Jill Slater Deane is a native Atlantan. She grew up in Henry County and went on to attend University of Georgia. After graduating with a degree in Speech Communications, her love of travel lured her to work as a Delta flight attendant for 10 years. She also enjoyed a short career as a professional organizer, which eventually led her to an interest in non-profit administration. She has been working with Franklin Pond since the fall of 2007. She describes it as the perfect job as it combines working with teens and supporting the arts- two things she’s passionate about.
Jill and her husband live in Virginia-Highland. They share their home with two precocious sons and many rescued cats (another passion). When she’s not working, you may find her volunteering at the Atlanta Humane Society or playing tennis.
Jill’s optimistic personality is a perfect fit for the tone of Franklin Pond. She is indispensible to the organization and cheerfully does anything that needs to be done, except, in her words, anything musical!
