Interested in 1-on-1 Coaching with Jillian?

What does a mentor do? I look at your big, long-term goals and dreams. We confront the challenges that have held you back and find solutions. I examine all the details of your current situation. Then we work together to plot out a plan, breaking big goals into small actionable steps and habits.

I specialize in financial planning, career transitions, and creating or scaling new businesses. 

About Me

I started my financial journey at 19 with $55,000 of debt. Adam and I didn’t have high earning jobs, but we still had big dreams. We wanted to travel the world, adopt kids, and have financial freedom.

It took over a decade but we paid off our debt, paid cash for our home, adopted 4 kids (and had 2 biological kids), bought rentals, traveled to 27 countries and lived abroad.

At 32, I became financially independent and we left our full-time jobs. We live in Kalispell Montana, near Glacier National Park with our 5 kids and our dog named Cheesy Taco.
