Resilient Jill

Jill is a 39 year old Deer Path resident from Green Bay, WI.  She came to live at Deer Path 7 years ago as a way to gain independence in a safe environment.  What she likes best about Deer Path is the amount of activities available and that residents are able to choose which activities they want to attend. 

In 2022, Jill began leading a bi-weekly series of activities which she calls Freehand Mindfulness Art.  The style of art changes each session and has included Zentangle and neurographic art.  She came up with the idea for this series as a safe, relaxing, and mindful experience for participants.   

When asked what one word would describe her and what she is most proud of, she said “Resilient.  I used to search for answers when I was at the hospital for mental health reasons.  Now it’s been 2 years since my last visit to the hospital.”
