Jill graduated with high honors from Princeton University and received her Masters degree from UCLA, with concentrations in Health Psychology and Statistics. She then worked as a researcher at Princeton, UCLA, The Pritikin Longevity Center, and as a nutrition research consultant to international clients including Disney, Caltech and NBC. Starting in 2011, when debilitating POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) made her unable to be upright, she expanded her focus to include helping the chronic illness community.
She now assists top POTS experts with medical research, has released several free mobile apps for patients, and founded PatientsCount.org, a website for conducting patient surveys. She serves on the boards of several patient organizations and lives in Anchorage, Alaska with her husband and 3 dogs. She is thrilled to assist Linda Elsegood and team, whom she considers marvels of grassroots effectiveness.
