Fun Facts about Jillian
What is your favorite book of all time?
I usually read three or four books per month so this is constantly changing—but if you ever need a recommendation, I’m your girl! I recently read Killers of the Flower Moon in one sitting because I could not put it down.
Do you like to travel? Where?
I spent a semester in Dublin during my junior year of college, and Ireland is one of my favorite places. I feel very at home there. When I was abroad, I took the opportunity to travel to Scotland, Poland, France, Italy, and England, and I have only good things to say about all those countries. I was lucky to be able to see so much.
What causes do you care most about?
There’s quite a variety of things! I lost my aunt to breast cancer, so breast cancer research and advocacy is a cause that’s very dear to me. A little more than two years ago, I adopted a rescue pitbull who’d been mistreated, so I do my best to support destigmatizing the breed. Currently, I serve on the development committee for an organization called Brave Like Gabe, which focuses on rare cancer research and empowering all survivors through physical activity. I’m also really passionate about preserving historical memory, particularly as it relates to World War II and the Holocaust.
What’s your favorite quote?
In one of my many trips to Ireland, my aunt introduced me to an old friend of hers (we met in a pub, naturally) who said, “You’re a long time dead, love. Don’t live to regret.”
