Having always had a passion for creativity and design, Jamie graduated from Indiana University in 1989 with a degree in Apparel Merchandising. After college, she was quickly drawn toward the world of retail display and visual design. Jamie worked for many years at Galyan’s Trading Company. Over time, she became their Retail Apparel Merchandise Director, responsible for opening new stores, working with their buyers and designing all of the apparel merchandise display layouts. She eventually left Galyan’s to start a family, but as her children became older, she began building her business. In 2003, J. Gauker Interiors was born. In 2009, J. Gauker Interiors joined Savvy Décor, an interior design firm centrally located in the Carmel, Indiana Arts & Design District. Not only was she an independent designer with them, it allowed her to work together as part of their team, providing her the opportunity to participate in the Indianapolis Monthly Dream Home in 2010 and 2012. In August 2013, Jamie proudly opened her own design studio in Carmel, Indiana. Today, she continues to work with clients to develop beautiful, livable solutions, bringing their personal style and vision to life.
