5 Questions with Jill Roesler, MSPC Project Manager
By Chelsey Rohrbacher | October 18, 2022
Jill Roesler got into project management after numerous editors in previous roles commented on her intense organization skills. Today, she works with MSPC clients to steward a range of projects through every step, from discovery all the way through debrief.
What three words would your colleagues use to describe you?
Dedicated: My dedication to this role is threefold: I am dedicated to our MSPC teams, the client/client team and the success of the overall project.
Approachable: I’d like to think I foster an environment for all project team members to share their opinions and ideas. It’s those small, one-off thoughts that sometimes shift the direction of a project for the better!
Honest: Transparency and honesty with the client and the MSPC teams is one of my greatest career values, which I practice daily.
What has been your favorite MSPC project and why?
I like working on projects that expand my own wheelhouse and contain deliverables I haven’t worked with yet. The Next Avenue project was just that: a website audit, competitor SWOT and a new approach to customer journey mapping that I hadn’t experienced before. The findings were fascinating and it really showed me how talented those at MSPC are! (Especially since this project was early in my career here.)
What skill, hobby, experience, etc., do you have that would surprise people?
Although I’m a project manager here, I’m also a published author. I’ve written several educational children’s books and had my own byline in a community newspaper. I’ve also written for various magazines and company blogs. Oh, and I often take my cat for walks around the neighborhood nearly every day in the spring, summer and fall!
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? Why?
For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to own a candy store called “Jilly Beans,” overflowing with gummy candies, artisanal chocolates and a full ice cream bar. It’s never too late!
