Our Founder, Jennifer Smith

Jennifer Smith, the driving force behind Permit Solutions, brings over a decade of expertise in Land Use Entitlement and Government Relations. Her journey began in the vibrant state of California, where she served as an Urban Planner for more than four years. As a Regional Planner for Los Angeles County, she played a pivotal role in overseeing a diverse range of projects, from the construction of single-family residential developments to the creation of new affordable housing multi-family units. Her rich experience in the field laid the foundation for what Permit Solutions has become today.

Jennifer's professional journey continued as she made her way to Austin, Texas, where she worked within the City of Austin Development Services Department. It was during her time in this department that she recognized a crucial need in the community for highly competent and efficient permit processors, especially in the rapidly growing City of Austin.

Before launching Permit Solutions, Jennifer also gained valuable experience working for another local permitting company in Austin. This experience further cemented her belief that clients deserved a higher standard of service providers. This understanding served as the catalyst for Permit Solutions to emerge as a beacon of excellence in the industry.
