Application Questions

Jill Pick

Program Coordinator

I have been employed by USD since January 2012. I joined GME in June 2018. I'm always here to help so don't hesitate to reach out to me.

Favorite places I love to take my dog: Falls Park, Palisades Park, Sertoma Park as well as downtown to view the sculpture walk. I love to go to all the local antique shops and the various summer farmers markets and flea markets. I'm also a concert junkie who loves all the local venues (Premier Center, The District, etc.)
