Staff Spotlight – Jill Presler, HR Associate

Jill is an HR Associate in Pediatrics Human Resources.

I’ve been in Human Resources since May 2019- supporting the Department of Pediatrics with overseeing credentialing of new providers and faculty, faculty promotion and annual review processes, license expiration monitoring, and facilitating recredentialing, IPPE and modification of privileges.

My husband Dustin and I recently relocated from Des Moines with our 4 year old Daughter, Quinn. Quinn is passionate about dancing, baby dolls, and Frozen (at this moment). Dustin works for a distributing company out of Cedar Rapids- his passion though, is for his own business working in event entertainment. Check out A Special Event DJ if you are ever in the market for a DJ or photobooth (shameless plug)!

My hobby time is limited- with all the cleaning, laundry, groceries, dance class, etc. – but when possible, I love to craft! My Cricut, sewing machine and I can do all sorts of things! My most favorite pastime is simply enjoying friends and family though- even if the house a mess!

My dream job is to be an event planner and own a wedding venue. I absolutely love paying attention to the details and working to host something special. Whether it be my daughter’s birthday parties or my parents 40th anniversary- I enjoy the opportunity to be creative and the thrill of planning something unique!

Most fascinating place I’ve visited? I went to Ireland in college, it’s the first place I traveled that really took me to experience a new culture and lifestyle. The landscape is breathtaking!

Favorite meal? Tacos. Also, spaghetti, Chinese, and pizza. Soup! I really just like pretty much all food?!

Favorite sports team? Iowa Hawkeyes and Atlanta Braves (osmosis having been with my husband 6 years). But, I’ll be honest, I have zero control over the remote and there is always some sports team on.

Fun fact: I danced for about 15 years- competed in state competitions in High School and competed nationally in College. I once danced live to Lee Greenwood for a basketball halftime.
