Approximately thirty years ago, Jill was introduced to the law profession, and she has never turned back. Her first experience was in 1993 while completing her college internship at The Law Office in Grafton, North Dakota.

In 1997, Jill moved to Greenbush, Minnesota, and thoroughly enjoyed working at the Roseau County District Court as a Deputy Clerk for thirteen years. A quick move to Minot, North Dakota, in 2011 found Jill at the law firm of Pringle & Herigstad PC, as a legal assistant. Eventually in 2014, Jill would make her way back to the Red River Valley continuing her career and interest in law.
