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 on Sunday afternoon open houses with her parents. This passion for design eventually resulted in the pursuit of Interior Design as a college major, and included a semester abroad, studying architecture, design and culture in Italy.
After graduating from Auburn University’s CIDA accredited Interior Design program in 2007, Emily moved to Atlanta. Working with a local design firm, she gained experience in high-end residential interiors, as well as corporate interiors, hospitality, and mixed use, including the design of a newly constructed hotel.

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. Her residential projects include everything from complete kitchen and bath renovations to the design, remodelling and furnishing of luxury condominiums. She resides in St. Louis with her husband and two young children and is active in her community and Church.

Natalia Reyes

Designer
As a teenager, sacrificing social outings to stay home and help her parents with home renovatations may have been the first sign that pointed towards Natalia’s eventual goal of a career in Interior Design. Growing up, her family relocated often with her father’s career in the US military, and she had the opportunity to live in many homes throughout the United States. Eventually, Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri became “home base”. Natalia chose Missouri State University’s Interior Design Program to earn her Bachelor’s degree with credentials in Construction Management. Growing up in a military family and throughout college, she learned first-hand that hard work and persistence will carry you far in life.

Post-graduation, Natalia accepted a design internship with a boutique firm in Dallas, which lead to a Design Assistant position with a local showroom. The desire to be closer to family led her from Texas back to Missouri, where she pursued commercial design with a local firm. Her true passion, however, remained with residential design, and in early 2019 she joined JCR Design Group.

Today Natalia enjoys living in St. Louis, close to her family and five loveably rambunctious dogs. On the weekends you can find her playing with her dogs, browsing antique shops, embarking on DIY projects at her condo, or golfing with friends.
