Jill spent her predoctoral internship year training at the Manhattan Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, where she treated veterans with a wide range of mental health and medical diagnoses.

Jill is passionate about understanding the reasons why people think, perceive and behave the way they do. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two kids, practicing yoga, hiking, and cooking healthy organic food.
