Jessica Gates Portrait RealFood Designer

We are always expanding our personal understandings of design and problem solving. You can never know too much and there’s always new information out there to engage with and incorporate into generating more advanced and enlightened results.

Jessica Gates

Associate Design Project Manager

A natural problem solver, Jess approaches design from a service perspective, always seeking out the best solution, technically and operationally. She leans on her past experiences in hospitality and architecture to inform her technical depth of design elements and best-in-class document development.

After earning a Bachelor of Design in Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis, Jess pursued her love for events and worked in planning and executing private events in St. Louis, which gained her an advanced and informed viewpoint on design within the world of hospitality.

At RealFood, Jess manages client relationships, provides guidance and leadership to the entire design team, and executes drawings for hospitality design projects that span the spectrum of the industry.

Jess currently serves as the Language Training & Resources Chair on the Diversity & Inclusion Council for RealFood parent company, Troon.
