As a Principal in KTGY’s Oakland office, Jessica Musick is committed to high-quality innovative design. Ms. Musick joined KTGY in 2003 and has since developed a diverse portfolio, she also plays an integral role in establishing the design vision and carrying projects through design approvals. Focusing on urban-infill mixed-use projects, Ms. Musick believes that architecture should be deeply rooted in the community where it sits, responsibly responding to client goals, community needs and the urban context. Having served as lead designer for residential and mixed-use developments, Ms. Musick’s experiences has given her the insight that good design is the product of many factors and puts priority on communication, process and understanding project economics.
Beyond architecture, Ms. Musick serves her local community through KTGY’s sponsorship of an Oakland public school, Madison Park Business & Art Academy, via the Oakland Public Education Fund. Ms. Musick also volunteers weekend time to Oakland running club LMJS and works with local runners to train for the Oakland Running Festival half marathon.

She has also served as a Critic at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo and Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California. Ms. Musick graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture degree with honors from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
