About Jill


My philosophy is that nutrition science should be understandable, realistic and oh so delicious. Nothing boring, super restrictive, overwhelming or scientifically unsound. My goal now and for the last two decades has been to empower people to grab control of their health.

When I’m working with you, I’ll do more than just teach you what’s healthful. I’ll be your coach, sounding board, cheerleader and strategist. As a speaker and writer, I engage and entertain while informing. My audiences and readers – whether consumers or healthcare professionals – are energized to take action and get results. I’m the author of three books and regularly contribute to a number of publications including Environmental Nutrition, Food & Nutrition Magazine, Diabetic Living, Kid’s Eat Right, The DX and Today’s Dietitian.

Before I went back to school to study nutrition science, I worked in public relations. So today, I combine my food, nutrition and health expertise with my public relations and communications skills, to help industry clients such as Daisy Cottage Cheese, Boar’s Head Provisions and the Alliance for Potato Research and Education position their brands with a health advantage.

A More Personal Glimpse


I didn’t start out promoting good food and good health, but I did begin my professional life in promotion. After earning a degree in advertising from the University of Florida, I worked in marketing and public relations at the Kennedy Space Center and for a financial institution. It wasn’t long before my love of food and all things nutrition pulled me back to the University of Florida (Go Gators!) where I earned a master’s degree in food science and human nutrition.

If I’m not counseling and coaching clients, tethered to my computer or otherwise working, you’ll likely find me in the kitchen cooking up something nutritious and delicious. Or perhaps I’m out jogging, keeping up with two beautiful daughters, letting two dogs in and out, (and in and out again and again) or simply trying to sneak some quiet time with my husband.
