Jill graduated from the University of Idaho in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in sociology and a minor in communication studies. Jill started gaining mental health experience working as a community based rehabilitation specialist in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho soon after graduation, serving kids, teens, and adults in the community. In 2014 she moved to the Gallatin Valley from North Idaho after accepting a job as a behavior specialist for the CSCT program. She has been at her current school, aged k-4, for almost 7 years, and loves the staff, kids, and the Belgrade community. She loves working with elementary aged kids because of their senses of humor, ability to see things positively, and seeing all of the fun learning experiences. She takes pride in being part of Belgrade Schools and Providence Mental Health. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her husband, family, and friends, reading, doing puzzles, watching
movies, gardening in the summer, and snuggles with her cat in the winter.
