Jillian discovered her passion for Graphic Design while attending Colorado State University. After graduating in 2017 with a BFA in Graphic Design, she and her boyfriend (at the time), Noah, moved up to Bozeman so he could attend grad school at Montana State University. While he was working on his Master's, Jillian found the opportunity to put her passion to use for The Gem Gallery in 2018, having been drawn in by the aesthetic and style of this unique local business. Later that year, Noah commissioned a BEAUTIFUL engagement ring from The Gem Gallery right under Jillian's nose and proposed! Still getting used to referring to him as "fiance", you can occasionally catch her slip up and call him her boyfriend. When she isn't admiring all of the jewelry she gets to play with at work, Jillian enjoys drawing, playing video games, and spending time with Noah and their dog, Tesla.
