Jill is the founder of Outdoor Movement Project and the author of "Southern Maine Trails: A Guide to 100 Hikes for Any Season, Any Age, Any Ability." Her love of outdoor recreation started in childhood and developed during her college years when she spent time hiking in Colorado, Western Mass, California and experienced a life changing Outward Bound course. Since 2014, she has created programs that allow kids to be active in fun ways outdoors, including: bike clubs, running clubs, summer camps, trail challenges, and an outdoor after school program called "OMP Camp" that she recently ran for two years. Originally called Kids Movement Project, the business has evolved over many years and iterations. The name was officially changed to Outdoor Movement Project in 2021. Programs are now focused on inspiring all ages and abilities to spend more time outdoors, where movement happens naturally.
Jill lives in Portland with her husband Tim, their two boys, Finn and Henry, and dog Romy. In addition to writing about trails, Jill works at South Portland Middle School in Functional Life Skills and helps Tim with his business, Timber Ceramics.
