Jill's (maternal) great-great-grandmother Gertrude, was a full-blooded Chippewa Native American Indian. She was also a Medicine Woman and Healer who married John Bear, a full-blooded Seneca Indian. Gertrude's family migrated into New York from Canada. Eventually, Gertrude and John Bear settled in the western part of the state. Widely known for her psychic gifts and mediumship, Gertrude mentored Jill's grandmother Marie, who in turn, nurtured and taught Jill how to hone her own gifts.
Born 'in the caul' or with a veil over her face, Jill's first experience as a Medium occurred after her paternal grandfather passed away. Jill was approximately 3-years-old at the time of this experience. It was then that her (paternal) grandmother Esta contacted Marie and shared the exchange of information - something that as a young child, Jill had no way of knowing and had been kept in the deepest of confidence between Esta and Jill's grandfather.
In addition to being an astute Medium, Jill's gifts include: clairsentience, clairaudience, claircognizance, and clairalience. Jill also has strong precognition, as well as retro-cognition. Many of her predictions are documented in her Dream Diary. Excerpts of Jill's Dream Diary are published on her blog, The Sublime and Supernatural, and can be found here. On occasion, Jill has also posted visions on her Facebook Fan Page prior to the unfolding of the event(s). Many of these visions have shocked her family, friends and fans, and include natural disasters, terrifying national and international events, and a horrifying vision detailing that "planes were falling from the sky like rain" a mere two days prior to the attacks on September 11th, 2001.
Possessing unusual aptitude, Jill's method of connecting spirit with living ancestor has even resulted to a rather unconventional way of investigating ancestral lines. By conducting hours worth of free, private consultations, Jill helped one family with their genealogical research by identifying deceased family members thru her readings. This information was independently verified with two, confirmed, DNA matches.
