Jennifer Smith, is the founder and CEO of Permit Solutions. Jennifer founded Permit Solutions December 2018, after leaving her job with the City of Austin Development Services Department.

Permit Solutions has grown mainly though client recommendations, which is a testament to the quality of work we can provide. We are growing and learning as our client base continues to expand.
