Meet Jill Noronha, Program Support Specialist

Jill Noronha joins the Faculty of Humanities of Social Sciences as Program Support from the Pilon School of Business. Looking for a new experience, Jill made the switch in August 2016. She is a graduate of Sheridan’s Business Administration – Marketing Co-op program and has spent most of her working career at Sheridan in various departments. At her home-away-from-home, Jill has made many lasting work friendships and is always looking for more.

When Jill is not work, she is usually binge watching a show on Netflix (right now she’s on Star Trek: TNG), reading, trying out new restaurants (suggestions are always welcome), or spending time with her 2 year old niece and baby nephew.
