Jessica Werner

Driven by the belief that the physical place and human connection shapes and enriches people’s lives, Jessica approaches projects with artistry and strategy and transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary.  

Jessica launched and leads Sage Studio and their work, building brands, developing emotionally focused, experiential spaces, creating financially successful and sustainable businesses, and fostering communities with substance, culture, and discovery across adaptive reuse, renovation and repositioning, and ground-up projects. At Sage, Jessica has led over 50 mixed-use, hotel, restaurant, and bar projects, leveraging her deep design, construction and development, brand creation and activation, and partnership and opening expertise she has garnered throughout her career. 

Eternally curious and an artist at heart, Jessica is a lover of poetry, good design, the NYT crossword and the beauty of experiencing life with family and friends. She resides in Denver with her two young daughters.
