Jen Hawk
Founder at Occupy Design


Jen Hawk is a multifaceted Interior Designer and Entrepreneur. She started her design career in 2005 with a large Vancouver firm specializing in multi-family development. In 2009 she left to start her own company; Occupy Design.

In the late Summer of 2017, she relocated to the Okanagan Valley where her design career focuses mainly on hospitality. Beyond interior design, together with her husband; Jen is the owner of Wayne and Freda cafe, WAF coffee roasters and "The Shop' by Wayne and Freda located in Penticton BC

For Jen design has always been about potential. The potential of what the people that will later inhabit the space could possibly feel. This has always appealed as a powerful way to create joy in the lives of others. Her desire in design is to create unique, thoughtfully designed spaces that people can live out their parts of their stories in.
