Jill is fortunate to be able to fulfill her passion for educational technology while working for a district that is helping lead the revolution by providing innovative and authentic 21st-century learning experiences.

Personally, when she is able to suppress her addiction to all things digital, Jill lives for attending concerts to hear live music and is Pearl Jam's biggest fan. In addition, as the self-proclaimed Queen of Kong, with a fistful of quarters, she enjoys challenging opponents (excluding Steve Wiebe or Billy Mitchell, that is) without fear or hesitation to a classic game of Donkey Kong.
