Hidden Gems: Meet Jill Devine

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jill Devine.

Jill, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
I’m best known for being an on-air radio personality in the St. Louis market, where I spent over 20 years at numerous radio stations in the area. During my last year in radio, I created a podcast, Two Kids and A Career. I created it because once I became a mom, I started noticing all these things about being a working mom, things no one was talking about. The podcast is an outlet to talk openly and without fear of being judged or shamed. The conversations are real, raw, emotional, and knowledgeable. I continue to host the podcast and new episodes launch every Wednesday.

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road, but the road is starting to smooth out. When my radio career came to an end, I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. In all honesty, I thought I would get back into radio sooner than later. I didn’t think I would be reinventing my career. That’s what has happened, and it has been one of the biggest blessings I’ve received. I’m now an entrepreneur (founder and owner of Jill Devine Media), and I’ve entered into another career, ministry! I’m working for my church, Messiah Lutheran Church, as the Community Groups Coordinator. Community Groups are a way for individuals to connect relationally and grow spiritually. During this time of transition, I experienced lots of ups and downs. Probably more “downs” than “ups”, but what I made sure to do was not suppress any of those feelings. In order to heal and grow from challenges, you have to face them head-on.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?

We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on luck and what role, if any, you feel it’s played for you?
Sometimes I have to wonder if luck is really a “thing”. As I grow my faith, I realize that God is the creator of my “luck”, good and bad.
