Jillian, a Minnesota native, started entertaining as a young girl singing out of her living room window to her friends in the neighborhood. She began her professional career modeling in Florida that eventually led her into acting for commercials and films. She has had the opportunity to study her craft in both Los Angeles and Florida helping her to land one of her first roles, where she spent over two weeks in Morocco filming the action thriller "Real Premonition" and since has been in over 25 feature films including: Prime of Your Life, Scare Zone, Waste of Space, Contract Killers, Brainjacked, The Uh Oh Show and Exit 727. Jillian has also been seen on Spry TV's "Walk on Water" and the Lifetime TV series "Drop Dead Diva".

She has worked on over 60 commercials and infomercials either on camera or as voice over talent and modeled for hundreds of companies including: Publix, Bealls, Dillards, Columbia Sportswear, Harley, Corvette, Disney, Universal Studios, Florida's Natural Orange Juice, Bright House Networks, Hyundai, Toronto Blue Jays, Reebok, Nike, Shop NBC, The Home Shopping Network, Rockettes Radio City Christmas Spectacular, The Daily Buzz, The Day Time Show and Studio 10.

Jillian has an adorable son with her cinematographer/director husband, Dave A. Barrett. Together they started their own company, Moonphase Productions, and have produced a few projects together.

Her passion for organic products and natural living has driven her to create a line of therapeutic aromatherapy products for her company Organic Reverence®, which is currently in the process of opening a new storefront in Clearwater, FL in Spring of 2019!

When shes not meditating, energy clearing, doing yoga or playing with her crystals, you can usually find her hanging out with her family in IRB!
