Jill lives in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey and has three children. After graduating from N.Y.U. Tisch School of the Arts she performed in theater in N.Y.C. which included dancing as a Rockette at Radio City Music Hall. As her family grew, she became drawn to the healing arts and studied mantra, meditation and different modalities of healing. She studied intensively with Steve Thompson, author of “The Secret Key”, and Thomas Amelio, who has been a senior teacher at Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health for over 35 years, and is President Emeritus of the NY Open Center in New York City. This led her to begin guiding meditation groups, and retreats to Sedona, AZ..

In 2016 she received her RYS 200 hour yoga certification at FLOW Yoga Studio under Ben Wisch.

She most recently began the study of the harmonium, a small pump organ used in the practice of kirtan ,a form of Bhatki yoga.
She has been practicing self-care for about 20 years. Her morning meditation and asana practice are her most important tool to help her begin her day with intention and awareness. She loves to exercise, whether it be yoga, dance or hike. Walking with a friend is one of her favorite ways to connect and appreciate nature while doing something good for her body. She is passionate about healthy eating,cooking and sharing meals with family . She believes date nights with her husband are essential to staying connected to each other. Most recently, she has been exploring the Divine Feminine and tapping into the deeper power within that most of us do not even realize exists.
