Jill strives in making sure that the candidate experience is about a long-term relationship and that there is a clear understanding of the cultural and technical fit for the candidate.

- On a daily basis, Jill thrives to be as active as possible, even when on vacation! From 8 hour hikes for days in Peru to 5 AM treks to Mount Everest base camp, Jill is always on the move! When it comes to elevator or stairs, you can bet she will be taking the 15 flights of stairs to our office!
- Jill considers herself a daring foodie, she will try at least anything once! Including a tarantula, however in the kitchen, she is definitely not in her element! When her soon to be future husband came to cook for her at her place of 5 years, he had to remove the safety seal on the oven! Needless to say, Jill provides great encouragement at company picnics!
