Jillian joined the School of Communication in January 2019 as Technology Coordinator for the Owl Lab. She is a videomaker herself, with an interest in media theory, archival practices, and experimental narrative video. Her videos has been gaining momentum with screenings at festivals in Portland, Los Angeles, and Mexico. She was recently awarded a Jury's Choice Award at the Onion City Experimental Film + Video Festival here in Chicago. She is always willing to help you with your editing projects and lend an eye for aesthetic advice.

Jillian is also the Site Content Coordinator for the School of Communication. If you find any typos or errors on this site, she kindly asks that you email her ;)

When she's not tending the lab, she is tending to her 100+ houseplants, going for a jog, cooking vegetarian meals, visiting a museum or spending time with her fiancĂ© and the three best cats in the world.
