Staff Spotlight: Jill Anderson

March 01, 2018


We are excited to announce the new Associate Executive Director Jill Anderson!"

We are very excited to announce that Jill Anderson has accepted the position of Associate Executive Director at the Greater LaGrange Y!  

Jill Anderson and family joined the Buehler YMCA in 1999. In 2003 when Jill needed to go back work after staying home with her first child, she thought she could bring her sales, management, and organizational skills and experience to her Y. 

She was hired as a Member Experience Supervisor.

After 10 years as MES at Buehler (and 2 more children), Jill was promoted to Member Experience Director at the Elmhurst YMCA. Jill’s next step was as a Member Engagement Director for the Association Performance Team. On the Performance Team Jill had the opportunity to work with centers on implementing, training and reinforcing association standardization, policies, and best practices for membership. For over 3 years on the Performance Team not only has Jill been an association membership subject matter expert but she has had the opportunity to expand her portfolio and support the association by filling vacancies in interim Executive Director roles at Foglia and Buehler.

Jill lives in Palatine with her husband, Ken and children Luke (18), Bridget (15), and Mary (9).  

Feel free to stop and say hi, Jill is looking forward to meeting members!
