Before joining Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors in August 2018, Jillian Canode worked at the Grand Rapids Public Library. Her first introduction to Phoenix Society came when we hosted a Burn Awareness Week at the library — and Jillian was our assistant. Several months later, she's a vital member of our team.
Jillian is skilled in project coordination, communications, publishing, and research. She earned her Ph.D. in Philosophy and Literature from Purdue University and went on to teach philosophy, English composition, and literature in the U.S. and abroad. When she's not working, she loves to read, swim, play board games, and listen to podcasts.
