Telephone: 908-730-0270 ext. 220

Jillian graduated from the College of New Jersey in 2011 with a B.S. in Biology and Concentration in Environmental Studies. During college, her interest in environmental conservation developed when she spent a semester abroad in a Tropical Rainforest Ecology Program in Australia.

After graduation, she worked at Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory in Nebraska as an Environmental Educator, was a Horseshoe Crab Biological Intern on Fire Island National Seashore, and worked as a Natural Resource Technician at Morris County Park Commission. She has experience doing outreach, invasive species removal, wildlife surveys, and native habitat restoration. She will graduate in the spring of 2016 with a Masters in Environmental Science from Pace University.

She has an interest in sustainable agriculture and had the opportunity to work on an organic farm on the Big Island of Hawaii in the summer of 2013, growing and picking coffee, macadamia nuts, and tropical fruits. Jillian is a partner with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), working with farmers to improve practices that will benefit environmental health and water quality in the Raritan Basin. In her free time, Jillian enjoys hiking, travelling, and painting.
