Jillian moved to Coeur d'Alene in July of 2006 and shares that she is grateful to live in such a family-oriented town. "Growing up in the beautiful mountain town of South Lake Tahoe, California, I always knew I wanted to live somewhere that had a strong sense of community," said Jillian.
She and her husband, who is a chef, have five boys, which keeps their household active with soccer, T-ball, baseball and swimming competitions. When she does have spare time, Jillian enjoys taking the boys on walks and hikes, going to the beach and being in the outdoors enjoying all the natural beauty of North Idaho.
Her passion for cooking and wine is evident as she shares with our readers the many options available in the Inland Northwest for enjoying a meal out or touring one of our local wineries.
She enjoys her work and shares that with such a large emphasis in our area on the hospitality industry, she has ample opportunity to explore the various businesses
"It is so important to get to know your local businessmen and women and to have a better appreciation for all those who contribute in making our community the great place it is," she said. "It is nice to be able to put a face to a name, to get to know the people behind the food."
