Jill graduated from LC State and loves teaching at "her" institution. Her office overlooks the Administration Building and Reid Centennial Hall where she had many of her classes. Looking out here window always brings back good memories and makes her smile. She always saw herself as a "learner" not a teacher. She learns much from her students and is thrilled that she was able to teach as an adjunct for the Business Division from 2002- 2009 before accepting a full-time teaching position in 2011. She currently coordinates the Entrepreneur Challenge that occurs each fall on campus and offers cash prizes to college students, high school students and small business owners who compete by giving four minute pitches.
