My name is Jill and I’m an award-winning journalist who is always seeking out new and exciting stories to cover.
My last role was on the podcast team at 1010 Wins & WCBS 880. During my time there, I reported and wrote episodes for our lineup of shows, while also stepping in to host and edit episodes. Our episodes aired weekly on Audacy’s NYC stations including WCBS Newsradio 880, WCBS FM, and WFAN. My team won a Murrow for our show “Beyond Black History Month.” One of my favorite episodes I wrote and produced for BBHM looked at the intersection of mental health and climate issues, a beat I’m hoping to explore more.
Before 1010 Wins, I was a producer for Quake Media, where I worked on a twice-weekly newsmagazine hosted by Soledad O’Brien, a daily news podcast hosted by Gretchen Carlson, and “What Do You Really Think? with Marc Lamont Hill & Buck Sexton.” I also produced and edited the Empowered Health, an evidence-based women’s health podcast hosted by award-winning journalist Emily Kumler.
My past lives were at Inframation News covering energy infrastructure, local reporting at the Times Beacon Record News and Amherst Indie, and writing travel features at GoNOMAD.
I am especially interested in telling stories about people and places that are typically ignored by the mainstream media. I most enjoy producing stories exploring mental health, equity, systems, and climate change. I’m deeply interested in investigative work, personal stories, and long-form narratives. I’m also passionate about interviewing sources affected by diseases, disorders, and wellness fads in an effort to exemplify how women are constantly dismissed, stigmatized, and ignored by the medical system.
I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst majoring in journalism and communication and pursuing a film studies certificate and IT minor. My aspiration is to become an investigative reporter covering mental health issues.

When I’m not chasing down stories, you can find me in Shavasana at my local yoga studio, finishing up one of my many overdue library books, or buying overpriced baked goods.
I’ll leave you with a picture of my cat, Potion, in his Halloween costume 🙂
