As Sierra Business Council’s Director of Communications, Jill is a media and messaging catch-all, taking point on the organization’s network development, marketing efforts, fundraising campaigns, branding, and storytelling. She works closely with SBC’s government affairs, energy and community planning, workforce housing, and economic empowerment teams, supporting program goals and bringing a strategic lens to day-to-day implementation tasks.
Jill is a third-generation Sierra Nevada resident, having grown up in Placerville and now based in Truckee. She is an advocate for the Sierra Nevada’s small towns, granite slopes, rugged forests, and open spaces. Prior to joining SBC, Jill worked as a nationally published reporter for the outdoor industry and digital communications consultant. She holds a BA from the University of Puget Sound (Tacoma, WA).
When she is out of the office, Jill is either outside in the Sierra, with her dog June and a fly rod in hand, or inside, reading, throwing clay, or tinkering around the art studio.
