Allison Parks

Interior Designer

Allison Parks grew up surrounded by a love of design. Her mother is a fifth generation fine jewelry designer, and these family ties to creativity forged Allison’s deep understanding of the impact of design.

Allison earned her Bachelor of Architecture from Virginia Tech as a Pella Prize Finalist, awarded annually to the top undergraduate thesis. She studied in Mexico, Switzerland, and Chicago during her undergraduate years. Her passion for architecture and design eventually led her away from her hometown of Virginia Beach to Chicago, where she worked at several high-end residential architecture offices before joining the JLI team.

In her role as an Interior Designer with JLI, Allison loves developing both architectural and interior details. Seeing her drawings come to life is a thrill.

Allison is an avid surfer and has traveled internationally for competitions. In her free time, Allison can be found at the ceramic studio, frequenting concerts or running by the lake, and of course, planning her next surfing trip.
