Emily Koch

Designer

Emily recalls a desire to be an Interior Designer since age twelve. That desire was cultivated through her family’s shared love of architecture and home design. She was always involved in her family’s personal home design and often tagged along during open houses that her parents frequently attended on Sunday afternoons. The passion for design eventually resulted in the pursuit of Interior Design as a college major, and included a semester abroad, studying Architecture, Design and Italian culture in Ariccia, Italy.

After graduating from Auburn University’s CIDA accredited Interior Design program in 2007, Emily moved to Atlanta, GA. While in Atlanta, Emily gained design experience in Corporate Interiors, Hospitality, Mixed Use, and High-End Residential interiors. Design of a newly constructed Spring Hill Suites and Lowes Hotel were among some of Emily’s commercial design projects. Residential projects include everything from full kitchen renovations to custom furnishings in high-rise condos.

Emily joined JCR Design Group in the Spring of 2013. She continues to develop her love for design through each new project. Most recently, she has enjoyed working on multiple commercial office building renovations for a local Real Estate Developer in addition various Residential projects. Currently, she resides in St. Louis with her husband and two young children.

Kristin Kisling Mcgrath

Designer

Kristin and Jenny first began working together in 2008, and realized that their approach to design was very similar. When Jenny established JCR Design Group, it was an easy decision for Kristin to join her. “Not many people have a career that they love and people they enjoy working with: I feel very fortunate to have found both”.

After graduation, Kristin returned to Saint Louis to work for a national furniture company designing visual displays for local stores. Although she had been drawing floor plans and houses since childhood, it was at this time that she realized how much she loved interior design. She returned to school for graduate work and turned her passion for design into a career. Since then, Kristin has worked with several established local designers and grown adept at blending her love of antiques with more contemporary pieces to create unique, fun, and inspired interiors. “Being exposed to different designers was not only great experience, it also helped me cultivate my own style”. Kristin’s interiors are always fresh and inviting, yet each space reflects the character and history of each client and is as unique as they are.

Today Kristin stays busy finding a balance between her design work and raising four teenage daughters.
