“Jillian brought the Ladue Horton Watkins High School journalism program into the 21st century with her knowledge and skills in social media and technical journalism when she was hired in the Ladue School District. She easily led her teams to see the bigger picture of communication strategies while at the same time, brought out the best in each individual to contribute to the team's goals. Under her guidance, the staff won several journalism awards for their work. Jillian sets high expectations for herself and her leadership. She also has high expectations of her staff members, but she is realistic in setting goals for them to build their individual skill sets over time with her support. Jillian's communication knowledge and expertise lend themselves, not only to a school environment, but to a business environment as well. Jillian's exemplary work with students and the high quality of her productivity are superior to others in similar positions as leaders in communication.”
“My daughter was in the Rockwood gifted program and Jill and I were on several committees together. Her insight to gifted children was invaluable to developing curriculum and programs that assisted them. She truly understood that being gifted presented inherent challenges in our schools and was able to address those challenges logically and helped spearhead some changes in our programs.”

"I would like to take a moment to recommend Jill. I am a parent of one of Jill's former students. I have always been impressed with Jill's dedication. She worked tirelessly to produce an environment that was conducive to learning and she was successful in teaching very difficult concepts like critical thinking, independent thought, logic, reasoning, etc. She gave appropriate support to the classroom and individual students in developing these areas. Though I know Jill in an educational setting, I would say that her skills set in teaching, coaching, counseling would translate to any industry. She is a fabulous trainer and provides motivating feedback. Jill is energetic and has a positive can do attitude. Jill has the ability to impact individuals and results. Jill earned my respect while teaching my child, she encouraged, gave constructive criticism, and inspired my daughter.
I know that Jill will be an asset to any organization she is aligned with. She is results driven and has great priority setting ability."
