As a coach, she's thoughtful, compassionate, and insightful and I feel lucky to have her in my corner as I launch a new venture.”

“I called on Jill for help with a stalled project in 2017 and she was simply an idea machine. She offered immediate solutions that not only solved our biggest issue (budget limitations), she also shared a key contact that we ultimately hired to take on the project for us (with great results). The level of respect that Jill enjoys in her industry is unmatched. Her ability to see patterns and insights quickly, pivot when necessary, and connect people via her vast network is why you call Jill. Ideas are not hard to come by – it’s the ability to strategize and build the plan to execute them that takes vision. The fact that she also exudes positivity and inspires those around her is why her clients love her, and continue to call on her digital and content expertise when they need the absolute best brain in the business.”

“It's rare to have the opportunity to work with an account lead like Jill, who so easily strikes the balance between being a clear, direct leader and a supportive champion of her team. I had the privilege of doing so for the past six months while Jill led the Hilton team at MediaCom. During our time working together, Jill regularly impressed me with her ability to effortlessly address even the toughest client challenges and draw on her experience to inspire the team to think differently. What stands out most though is Jill’s ability to connect with each member of her team on a personal level. It creates comfort and trust amongst the team (myself included) that Jill will be there to support them on a professional and personal level, something that she delivers on time and time again. I’d consider myself lucky to work with Jill again in the future. And any team would be just as lucky to have her as its leader.“

“I cannot say enough great things about Jill. She is a super intelligent, amazing leader who knows her craft and is able to organize and rally a large team to produce their best. She cultivates great relationships with clients and is invested in every team member at every level. As team lead, she is expected to manage across many disciplines, and Jill never misses a beat. Our team enjoys her spirit and love of the industry and craft, and her positive attitude is contagious. She is never afraid to take on something new, and is always seeking ways to add to her (already numerous) skills and that of the teams’. Jill is not just a boss, but also a partner. She is the glue that keeps our team together. 5 years from now if Jill came calling, I would work for her again in a heartbeat. Jill is well-respected by leadership, clients, and is an amazing asset to our team!”

Her previous positions on the publishing and creative sides allow Jill to preemptively address what questions will arise, providing a solution that simplifies next steps for all parties. She is both a mentor and a friend, and I'm thrilled to be part of her team!”

Her strategic leadership with the launch of GE's viral campaign, called "The Pen," resulted in metrics that fully exceeded our expectations. We couldn't have dreamt about better results.
