She knew her life was hopeless; her health was a disaster, and she had no idea what to do next. Everything felt impossible. But she showed up week after week at church and prayed to God to help her and to give her the resiliency to recover. Jill believed that doing the hard work of digging into her story and connecting the dots of her traumatic childhood would bring her Hope. Health. and Healing which she desired. The work and resiliency paid off. Today she is passionate about spreading Hope. Health. and Healing. to everyone she meets. Never give up. Connect the dots in your stories and they will set you free. Jill is thrilled to be working with leaders and in leading attendees in Hope, Health, and Healing as she is also a Wellness Partner with Amare Global, The Mental Wellness Company.

Jill loves doing/teaching Water Aerobics and Improv. Despite her own family of origin traumas, she intentionally lives a life of serving others, and helping them seek meaning, and healing in their lives. She was a single-never married mom and raised her son alone for 17 years. She has been married to Larry since May 2000.
