Jill, a native to the Midwest, moved to the North Olympic Peninsula in 2009 to work in Olympic National Park where she spent 5 years coordinating volunteers and growing plants for the Elwha River Revegetation Project. Jill moved on to manage a local Conservation District. More recently, Jill has focused on raising her two wild girls (named after wildflowers) and training to be a community herbalist. Jill is passionate about connecting people to one another and our local landscape through time spent together in the natural world. She and her family can be found searching for banana slugs in the forest, snacking on wild berries, or lounging along the bank a nearby river.
