About Me

About Me Video from Jillian Knight on Vimeo.


Besides running, I have interests in reading, mostly mystery and thrillers, and I love a good glass of Cavit Pinot Grigio. I greatly enjoy doing both while sitting in front of a fire, or outside in the sun.


I did my Undergrad at The University of Maine in Orono, Maine, with a focus on Marketing. After graduating I moved to south Korea to teach English on and off for four years. I then Enlisted in the Navy for one contract, and now I am working at REI in Virginia Beach while working on my Master’s in New Media Journalism out of Full Sail University.

My passions include being outside, which probably comes from growing up in Maine, doing my part to help take care of the environment, being healthy, and enjoying life. Running as much as I can is the best way I know how to enjoy life, which is why I implore others to try it. It took me years to start enjoying my daily runs, but it was worth it. One of the best ways to start is by signing up for a local 5K event in your area.
