Jill Robinson, Director of Executive Learning & Marketing

It is no surprise that Jill scored a perfect 100 on the extrovert portion of the Myers-Briggs personality test.  Most of Jill's career has been planning state-wide and regional programs for not for profits.  Jill obtained her BA in Art from Samford University before returning to school to earn her Master’s in Organizational Management and then her MBA.  Jill joined the Center's team where she can celebrate others accomplishments in learning, as well as come alongside them to help create new programs that directly support executives careers. On most evenings you can find Jill working out at the local YMCA, which helps her pursue another passion, food and wine at our great Middle Tennessee restaurants.
