She attended the University of Pittsburgh, majoring in technical theater with an emphasis in costume design. During college, she worked on over a dozen plays for the Three Rivers Shakespeare Festival, as well as designing numerous other projects for her fellow students- they found out she could sew! After graduation, Jill worked for a variety different entities- everything from Ringling Brothers Circus to the Houston Grand Opera, where she won an Emmy Award for her contribution to the award-winning production of “Nixon in China” for PBS. She was then recruited to travel around the world, working as a wardrobe supervisor on tour for artist such as Bette Midler, Diana Ross, The Backstreet Boys, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Jennifer Lopez, Rhianna, Lenny Kravitz, Stevie Nicks, and Fleetwood Mac.
