As well as being a former Senator, she is a current member of the Board of the Arts Council of Ireland. Jillian has been involved in family history for nearly two decades and in recent years she has concentrated on developing that interest professionally.

Jillian is the 17th person to be admitted as an AGI Affiliate since the Affiliate Programme was introduced in 2012. Nine of her predecessors have already successfully progressed to gaining credentials as Members of Accredited Genealogists Ireland.
