A More Personal Glimpse
Jill didn’t start out promoting good food and good health, but she
did begin her professional life in promotion. After earning a degree
in advertising from the University of Florida, she worked in marketing
and public relations at the Kennedy Space Center and for a financial
institution. It wasn’t long before her love of food and all things
nutrition pulled her back to the University of Florida where she
earned a master’s degree in food science and human nutrition.
If Jill’s not counseling patients, tethered to her computer or other-
wise working, you might find her in the kitchen cooking up something
nutritious and delicious. (Yep, nutritious and delicious really do go
together.) Other times she’s out jogging, keeping up with her two
daughters, letting two dogs in and out, (and in and out again and
again) or simply trying to sneak some quiet time with her husband.
