Jehna Winger Godwin, AIA, NCARB
Jehna earned her BS in Exercise Science from Florida State University in 2003. Within one week of
graduation, she opened and operated the first Pilates Studio in her hometown of Tallahassee, and later
went on to become a successful Sales and Network Marketing Director. Still, her childhood passion for
architecture continued to lure her towards a new career path. Jehna returned to graduate school at
Florida A&M University, and earned a Master of Architecture, summa cum laude, in 2015. She joined the DAG team that same Spring, and successfully earned her professional license only two years later. As a service-oriented business owner prior to becoming an architect, Jehna brings to the profession a
unique business acumen and passionate commitment to client care.
The common thread throughout her experiences has been a belief that a successful outcome is realized by focusing on helping others to achieve more. Jehna becomes invested in projects very early, helping clients from predevelopment to entitlement, and stays all the way through to the ribbon-cutting. As a trusted confidant and partner, she leads teams to deliver on project goals and values. She is an active participant in many professional organizations, including the American Institute of Architects, (AIA), the Greater Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce, Leadership Tallahassee, and the Space Coast Economic Development Commission.
