Not My Day Job

PRESENTED ON FEB 19, 2015
IN MADISON, WI @ VOL 12

Jill's day job consists of keeping servers humming, business clients happy, and banking regulators satisfied. Over the past 18 months, Jill's passion has become setting goals that challenge her body and mind in ways she never thought possible. She's lost 100lbs in this crazy process, ran several 5Ks, a triathlon, and even an adventure race. CrossFit has become her latest passion. It's hard to go from banker to Olympic lifter, but it's a transition she loves makeing every day.
