Tell us about yourself!
Hi! My name is Jillian. I am an extremely involved and busy person. Because of this, I am extremely passionate about being a healthy and balanced person. I serve as the Vice President of Membership Development for the Panhellenic council at Ball State where I plan fun events like New Member Greek Academy and Beauty Awareness month. I am also a leader for the Greek Peer Advocacy Program where we instruct groups of Greek students on how to facilitate dialogue with their chapters about sexual assault awareness. I am also a big fan of cooking and binge watching series on Netflix.
