Jillian grew up in small-town Pennsylvania very near to the birthplace of Hershey's chocolate. She first hit the stage at age eight and never left. Throughout high school, Jillian worked extensively in regional theater and at the Actor's Center in Philadelphia.
After studying journalism at Villanova University, Jillian moved to New York City to attend the two-year conservatory program at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where she was later invited to act in the Academy Company.
Now living in Los Angeles, Jillian is signed across the board with BBA Talent and continues to train with Margie Haber Studio, Zak Barnett Studios, and the Actor's Green Room. She is also an advanced improv student and performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade.
Most recently, Jillian played a supporting role in La Ciguapa Siempre, a NETFLIX-produced thriller short set to premiere at the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival in June 2021. She's also been featured in several national commercials for Armor All, Carl's Jr., Hasbro, and The General.
In addition to acting, Jillian is the proud owner of Red Pen Wench, a full-service resume writing business.
