Jill’s Story

Imagine a former newspaper journalist turned environmental scientist with a skill for design and strategic marketing endeavors - that's me! I want to better the world we live in and I want to use my skills in powerful and strategic marketing and communications to do that. I want to work with organizations, brands, and businesses who share in my quest to make room for optimism, who don't tire at the task of changing hearts and minds, and who believe in the power of story and authenticity. I relish in innovative disruptions to the norm be it in business or in life. I marry facts and science with story and design in the work to attract supporters, customers, and brand advocates. I specialize in crafting a powerful, authentic brand story. I use modern design, strategy, technology, and analytics to spread that story far and wide. I am an idealist, a realist, a creative, an adventurer and a confidante that puts bettering our world over bettering a bottom line. I ensure that the goals my clients are trying to achieve, be it increased funding, more customers, or better sales, are not only met but surpassed. I strive to always be kind and to use my spirit as well as my skillset to achieve great things for my clients, myself, and our shared world.

When not focused on telling my client’s story I strive to live a life less ordinary constantly seeking out ways to challenge myself, my routine, and my expectations. Together with my amazing husband Tim, I enjoy living aboard our 43-foot sailboat every summer and the simplicity and connectivity to nature that brings. We adore rambling the back roads and exploring the hidden corners of New England in our 1975 Volkswagen Camper Bus. I thrive on live music, fresh seafood, and hot and humid weather (I know, so not a New Englander). I have committed to traveling to the far corners of our great green earth be it by land, sea or air to meet new people, expand my beliefs, and remind myself of how lucky I am to be alive.
