Jill Binder – Director
Prior to founding FSS, Jill worked for over 10 years as a Food Safety Specialist in meat, bakery and a variety of other food commodity industries which gave her extensive experience in quality, food safety, program building and employee training.
Jill really enjoys the challenge of helping companies start their food safety programs from scratch and assisting facilities in improving their existing programs. She has a hard work ethic, values clients time, has the ability to see the big picture, and at the same time, knows where the details need to be. Although she doesn’t have a creative bone in her body, Jill can “MacGyver up” solutions to challenging situations.
