Jill Denton is the Office Manager at Baker Milligan. Jill studied at Purdue University with a concentration in Elementary Education.
We sat down with Jill to get to know her a little better and asked her hard hitting questions like, "What are the top three highlights of your life?"
Here's what she had to say.
What do you like best about working for Baker Milligan?
The wonderful environment. The moment you walk in the front door, you can feel the warmth from everyone. Each person is always very willing to help out in any way they can. I am glad to be a part of such a great team.
If you could do another job for just one day, what would you do?
I would be a performer on Broadway. I’ve always had a love of singing and dancing.
What is your favorite vacation spot?
My favorite vacation spot is Las Vegas. There are so many exciting things to do and I never get bored—always on the go.
What is your favorite motto?
“You are not your mistakes.”
What is one thing you couldn’t live without?
I couldn't live without my children. But on a lighter side, it would be bubble baths. That’s the best way to end a stressful day. ;)
What would you most like to tell yourself at the age of 13?
Focus more on your school work, as opposed to your social life. It really does make a difference in your future.
What are the top three highlights of your life?
The births of my two children, and my wedding day. I was told that I would never be able to have children due to a medical condition, but with the aid of fertility doctors, we were blessed with not only one child, but two.
What would people be surprised to know about you?
I have a huge fear of cats!

The spring season is here! In addition to taxes, many of us want to take care of some overlooked cleaning tasks. Procrastination often creeps in when it comes to cleaning—especially our offices.
