director of client relations
Jill grew up in Ohio and currently resides in Rochester, MI, with her husband, Paul. She obtained her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Michigan - Go Blue! - and worked in the business arena until she started her family. The desire to help raise her family led to her departure from the working world. However, once her children became older, Jill returned to the workforce but in a slightly different arena, one which allowed her the flexibility she needed for family life.
As Jill re-entered the workforce, her first adventure was as an entrepreneur. Jill owned a small fundraising company, and it was the perfect transition back and an exciting endeavor. Her next adventure led her to manage the annual "Golf Fly-Away" for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. This role involved booking exclusive golf clubs, complete with private airfare and travel accommodations, to help support this incredible cause. Jill greatly enjoyed this role, and more importantly, the part it played in her desire to help save the lives of others.
More recently, Jill served as the Manager of Community Events for Meadow Brook Hall. This role allowed her to take part in helping to preserve this amazing Historical Landmark for all to enjoy for years to come. All of these endeavors allowed her to offer exemplary client service and build long-lasting relationships.
Now, Jill is excited to be part of the Palatine family and transition into a new arena. No matter the industry, Jill strives to ensure that each interaction is one full of positive energy that provides value and delivers the highest quality of service possible. She is honored to be working with a company that is changing lives for the better, and her work experience has fueled a passion and ability to connect with people, which makes her extremely happy. Jill is looking forward to using that energy to focus on you, the client, and to exceed all of your expectations.
Jill loves outdoor activities such as running, biking, and rafting in her spare time, but her true passion is spending time with her family. Jill has a wonderful husband, Paul, and three beautiful children - Greg, Julia, and Michael. Her family also has a gray tabby named Scout!
