After vacationing in the Valley 17 years ago, Jill decided to leave mid-western life and head West. She joins the Land Trust staff with a B.A. in Communications Management from Missouri State University. Before joining the Land Trust, Jill provided business development, marketing support and project management for the architectural, engineering and interior design fields, with 16 of those years working in our beloved Valley. Jill is a foodie who enjoys gardening, snowboarding, camping and riding bicycles with her husband and two young children.
