Jesse Knori studied environmental design, with an emphasis in landscape architecture, at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where she also competed as a Division I student athlete in Nordic skiing. She graduated with honors in May 2017 and moved to Bend to coach at Bend’s Endurance Academy. An elite athlete, Jesse has skied for the Under-23 U.S. Ski Team and represented the United States at the 2017 Under 23 Cross-Country World Championships, ranking 15th in the the world for the women’s classic sprint. The same drive that took her to the top of her sport shows in her design work, where she combines an extreme attention to detail with a natural talent for interpreting information visually and creating spaces.
