P31 Collaborative principal, Jill Wheatley, is a Pacific Northwest native who finds design inspiration from surrounding nature, unique travels, and daily life adventures. Jill received her B.S. from the Art Institute of Portland in Interior Design, graduating with honors. Her 11-year career has brought her experience in residential - both high-end and small budgets, multi-family housing, planned communities, and small commercial design. She has been given great opportunities to hone her skills as a designer working for award-winning firms such as NB Design Group and Weber Thompson. Jill has also used her time in the design industry to build up her gifts as an event planner. She has helped coordinate several successful non-profit design events for organizations including: The Volunteers of America, International Interior Design Association (IIDA), Network of Executive Women in Hospitality (NEWH), and Interior Design Coalition of WA (IDCW). In 2010, she received the NEWH Industry Leadership award for her work with various non-profit design organizations.
As the name of her company notes, collaboration is an essential part of how Jill works. The relationship between clients, architects, contractors, vendors, and artisans is what makes her projects successful. "Each person's life experiences and stylistic preferences help to contribute to the design process, thereby creating an end product that has been perfectly formed to meet and exceed the client's expectations."
