Production Manager &
Assistant to the VPO
Since coming onboard in 1999, Jill has worn many different hats during her career at Sunny Day Guide. Originally hired to assist the publication managers and as a voice talent for Sunny Day’s Guideline, she has gone on to manage the Sunny Day Solutions Graphics Department, assists in the management of the Solutions Web Department and is the Assistant to the VPO. First and foremost though, Jill is Sunny Day’s Production Manager, responsible for all aspects of production including ordering paper for all publications, maintaining deadlines and acting as a liaison with the printers. “It is never boring,” she maintains. “I enjoy coming in each morning and seeing what challenges await me, not knowing which direction the day will take.”
Jill’s favorite part of the job is working closely with both clients and vendors to produce quality products, both digital and print, which are creative, informative and ultimately successful for the advertiser and vacationer alike. As technology changes, so do these products and she gets a great deal of satisfaction staying on top of current trends and remaining innovative.
Jill firmly believes that to help your client effectively you must understand what is going on in your area, so she is an active member of the Virginia Beach Hotel Association, Virginia Beach Restaurant Association and the Virginia Hospitality Travel Association.
A graduate of the University of Virginia (Go Hoos), Jill is a Navy brat who has lived in Virginia Beach since the mid-80s. She is the captain of a local Relay For Life team and a committee member for that event, handling the monthly newsletter and competitions. She enjoys Broadway musicals, traveling to new places, reading Stephen King novels and riding rollercoasters. Jill lives with her husband, her amazing daughter, a lovable black lab and two rescue kitties.
