Welcome to our Newest Employee: Jill King!

Welcome Jill King! Jill began employment on Monday with the City of Fairbanks in the Human Resources Department as an Administrative Assistant.

Jill has lived in Alaska since 1990 and in Fairbanks since 1992. Originally from North Dakota and Montana, Jill came to Anchorage in 1990 where she met her husband, Larry. In 1992 she relocated to Fairbanks, where her husband was born and raised and where they have been raising their 11-year-old daughter, Megan. She loves spending time with her family and also enjoys being outdoors berry picking, gardening, and camping. In the winter she loves to read.

Jill has worked as an administrative assistant, purchasing agent, and program technician. She has a B.B.A. in Business Administration and an A.A.S. in Paralegal studies. She was lucky to take time away from the work force to spend time with her daughter, Megan.
