Dr. Jill Welkley earned her PhD. in Psychology/Exercise Science from the University of Georgia, her MS in Exercise Science/Health Promotion from the University of Delaware, and her BS in Exercise Science from Ithaca College. She is currently an associate professor in the Emory College of Arts and Sciences at Emory University in Atlanta. In her over twenty year career at Emory she has advised hundreds of students across many academic majors and milestones from first year to senior, graduate school to careers in professional disciplines and beyond.
Developing prolonged/personal relationships with students, recognizing student strengths and passions has been at the forefront of her advisement work. Personalizing the ‘college planning’ process from pre-admission, admission and beyond has been a meaningful part of her career. Jill, her husband Daniel and their daughters Kendall and Avery have lived in Suwanee for over 20 years. Both her daughters attended North Gwinnett High School and both currently attend the Georgia Institute of Technology with Kendall graduating May 2019 and Avery May 2022.
