What most people don’t know about you?

  • I was a performer in the opening ceremony for the 1996 Olympics, in Atlanta. As an “audience leader”, we engaged people from all over the world in some of the opening ceremony performances.
  • I bring my dog, a 7-year old golden retriever, to work every day! She’s the Camp Twin Lakes therapy dog.   A great perk, and a wonderful conversation-starter with literally everyone.

For 30 years, Camp Twin Lakes (CTL) has provided life-changing camp experiences to thousands of Georgia’s children and adults with serious illnesses, disabilities, and other life challenges. Camp Twin Lakes provides week-long summer camps and year-round weekend retreats at its three fully accessible and medically supported campsites. CTL collaborates with nearly 80 community nonprofit organizations, each serving a unique population or diagnosis, to create customized programs that teach its campers to overcome obstacles and grow in their confidence and capabilities. Annually, Camp Twin Lakes serves nearly 10,000 campers, leverages support from over 3,700 volunteers, and subsidizes 70% of the direct camp costs for every camper served.  At CTL, campers build community and create a “home” where they return each year to grow in their wellness, self-acceptance, sense of belonging, and self-efficacy.  In April 2023, Camp Twin Lakes will open its third campus, adding capacity to serve 3,500 more campers. This will allow CTL to grow with its current partners and serve new populations, like youth with mental health diagnoses and children living in domestic violence situations, who will benefit from therapeutic camping programs.

After nearly 25 years as a hospital administrator, Jill fell in love with the mission of Camp Twin Lakes, while serving as a volunteer camp counselor for children learning to live a healthier life with type 1 diabetes. As an adult thriving with type 1, Jill knew first hand how difficult it could be to learn complex carbohydrate counting and insulin adjustments, and how important it was to have a community and support system to provide education and encouragement.   From camp counselor, to Board member, and now to CEO, Jill loves being part of the incredible mission and Camp family.   Jill has her BA from Vanderbilt University and MBA and Master of Health Administration from Georgia State University.
