After the birth of her second son, she opened a home-based company selling baby blankets to Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales and high-end boutiques across the country. When her sons started school, she decided to explore her passion for real estate, which was born studying floor plans at the dining room table alongside her homebuilder father.

Jill was adopted and spent a short time in foster care and that is part of what shaped who she is today. As a thank you for those who took care of her, Jill advocates on behalf of abused and neglected children by being a Court-Appointed Special Advocate (CASA). She’s also served on the American Diabetes Association board, to help push for a cure and to serve people, like her son, who was diagnosed with this chronic disease at the age of 10.
Jill loves combing through antique shops, watching movies, exploring Denver neighborhoods, and spending time with her cherished rescued Saint Bernard, Millie. But when asked how she enjoys spending her free time, she usually replies, “What free time? I work. It’s what I love to do.”
