“Having Jill as a teammate over the last several months has done 2 things for me: 1. Given me some amazingly detailed perspective moving forward in our industry. 2. Given this “know nothing” in the world of PR and Marketing, a real education in the ways and practices on the two subjects. Jill is an invaluable asset to us. She is solutions and results driven, which is an amazing natural talent of hers. Additionally, she is a champion among veteran organizations and wounded war fighters. We are proud to support her in her work to bring veterans issues to the forefront of public knowledge.”

Her work with the Veteran Caregivers network, and the time and effort she commits in supporting the caregivers of veterans, is an example to us all. She stands up for what is right, and fights for all those who do not have a voice. She is a wonderful and compassionate advocate for Veterans and their families, and has the tenacity of a bulldog until issues are resolved. I am blessed to have her as a friend and colleague.”

Our Purple Heart Wounded Warriors had the time of their lives racing Le Mans cars, shooting tactical weapons, jet skiing and sharing fellowship as only combat wounded can do. Great job Jill!
