Her transformation started in 2014 when she made a post on social media asking her friends for a diffuser recommendation and she said “yes” to Young Living. That one “yes” allowed her to build a business that she came to understand was more than just essential oils - but rather, empowerment of mind, body and spirit.

Her vision and drive fueled by working with #TeamYL has created some amazing resources open to all, like the Grow facebook group. The “yes” to Young Living was the catalyst to Jill understanding her purpose and to have the strength to walk forward with that purpose.
