Jill has crafted a 30 year career as a drama and English coach and teacher. With a BA and MFA in Theater Arts she founded the Frankfurt School of Dramatic Arts in Frankfurt, Germany. On returning to the United States she established herself as a dynamic and engaging theatre arts and English language educator. Jill was inspired by her work as an educator to further her career and train as a Guided Autobiographical Writing facilitator under the Birren method. After years of working on the scripts of characters in plays, movies and novels she now realizes that the most important script is our own story *.
Jill’s personal note: I am passionate about what I do – I believe that everyone should write their life stories. We go through life too fast. We create ‘must do’ lists – learn to drive – go to college – have a career – marry – have children, see the world … but we rarely stop and acknowledge the life we have lived. We rarely allow ourselves the opportunity to embrace our lives and look at the stories and characters who made us who we are today. Please take time in your life to discover your stories and write them down. There is only one you – you are unique – your story is unique.
