Jill Schiller is an accomplished leader, a passionate advocate for children, and a mother of two who is proud to call Ohio home.
She understands that strong families and good jobs are essential to our region’s success. The daughter of a union water worker and an office manager, Jill grew up in a Philadelphia home that stressed the core values of hard work, honesty and compassion. She was the first in her family to graduate college. Thanks to that experience, she believes firmly in the power of education. Jill attended a diverse, high performing public high school and went on to obtain a Bachelor’s degree from Ursinus College and a law degree from Temple University College of Law.
Jill gets things done. She practiced law for several years before founding Spells Writing Center, a nonprofit organization focused on children’s literacy and creative writing based in Philadelphia. She then moved to Washington, D.C., to serve in the White House Office of Management and Budget and assist in the launch of the President’s Management Advisory Board. Upon her arrival in Cincinnati in 2011, Jill served as the Senior Vice President of Operations for Downtown Cincinnati Incorporated, where she oversaw a $2.5 million budget to support the economic viability and livability of downtown Cincinnati.
Jill is committed to her community. She is currently the principal at Schiller Consulting Group, which provides strategic and management consulting services to nonprofit ventures in Southwest Ohio. She is also an active member of several nonprofit boards and civic organizations, including the Advisory Board of the Duke Energy Children’s Museum at the Cincinnati Museum Center and the Cincinnatus Association.
Jill is running for Congress to fight for the things that matter most to Ohio families: good jobs, affordable healthcare, access to a great education, and tax cuts for real people, not handouts to corporations and the wealthy.
