Jillian grew up in North Jersey and began camping with her parents before she could walk. After receiving her Master’s in Special Education she moved to California and explored all it has to offer: deserts, sequoias, mountains, beaches, valleys and SUNSETS. She has since backpacked Central America and the Pacific Northwest along with various other national parks. If you don’t find her in the forest she will likely be swimming in the ocean, stretched on a yoga mat, or snuggling with her own, or random strangers’ dogs. She is always ready for the next adventure and her glass is always overflowing with plenty to share!
