Jill Duff-Hoppes, Staff Writer

Jill, a former arts writer for the Orlando Sentinel and Sanford Herald newspapers, covers the arts scene in Seminole County for all three publications.

Jill is passionate about two things: the arts and animals. Fortunately, she says, she has the privilege of writing about one of her passions.

Jill’s favorite thing about working for Lake Mary Life:
“I love that all three magazines put a priority on covering the visual and performing arts in our community. I enjoy working for a business that understands the profound impact that art can have on people's lives. Another thing I really enjoy is seeing and hearing people's reactions when I mention who I write for. Talk about name recognition – and in a good way!”
