Jill earned her undergraduate and both of her graduate degrees from the University of Arkansas. She received her Bachelor's of Science in Business Administration in Marketing Management in 2004. She went on to earn a Master's in Higher Education in 2007, a second Master's of Science in Counselor Education in 2010.

Jill joined Fulbright Honors after 5 1/2 year of academic advising in the Fulbright Advising Center. While there she worked with students of all majors in Fulbright College. Jill was Assistant Director of Program Development and her responsibilities in addition to academic advising included heading the colleges recruiting efforts along with supervising the Fulbright College Ambassadors. She is a member of both the Arkansas Academic Advising Network (ArkANN) and National Academic Advising Counsel (NACADA) and has presented at the state, regional and national level. She was named "Outstanding Academic Adviser" by ArkAAN in 2010 and her co presentation on student veterans won Best of Region 7.  Prior to the Advising Center she was an Assistant Director of Admission in the University's Office of Admissions.

A native of Brinkley, AR, Jill now calls Northwest Arkansas home with her husband Michael, two girls Emma and Ava and their puppy Gabby. She loves to walk with her family around campus and gets excited about all things Razorback. Her favorite part of her job is that every student is different and each one of them brings something special to the advising session. Helping students discover their passions and how a Fulbright major fits them continues to make her smile daily.
