Author of Unlonely Planet and founder of The Joy List

Oh, hey! I'm Jillian.

I’m a professional community builder, public speaker and writer. I help companies like MOO, Contently, and Meetup create connection.

I’m most known for being the founder of The Joy List, a weekly newsletter on a mission to make the world less lonely. I’ve been sending it out every Monday morning for two and a half years in New York City.

The Joy List currently has an audience of over 10,000, and is expanding to cities around the world this year.

I also created The Joy List Social, a monthly event where you can show up by yourself and leave with a new friend. Our New York City edition sells out, and is so popular that people started selling fake tickets. That’s how much folks are craving connection.

Last thing: I write about corporate community-building for Convene and published a book, called Unlonely Planet, in July.
