With a B.A in Environmental, Geography and Urban Studies from Temple University, she focused much of her studies on environmental justice. Jillian is excited to work on the Connect product to help teachers and families close the literacy gap! Jillian enjoys biking, hiking and exploring Philadelphia with her dogs. Her favorite childhood books are the Magic Treehouse series because she would imagine going on adventures just like Jack and Annie!
