We are delighted to welcome Jewel Pearson as State Chapter Leader for North Carolina.

After downsizing her homes and lifestyle over the course of 10 years, Jewel designed and built a beautiful 360 square foot tiny house in May 2015 that she calls home. Located in Charlotte, North Carolina, her urban and very chic tiny home was a big hit on HGTV’s shows “Tiny House, Big Living” and “How Are They Now” and was just recently the lead feature for Apartment Therapy’s new video series #TheNewHomesmiths.

A corporate project/product manager and consultant for over 20 years, she’s also a tiny house advocate and community leader sharing her tiny living experiences, offering consulting services and teaching workshops throughout the country to encourage and assist others in achieving their tiny living dreams.

Jewel is also the founder of Tiny House Trailblazers; a duo collaboration of powerful and uniquely talented women of color who together are a strong representation and voice for inclusion within the tiny house movement.
