About this Mom...
Jillian has always stepped up to help Pack 149 in whatever way was needed. She has been one of the Pack's leaders and her organization and dedication helps ensure every boy she works with has a chance to advance through Arrow of Light and enjoy their experiences while doing it. Jillian has led multiple Den’s at once -- even while pregnant with her third scout on the way. She is always energetic and supportive of Pack activities and is involved in outdoor activities and respect for our environment and conservation outside of Scouting.
