Jillian is originally from Annapolis, MD but has lived on all coasts and most recently moved to Charlotte from Concord, MA in 2018 with her husband and three children. She studied PR and Art at James Madison University and received her M.Ed, in Student Affairs Administration from UGA. She worked on the design team at Kate Spade NY for many years, taught classes for the Academy of Art in San Francisco and owned a custom wedding stationery business. She is an active volunteer at her children’s school, loves a good country concert and glass of red wine, is an avid reader and spends her Sundays baking while dreaming of opening a nutritious bakery in town one day.
Fitness and nutrition have always been a priority for Jillian and when she moved to Charlotte, she was introduced to Hilliard Studio Method. She was instantly hooked. Her mindset of exercising at home while babies napped immediately changed when she spent time in the studio and found herself thriving off the energy the classes gave her and the sense of community she found.
Jillian is excited to get on the mic and be a part of this community that has given her so much hope and motivation!
