Support Superstar Spotlight: Jill
Jill Blog

It’s time for our next installment of Support Super Star Spotlight! In this series, CHAMPS Oncology highlights our registry support specialists in recognition of their tireless efforts of ensuring better data saves lives. This installment features Jill Brown.

Jill has been working in the cancer registry for almost four years. She started her registry journey in October 2016, arriving in the field after it became a calling for her. At the time, she was looking for a job in which she could contribute data in a way that would help aid medical developments in the fight against cancer.

In her daily work, Jill is responsible for casefinding and follow-ups with her assigned client hospital. Jill finds the work fulfilling because it allows her to learn something new every single day. She dedicates the work she does to her mom, who successfully overcame breast cancer and lost her father to pancreatic cancer.

“Cancer has affected every single person in some way, and following up with cancer patients throughout their lifetime is a huge part of learning more about the effects of various treatments,” Jill said. “I enjoy doing a job in which I feel like I am contributing data that will help with furthering advancements in cancer research.”

Jill is a resident of Chesterton, Indiana, a town 30 minutes away from Chicago, Illinois. Living so close to the Windy City, she has the opportunity to indulge in the city’s world-renowned deep dish pizza, one of her favorite meals. At home, she lives with her 15-year-old son, Matthew, and what they dub their mini-zoo: Two guinea pigs named Jimbo and George and two cats named Kelly and Minnie.

Jill’s hobbies outside of work include catching up with the latest movies released on Netflix and reading books. A testament to her love of literature, an item on her bucket list is to meet the legendary author Stephen King, who wrote her favorite book “The Eyes of the Dragon.”

Each installment of CHAMP Oncology’s Support Superstar Spotlight features a registry support team member and recognizes their important work of ensuring better data saves lives. To learn more, follow #SupportSuperstar on social media. What’s your favorite part about working in the cancer registry?
