent for sewing. She graduated with outstanding achievements and went on to Design School where she graduated with a fashion degree and awards for Best Suited for Production and Overall Design. Jennifer worked for JoAnn Fabrics as she put herself through school.
As the fashion industry was shrinking in Philadelphia Jennifer decided to continue her career with JoAnn’s, managing many locations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
In 2000, Jennifer left her retail career to start her family which was a dream come true.
Once at home, Jennifer did what her mother had done and began to sew for her children and her home. Soon family and friends were asking her to sew drapes and valances for them. Word soon reached the ears of designers and Jennifer began creating for designers and friends of friends.
Education is an important part of any successful business. So Jennifer enrolled in several classes at the Custom Home Furnishings Academy (CHF) in North Carolina between 2009 and 2010. Today, Jennifer continues her education through the Window Coverings Association of America (WCAA). She is the past Vice President of the WCAA-South Eastern Pennsylvania (SEPA) chapter and a past treasurer.
