Jennifer Krzyzanowski is originally from Bucks County, Pennsylvania near Philadelphia. She attended the University of Arizona College of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture Professionals, where she received a Bachelor’s of Architecture and a Master’s Degree in Landscape Architecture. She was initially drawn to the people, poetry, and holistic approach toward child care and education encountered at Tucson Waldorf School. Her daughter, Helene, enrolled in the Early Childhood, and is now a grades student in Mr. Doyle’s class of 2023. Jennifer later joined the Quail’s Nest parent-child classes with her son, Bohdan, who went on to enroll in the EC.
Since 2009, Jennifer has been teaching and writing curriculum for art and design in higher education focusing on landscape architecture, concept development, research methodology, and the fundamentals of design. In addition, she is the owner and principal designer of GROW. Through GROW, she has been helping people with their landscape, architecture, and planning needs for over ten years. Jennifer’s husband, David, is a native Tucsonan with a rich family history in Tucson. She is the youngest of five children and comes from a family of educators, their father being their greatest teacher. Environmental Design and Education are Jennifer’s passions. In her free time, she enjoys hiking, baking, crafting, art, and working her family’s modest urban farm with chickens and many gardens.
Jennifer is grateful for the many lessons she’s learned in her life and looks forward, with open eyes, to the lessons not yet learned.
