Jill King - Editor of The Scout Guide Jackson Hole

I joined The Scout Guide Jackson Hole in January of 2019 and this was just a bit National wrote about me….

A southern girl raised near Louisville, Kentucky, Jill found her way to Boulder, Colorado, for college, and then went on to call New York City home for almost five years. Working at 51st Street and 5th Avenue for a real estate firm in their marketing department by day and performing and writing music at the folk clubs in the West Village at night, she loved the city and everything it offered.

While pursuing her dream to make a living performing, Jill accepted an offer for a full-time singing job from an aunt who ran the Wort Hotel in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Soon after arriving out west, she met her husband, Jason, a rancher and real estate developer. They started a family while Jill enjoyed a full-time singing career, recording CDs in both Nashville and Austin, and raised their three young ladies in both Chappell Hill, Texas, and Jackson, Wyoming, and now call Jackson Hole their home full-time.

After becoming a TSG member last year, Jill saw firsthand the extensive value TSG offered, and realized it would be a natural fit for her now full-time styling business, in which she styles for real estate photography shoots, interior design firms, and private clients. When she found out that the previous owner was ready for new challenges, she jumped at the opportunity to take over as Editor/Owner. Already versed in event planning, blogging, and social media for her own business, Jill is looking forward to supporting the unique members in her one-of-a-kind western ski town.
