Jillian grew up in Waterville competing in volleyball, basketball, and softball. A high school sports injury resulting in physical therapy treatment ignited her interest in the field. She attained her Bachelor's of Science degree in exercise science from Eastern Washington University in 2010 and continued her education with the Physical Therapist Assistant program at Spokane Falls Community College graduating with honors in 2013. While attending PTA school, she was an active member of the program's club for two years. In Jillian's my spare time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends; camping, dirt bike riding, hunting, and any activity outdoors.
