During the TEDxTalks, she said she could always make people at least willing to listen or engage someone enough to listen to what she has to say. 

Jill says to advance in comedy and to deserve it, one has to make a personal effort to write, and re-write must joke and make it count no matter how many hands are extended to you to help you re-write. She knew she had to do it alone to develop her comedy or for herself.

She is a doting mother of two.
