Q: Have you ever had a nickname? if so what is it?
Jillybean, Jilly, Jillybee, Wisconsin, Red, Gingersnap….take your pick!
Q: What is something fun or interesting about yourself?
I lived in Portland, OR right after college and loved it there!
Q: What interested you most about AK when applying for the position?
I actually didn’t know there was an open position! But the company was highly recommended and the stars aligned. I have spent my career in material handling so I was excited for an opportunity to stay in the industry and get to know a new product.
Q: What is one thing in the first week that surprised you about AK?
I noticed immediately how committed everyone is to the success of the company and the responsibility each person feels in contributing to that. I came from a much larger company, so that feeling gets diluted as more layers of people are added. I’m excited to find my niche here and take on that same responsibility.
I cannot pick just one, sorry! Part of the deal with my move here is a bottomless supply of New Glarus Spotted Cow in my basement:-) I also love Harpoon’s UFO White, Lakefront’s New Grist, and Dangerous Man’s Hazelnut Porter. I live near Harriet Brewing and absolutely love their beer. I can’t wait to try as many new ones as possible!
I’m a huge Packers fan and a football fan in general. I love a good Milwaukee Brewers game and used to live within walking distance to the stadium. No other strong allegiances, although I hate basketball with a fiery passion.
I’d go back to New Orleans or Winter Park in a heartbeat!
I can’t pick one, so I’ll say the best concert I’ve ever been to was Garth Brooks last year.
