Jill owns two Seattle cafes, Cloud City Coffee and El Diablo Coffee, both of which take pride in being responsible and active community meeting places. She has been active in SCA since 2012 in various roles, including being a member of the Brew Crew (brewing committee), an SCA Lead Instructor and a licensed Q Grader. She has volunteered many times as a competition judge, product judge, station instructor and instructor. She will embark on roasting in 2019 and is so excited the USA will finally get a chapter. She lives in Seattle with her wife, two daughters, and two cats.

Relevant Experience

I helped shape the new brewing curriculum and am a local leader in Seattle. I see this new chapter having a dual role: outreach to local coffee communities on behalf of the SCA, and providing leadership to the region for all things SCA-related (e.g. competitions, SCA policies, and educational opportunities). Most importantly, I would like to help expand the SCA "brand" regionally so that all feel welcome and know that they have a voice.
