About Jill Catherine 

Jill has been affiliated with Ophelia’s Place since its inception. A collegiate athlete, she was personally impacted by an eating disorder. As a result of her own personal recovery and discovery, Jill connected with Ophelia’s Place and began doing this work as a way to give back and be a part of the solution.

On her journey to wholeness, Jill learned to redefine her relationship to her body, and to life. This experience led her into the field of multicultural dance and drum arts, yoga, and meditation. She is a founding member of Wacheva Cultural Arts, a not-for-profit cultural arts organization and studio in Syracuse, NY, and has been studying, performing, and teaching cultural dance and drum arts for more than a decade. 

Jill has been working as a communications professional since 2002, serving in both for-profit and non-profit environments, including her last post as the Communications Director for the Division of Student Affairs at Syracuse University. Jill blends her passions of expression through the work of 44 Hearts. Its mission of inviting people to live from the heart, integrating as a whole person of body-mind-spirit, is shared through her dynamic keynote performance presentations, engaging workshops, transformative coaching style, and creation of multimedia content.
