Jennifer's story began with her parents and three siblings in a 1,000 square-foot home in a small town in Oregon. Despite her modest circumstances, Jennifer's desire to frequently redecorate her tiny room was hardly limited by budget -- her creativity and passion for decorating as well as her strong work ethic allowed Jennifer to make the most of whatever is available.
Together with her sister Erica, Jennifer grew up picking strawberries, working at a department store and cleaning houses as a teenager. Her desire to create beautiful spaces that don't cost a fortune led to the launch of her award-winning interior decorating firm, Jennifer Adams Design Group in 1999, in Portland, Oregon.
She launched her popular Jennifer Adams Home bedding products in 2009, which was picked up by Costco.
Jennifer moved her firm Jennifer Adams Worldwide to Scottsdale, Arizona in 2011. Their products expanded into additional categories including furniture, apparel, fashion bedding, cleaning products, area rugs, bath accessories, pet products scented home accessories and more.
Jennifer's TV presence began as the lead designer on HGTV's "My First Place" and she's now the design expert on Hallmark Channel's "The Better Show." Her articles and weekly newspaper column "Ask Jennifer Adams" appear in major newspapers including The San Diego Union Tribune, The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Dallas Morning News. Jennifer's new book Bedrooms that Inspire Rest, Romance and Relaxation was released during February, 2014.
Jennifer believes in the power of giving back and inspiring the passion through education and opportunity for youth in need. She spent many years working with national organizations with comprehensive troubled youth programs, particularly Self Enhancement Inc., (SEI) in Portland.
Coming from humble beginnings herself, Jennifer understands the impact mentors can bring. She relates well to the kids of SEI and their families, and has committed to offering internships for students and support for SEI's entrepreneurship programs.
In addition, Jennifer Adams Worldwide recently launched an initiative to provide bedding to people in need through SEI and worldwide. She also provides office space to other charities.
