Associate Executive Director

Jill joined the Big Table team part-time in 2011.  She is the organizational virtuoso behind Big Table’s growth and expansion and now manages our vibrant city teams as our Associate Executive Director.  She is a graduate of WSU’s hospitality business program.  Jill and her husband Jamie (a gifted architect) have three boys – technically now all young adults.

Jill laughs easily, is gracious and direct in tough conversations, and gives thoughtful gifts.  She thinks tacos are a good idea always and is a big fan of fresh crab.  At 10 am every morning, Jill opens a can of Coke. Not Pepsi.  Not Diet Coke.  Coke.  Challenging days are often an excuse for a second can.
