who what why


Jessica Gates is a bay area native. She holds a joint degree in Industrial Design and Business from California College of the Arts and University of San Francisco.

Jess began her career working on Disney Princess electronics, where she made it her mission to design more meaningful alarm clocks and phones for the often mystifying ‘tween market. From there, she worked as a designer for Fox Racing and Williams-Sonoma, creating race gear and best-selling products for every nook and cranny of the home.

Jess believes that focused research, strategic thinking and quality design result in great stuff. Pushup Consulting was founded to give the people who make that stuff a boost in the right direction.
