In Jillian's Words
I grew up in a military family so I'm "from" a lot of places. I was born in Germany, transplanted to the sweeping plains of Oklahoma, and finally settled in Long Island. I eventually traded in my cowgirl boots, put myself through college and landed at PwC in the big city. Since then I have moved through a variety of firms and roles where I've gained a wealth of tax and accounting experience. When I'm not crunching numbers you can find me planning my next trip to explore the world with my husband, Mike, or lounging with my doggy daughter, Abby. I'm also known to enjoy a glass of wine (or two) with a good book or cheesy thriller.
Favorite Place Visited: It is a toss-up between Thailand and Germany. They both have their own amazing facets.
First Job: Cleaning bird cages for a woman who had more than 10 cockatoos in her home.
Hidden Talent: Origami. So hidden, it's hidden from me too! If anything, it's speaking every dialect of dog language there is.
