About me

My name is Jillian and I am your local Publisher and Editor for Macaroni KID! With two school-aged kids and a toddler, I am always on the go and looking for fun things to do. I also enjoy contributing to our household and being an active member of my community. When I was the Treasurer and then President of Chico Mothers' Club, I learned so much about attending and hosting events, all the local happenings, and the importance of finding your village. I'm so excited to share everything I have learned with you!
