Jillian Hazel
Jillian Hazel grew up halfway between a conservative Dutch farming town and a city of artists and hippies, and it shows. She got her bachelor's degree in English, with minors in business and Bible, and somehow landed in Oklahoma, where she teaches pre-K. She ministers in her church through teaching, mentoring, art, and lots of cooking for crowds. She sometimes tweets at @jilllianhazel.
