Jill served at Binghamton University in New York for over 15 years, most recently as Interim Dean of Libraries. She brings senior-level managerial experience to West Chester University in library management and administration, assessment, research and instructional services, collection development, information literacy and public services, among many other related areas.  
Before joining WCU, Jill served on numerous library professional organization boards and committees from the local to national level. She will represent WCU Libraries at regional library organizations, including the Partnership for Academic Library Collaboration & Innovation and Keystone Library Network. She currently serves on two committees for Core: Leadership, Infrastructure, Futures, an American Library Association division. She has also presented and published on library leadership, emergency planning, collection development and assessment, and space planning, among other topics.
