Before coming back to KSFY, Jill worked as a reporter in Rapid City at KOTA Territory News.
She hopes to continue reporting for South Dakota for years to come.
Jill grew up in Mountain Lake, Minn., and is a graduate of the University of Sioux Falls. She also spent her freshman year at the University of Minnesota, Mankato.
Jill's interest in journalism started when she was young, with her mother and grandfather both being editors of the local newspaper, the Observer/Advocate.
Even though she spent two years of her college life denying any liking to journalism, the telling of stories that she enjoyed as a kid came back. She has written several articles for the Observer/Advocate and has worked several summers at the newspaper.
She is the youngest of two and has an older brother, Jon, who lives in Minnesota. When Jill is not reporting, she enjoys snowboarding, watching Netflix and spending time with her fiance. Her favorite sports teams are the Minnesota Twins, Minnesota Wild and, of course, the Minnesota Vikings.
Jill is excited to call Sioux Falls, yet again, her home.
