Jillian Smith

Jillian started running track at Southern Regional Middle School in New Jersey as a way to stay in shape for soccer. A few years later, an inspiring cross-country coach convinced her to hang up her cleats and join the high school cross-country team. Jillian continued her running career at the University of Michigan, where she focused on the 3000 and 5000. After completing her undergraduate and master’s degrees at Michigan, Jillian moved to Washington D.C. and currently works as a federal consultant for Booz Allen Hamilton in their Homeland Security account.  With GRC, Jillian is looking forward to transition to road racing, focusing on 5ks and 10ks, and continuing to enjoy the sport with her teammates.
