Jill’s professional career in talent management and development began as an HR business partner and recruiter in the industrial manufacturing industry, where she hired, assessed, and developed talent for technical, financial, sales, and leadership roles. Her passion for career development led her to higher education, where she managed career coaching services for graduate business students (MBA) at a top-ranked business school. Later, she led global learning and leadership development for a global industrial filtration manufacturer. After several years of managing an expanding “side gig”, Jill officially launched Leadership Refinery in 2015 to focus more deliberately on coaching and developing high performing leaders.
