Throughout Jill’s career, her approach to work and life has been underpinned by a natural curiosity of human behavior and a desire to help others. It was this curiosity that drove her decision to return to education in 2019 to undertake an MSc in Psychology of Mental Health at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. Jill insists the decision to move to Scotland was entirely driven by her academic ambitions and not at all by her love of golf and hiking!
Jill’s proudest moment to date is caddying for her Dad in Nairn, Scotland when he won the Senior British Amateur Golf Championship (she still can’t outdrive him sadly - but it's getting close!). When not golfing, Jill’s spare time is spent hiking with her doggy Belle, hanging with friends and family, painting portraits, reading, writing, and baking cakes.
