JILL PODSIAD comes to SCVG from Mammoth Lakes, Ca. She has been a full time Surgical Technologist for the last 10 years, as well as a medical and physical therapy assistant. She loves working with young people, and is passionate about proper nutrition and teaching young athletes how to prepare their bodies nutritionally so they can perform optimally on the field and in everyday life. This passion emerged from wanting to be good role model to her three sons and it intensified after learning her middle son (Evan) needed a heart transplant in 2013.
Fast forward 5 years, and after a little help from the Make A Wish Foundation, Evans dream of marching with DCI had come true and Jill and her son (with his new heart) were on the road with Pacific Crest and she has loved being a part of DCI ever since.
