A 20-year veteran of stage and screen, Jill has been teaching acting for 15 years. After graduating with a BFA in theatre from The University of Windsor, Jill continued to train extensively, including studying with Stratford’s Conservatory. She then toured Canada performing both Shakespeare and contemporary theatre. More recently she studied improv in Los Angeles at The Upright Citizens Brigade.
Jill joined Haven Acting Studio in Vancouver as a teacher in 2021, after studying with Ben Immanuel in his “Raising the Bar” class for several years. Nominated for multiple acting awards, Jill loves sharing her wealth of experience to help ambitious veteran and up-and-coming actors find their wings in comedy, drama, and everything in between.
Some selected credits for this genre-hopping performer include:
A Million Little Things, Mean Girls, Supergirl, National Parks, Maid, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Project Blue Book, The Good Doctor, Motherland, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Package Deal, Imaginary Mary, The Haunting of Bly Manor, The Healing Powers of Dude, Benchwarmers, and too many MOWs to count!
Teachers like Jill are hard to come by. She is truly one of a kind. Her compassion and eye for the craft of acting make her the phenomenal teacher and actor that she is. Jill has a wealth of knowledge and offers an undivided focus to all actors she trains and mentors. When I began training with her over 10 years ago, I knew she had something special. I wouldn’t be the actor I am today without her guidance and expertise.”
