Jillian is an Oklahoman-born gal, with a Minor in Mid-Western Studies, and is now pursuing her Masters in Living from the Big, Bad Apple. She has been performing since birth -- literally, having played the starring role of Jesus Christ in All Souls Episcopal's production of The Nativity at just three months old to sold out crowds and rave reviews.
Since that "break out" performance she has appeared in many shows ranging from La Boheme to Brooklyn to The Sound of Music and Wicked. She holds a Bachelor of Music in Music Theatre from The Baldwin-Wallace College Conservatory of Music in Berea, Ohio and now resides in Brooklyn, NY with her Morkie pup, Sir Rupert III.
Jillian loves food, family, friends, forests, and fashion (in that order). She doesn't limit herself to just performing, although that is her first love and main source of passion. Jillian is also writing two children's books, a new musical, has an Insta-fashion blog @fivedays.fiveways, and is patenting an invention to detangle headphones, KnotSoKnotty.
Jillian has been performing all summer with the Idaho Shakespeare Festival appearing as Lily in The Secret Garden which will transfer to Great Lake Theater Festival this fall through October 31st. Click here for ticket info
