Halifax, Nova Scotia
What gets Jill out of bed every day? Her alarm, usually. But after that, it’s definitely storytelling. With a background in the arts, Jill is always looking for a story to engage audiences through writing.
Jill holds a bachelor of English and Drama from Bishop’s University, and an Advanced Diploma in Public Relations from NSCC. Born and raised in the HRM, Jill currently lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia with a picture-perfect Harbour view of her hometown, Dartmouth.
Here is a brief taste of Jill’s personality:
What is usually playing in your headphones?
90% of the time I’m listening to a podcast, but if I’m driving, I’m likely listening to Classic Rock. When I’m working out, it’s probably Rock or Metal with a sprinkle of upbeat pop.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Britney Spears, until I realized I didn’t particularly like too much attention and that I didn’t have a coordinated bone in my body. I used to get my parents to take photos of me posing in front of cars or leaning on a prop like my baseball bat (in case I needed to provide photo assets to accompany future Tiger Beat magazine interviews, of course).
What are you happiest doing, when you are not working?
Relaxing with a good fiction book, listening to podcasts, amateur photography, taking walks around Halifax, or dipping my toes in Nova Scotia’s breathtaking waters.
What is your hidden talent?
Going back to what I wanted to be when I was a child, I’d say my hidden hobbies are singing and photography (but just for fun, I wouldn’t go as far as calling them talents). These days, if photographs are involved, I’ve retired the baseball bat and am usually found behind the camera. And given that the soundproofing in my apartment is less than ideal, I save the singing for the car.
What is one of your favourite quotes?
“Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.” -Oscar Wilde
