Jillian joins the USGLC after a seven year tenure with a Direct Marketing Fundraising agency at which she helped dozens of nonprofit organizations raise millions of dollars to further their causes and missions. Prior to that she served as the Development Director for NARAL Pro-Choice Maryland, and as an organizer on Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign. She received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Washington in Seattle with a major in Political Science and a minor in Human Rights. Jillian has lived, worked and traveled throughout Central America and Mexico. She speaks Spanish and loves that region of the world, its culture, and its interconnectedness to the U.S. When not fundraising, you can find Jillian reading, volunteering for local politicians and their campaigns, and spending time with her husband, son and/or their two cats.
