Jamie Chafe is a California native, born and raised in Southern California. She holds a Bachelor’s in Landscape Architecture and a minor in Sustainable Environments from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Ocean swimming and climbing mountains in extreme elements has instilled a reverence for natural forces and the inspiration to strive to preserve them, and she feels design is a way to help people seamlessly reconnect with their natural surroundings.

Jamie’s passion for Landscape Architecture was sparked during a service learning internship in South Africa in 2016. As part of a team of nine, she designed and built an eco-campground and endurance playground for the children of Baviaanskloof. She joined Ground Studio in 2018 to apply her love of space making and creative solutions to the firm’s work in gardens across the central coast.
