About Us

Our Team

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.

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.
