Jill grew up in the northern suburbs of Chicago and after graduating from the University of Wisconsin - Madison in 1990, Jill moved to New York City to work for Bear Stearns. Jill worked in Bear Stearns' International Department, utilizing her language skills to sell Research and Investment Banking to European financial institutions, specifically in Spain and Italy. In 1994 Jill moved to Sanford C. Bernstein, where she was responsible for building out the firm's sales coverage in Spain and Italy. As a result of her success, she became the firm's youngest partner in 1997. In 2006 Jill decided to leave her career in Finance to focus on raising children. Jill spent her first four years in NYC on the Upper East Side, before moving to Midtown for ten years and ultimately settling in Tribeca fourteen years ago, empowering Jill to be intimately familiar with many different Manhattan neighborhoods. Jill is proficient in both Spanish and Italian. Jill currently lives with her two daughters in TriBeCa and brings them uptown each day for school; one on the Upper West Side and one on the Upper East Side, so Jill is basically in every part of Manhattan, every day. Nothing is inconvenient for Jill!
