“Having Jill as a teammate over the last several months has done 2 things for me: 1. Given me some amazingly detailed perspective moving forward in our industry. 2. Given this “know nothing” in the world of PR and Marketing, a real education in the ways and practices on the two subjects. Jill is an invaluable asset to us. She is solutions and results driven, which is an amazing natural talent of hers. Additionally, she is a champion among veteran organizations and wounded war fighters. We are proud to support her in her work to bring veterans issues to the forefront of public knowledge.”
~William Romes, Marketing Dir. Raine Inc. (former CEO Tactical Revolution) (May 4, 2012)
“Jill is an absolute genius with social media, and her efforts to get the word out about Veterans and their struggle for care has been awe inspiring. Her work with the Veteran Caregivers network, and the time and effort she commits in supporting the caregivers of veterans, is an example to us all. She stands up for what is right, and fights for all those who do not have a voice. She is a wonderful and compassionate advocate for Veterans and their families, and has the tenacity of a bulldog until issues are resolved. I am blessed to have her as a friend and colleague.”
~Vivienne Edwards, Founder of Angels on Wheels (January 10, 2011)
“Jill is an exceptionally gifted woman who combines intellect with wisdom to provide creative solutions and a can-do attitude to any situation. In working with Jill, I am always impressed with her thorough research, creative suggestions, and integrated thinking. Given a tough challenge, Jill will rise to the occasion and supply what is needed before being asked. This is rare indeed. This economy is difficult and timing and experience matter more than ever. Jill has your back, is looking forward, and she cares about the issues surrounding service families and veterans. You can never pay someone to care, and in Jill, you have the genuine article: articulate, bright, flexible, and warm. I highly recommend Jill for whatever position she aspires to and am glad of the opportunity to work with her.”
~Linda Kreter Owner of WiseHealth, Inc. and Veteran Caregiver.com (October 8, 2010)

The guys were awesome to work with and Jill delivered everything she promised.”
~ Cindy Sisson, Sports Industry Consultant and Board of Directors for Presidential Foundation on Health, Sports and Fitness, (November 3, 2011)
“With little guidance and minimal resources, Jill conceptualized, planned and supported the execution of the WWIA’s first annual “Hotlanta” hero event. Our Purple Heart Wounded Warriors had the time of their lives racing Le Mans cars, shooting tactical weapons, jet skiing and sharing fellowship as only combat wounded can do. Great job Jill!
~ John J McDaniel Founder, WWIA (July 21, 2011)
