Jill, a native to the Midwest, moved to the Peninsula in 2009 to work in Olympic Park where she spent 5 years leading volunteers and growing plants for the Elwha River Restoration Project. Jill has a B.A. in Environment & Development from Boston University and a MES from The Evergreen State College. Most recently, Jill has focused on raising her two wild girls and studying herbalism. She is grateful to get to spend her days exploring the natural world with children. In her free time, she and her family can be found searching for banana slugs and wild berries in the forest, digging in their garden, cooking up tasty food, or lounging along the bank a nearby river.
