On leadership, “Someone who sets good examples in everything they do – at work, with peers, at church. It also means you’re helping your team and clients to grow and reach their goals.”
Favorite quote, “The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary.” - Vince Lombardi

Lives, family, homes are central to all of us and Jill is honored to take on the great responsibility needed to protect people’s most important assets through her position as a State Farm Insurance agent. Jill’s position requires her to be involved in the community through each client and fulfills her career desire to interact with her local neighbors.

While working as an intern and later in operations at Microsoft in Fargo, Jill started missing the person-to-person contact and the sense of community that a local employment position could provide to her. Jill looked for a new career opportunity and transitioned from a job that had global impact (with people she may have not met face-to-face) to one of a local contact and service.

As Jill completed the rigorous State Farm hands-on training and licensure requirements January through September of this year, an agent position opened up in Fargo and Jill stepped in to become the only female agent in Fargo. Jill opened her State Farm office located at 2511 Kirsten Lane, Fargo in October 1 and employs several people. Jill said,”It’s ideal to be located in Fargo.”
