In the years I've known Jill I have seen her in front of many different audiences. She is a master at telling a story. More importantly she connects that story to emotion, giving the audience something to think about, care about or even apply in their own life. Creativity is Jill's wheelhouse. Unbounded by rules, Jill takes you to a special place with a scenic ride along the way. I would not hesitate to hire Jill for any speaking function....from keynote to children's story...or entertaining talk to thought-provoking morality pieces. Get Jill on your team....now.
