"Leadership is not about being the best. Leadership is about making everyone else better."
-Sheryl Sandberg

Jill’s first experience with people with disabilities was through a community service project in high school where she spent time in a DAC. From that moment, she knew she wanted to work in this field. Jill started at Harry Meyering in 2004 as a Direct Support Professional. Jill became a coordinator in the CRS program and currently works as a Program Manager. Watching individuals experience personal growth by overcoming hurdles to achieve their goals is what Jill enjoys most about her job.

Jill attended the Community Social Services Program at South Central College. Jill loves to learn and grow personally and professionally, and she enjoys sharing this knowledge and her experiences with other staff. Her focus on making a difference is evident in teaching and coaching; she loves to see growth in the individuals she supports, the staff, and herself. Jill has an interest in learning as much as she can with emphasis on Aging and Alzheimer’s, Personal Centered Planning, and Behavior Management.

Jill and her husband have two dogs, Harvey and Hazel. She enjoys spending her free time with family and friends, being outside on a boat or in the yard, and coaching Special Olympics Basketball.
