About Us

In Jennifer's over 20 years of professional experience, she has had the opportunity to work with many clients ranging from large government agencies and schools, to smaller clients such as churches and homeowners. And the one constant throughout all of these projects has been the true joy of one-on-one collaboration with people to help them fulfill their design visions.
Jennifer founded jhb architect in 2002 as a sole proprietorship with a client-oriented philosophy.  And in April 2019, jhb architect grew to become Oak City Architecture, PLLC with the addition of Tara Henderlite as Jennifer's design and business partner.
 
Working together closely, we strive to dedicate the proper time and attention to our clients' needs and concerns; holding their hands when necessary, leading when required and always listening.

Jennifer Heron Brock

Principal Architect

I am a registered architect in the State of N.C. (#9249) and am Board Certified with the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) in Washington D.C.   As required, I also hold a Privilege License from the N.C. Department of Revenue allowing me to do business throughout the state.
My Bachelor of Architecture was awarded to me in 1994 by the College of Architecture and Urban Studies at Virginia Tech. Consistently ranked among the very best design programs in the nation. The education I received at Virginia Tech laid the foundation for my career and love of architecture.
