Jill’s first job was working in the kitchen of a nursing home in the mid 1980’s. As she ladled pureed glop into plastic bowls and watched residents sitting slumped over in wheelchairs, she thought, “I can’t believe people have to live this way at the end of their lives.”
For over two decades, Jill has made changing the culture of nursing homes, assisted living communities and retirement communities her life’s work as an administrator, executive director and vice president of operations.
In each role, Jill pushed back against the status quo and drove deep cultural transformation in both for-profit and non-profit organizations.
These efforts not only improved the quality of life for the people who lived and worked in her communities but led to significant improvements in occupancy, financial and regulatory outcomes.
Jill now serves as President & CEO of The Eden Alternative, an international non-profit dedicated to creating quality of life for elders and their care partners, no matter where they may live.
In 2018, The Eden Alternative impacted the lives of 100,000 people in sixteen countries around the world. Jill is the author of Disrupting the Status Quo of Senior Living: A Mindshift and speaks internationally on the topics of culture, leadership and ageism.
