Jillian is a career changer and recent graduate from General Assembly’s User Experience Design Immersive program. Her experience as a GA student was so rewarding that she has since signed on to GA’s pilot Alumni Ambassador program, which she helped create. Prior to her pivot into UX, Jillian worked in public education, helping Denver’s 2nd largest Charter Network codify their high school experience for students and families. Additionally, she has experience working with startups and entrepreneurs helping to streamline operations and creating business development opportunities for their organizations. As the UX Producer at Transamerica, Jillian is combining her passions for problems solving, relationship building, operations and systems creation with her UX education. She is always up for stimulating conversation and is thrilled to connect with interesting people. Feel free to ask her to coffee or kombucha!
