Jill Flynn looks forward to using her many years of experience with nonprofits, as well as her extensive background in marketing and publicity, to help make Mills-Peninsula the #1 hospital in the Bay Area.
From 2005 to 2006, Jill served as Board Chair of Peninsula Family Service. She served on the board for 12 years. In 2007, she was elected as an honorary life member. In 2005, she was honored by Gentry Magazine as one of 10 Outstanding Volunteers on the Peninsula. In the same year, she received the National Family Week Advocacy Award. During the 1990’s, Jill was a board member of Crystal Springs Uplands School and enjoyed being Dinner Dance and Publicity chairman of the Hillsborough Concours d’Elegance.
In May of 1990, she founded the company Glimmers Inc. which designs and markets exclusive light up designs to customers nationwide. The company’s motto “We Make Life a Little Bit Brighter” is exactly how Jill wishes patients to feel about their stay at Mills-Peninsula.
Earlier in her career, Jill was a freelance writer for the Los Angeles Times and Chicago Tribune which gave her the writing and communication skills that she says are so necessary in her current endeavors. A graduate of Northwestern University, Jill has enjoyed living in four of this country’s greatest cities: Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. She and her husband John are proud parents of three grown children and three adorable granddaughters.
