Meet Your Team
Jillian, originally from Southern California and lover of warm weather and sunny days, couldn’t have foreseen as a child that she would come to love winter adventures. Four years ago — before taking up studies in pursuit of her MBA — she discovered her love for the outdoors during six months of travel. She was hooked; she has since loved everything to do with nature and the outdoors.
Jillian’s obsessive personality pushed her to dive right into the outdoors. It was here that she could be herself, be inspired, and push her limits. She now lead climbs, seeks out backcountry couloirs to ski, and has solo thru-hiked both the John Muir and Colorado Trails. She believes it’s not talent that made these things possible, but because of this obsession and love of human-powered adventure.
Jillian now lives in Colorado, where she spends her weekends (and more) in the mountains. Her heart is fullest when she is helping other women fall in love with the mountains. She believes women can accomplish amazing things when they’re focused and confident in themselves. She is excited to help women realize these qualities and embrace their full potential as Program Manager for OWA.
