Jill has a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of South Florida and an MBA from the University of Tampa. She worked for Tampa Electric Company for 28 years, mostly as a project manager in commercial and industrial construction and also in Regulatory Affairs as a business analyst and economic researcher. She worked for the City of Tampa for 5 years as the Manager of Audit and Contracts for the Solid Waste Department, managing over $100M in contracts. She is currently the Director of Solid Waste for the City of Plant City, where she has served the community for over 6 years. She has worked part-time as an adjunct professor of economics for over 7 years.
Jill is a proven transformational business leader in the private and public sectors. Her extensive experience in budgeting, contract management, operational efficiency, project management, and on-line learning platforms will be of significant value to improving the Polk County school district.
Jill will take an active role in improving the quality of education for all students and strengthening the focus of curriculum on reading, writing and math. She will work to make Polk’s school system a model for other counties in Florida for turning out workforce-ready adults who contribute positively to the communities in which they live and work.
Jill is committed to:
1. Improve the academic performance record of Polk County schools
2. Increase the focus of school curriculum on academics, not social/political ideologies
3. Raise transparency of the school board with parents, teachers, students and community
