Jahnee Prince has more than 25 years of experience with land use and zoning. She brings a unique perspective as a former planning director and city planning consultant who has built relationships with local governments around the Southeast.

She drafts and proposes ordinance revisions based on her experience in local government. She also evaluates prior zoning and entitlement decisions for targeted properties. She handles rezoning applications and secures permits and entitlements as well.

Prior to joining Parker Poe, Jahnee was the deputy director of DeKalb County's Department of Planning and Sustainability, where she managed long-range planning and zoning functions for unincorporated areas of the county.
