We are so excited to welcome Writer and Creative Content Specialist, Jillian Marshall, to the Virago family! Jillian will be blogging daily for Virago Fitness, and working hard to keep our founder, Brittney Hogan's, head on straight. Stay tuned for some awesome articles and feel free to give us your feedback.
Jillian started her career in creative content as a Writer and Editor for Sister Speak Magazine while getting her BA in English from James Madison University. She has worked as freelance writer and is still currently a web editor for UPENDER.org an on-line literary magazine devoted to exposing its readers to the "Art of Consciousness". Jillian has been an advocate for social change since her achievement of the Princeton Prize for Race Relations at the age of 17 and it was her commitment to community service and veteran's affairs that lead her home to Virago. Her love of fitness began at an early age as a Contemporary dancer for the Reston Institute for the Arts as a child and young adult. She has continued to develop her passion for mind-body wellness as a fitness fanatic, attending classes in all things fitness related from Yoga and Crossfit to Bootcamps and Surfing. Her passion for the environment and species conservation has also blossomed through her active and wildlife centred lifestyle.
