Jill Rea

After transitioning from a career as a classical musician (violist), I embarked on a dynamic professional journey encompassing sales, event planning, marketing, and business operations. With a strong passion for entrepreneurship and a keen interest in the startup ecosystem, I've successfully scaled a mid-sized startup to an established organization and spearheaded the growth of a blockchain real estate asset investment startup from inception to its first milestone. Currently, I'm actively seeking my next opportunity as a Chief of Staff, leveraging my expertise to drive strategic initiatives and facilitate operational excellence. As an engaged member of this professional community, I'm eager to connect with like-minded individuals, explore new projects, expand my network, acquire valuable skills, and contribute insights and guidance based on my own experiences. On a personal note, I enjoy cross-country mountain biking on Mt. Tam and honing my newfound piano skills.
