"I realized, after having one 30-minute session with Jill, that she was the coach I needed in my corner to veer me in the right direction as I auditioned for College... I am now an upcoming freshman at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, where I will take the many gifts Jill gave me and utilize them as I pursue my BA in Theatre. I implore anyone who wishes to excel in their abilities as an actor and artist to sign up for Jill's private coaching."

Xavier Love 

"Working with Jill opened my eyes to new ways of approaching my craft.

Her experience as a director, a stage and screen actor, playwright, and a Meisner instructor is invaluable because she understands and can teach all aspects of how to mine a script and then help you use that knowledge to consistently produce a solid performance.

Plus, she's always open to new ideas and just plain fun to work with - you can't find a better combination that that!"
