Jill Long works out the Salisbury office as Avery Hall’s chief financial officer. She joined the team in 1998. Her role includes managing and overseeing all financial-related matters and human resource activities for the agency. Jill and her work play an integral part in planning the strategic direction of the agency. She loves helping to educate people so they can make informed decisions. Jill applies that love to both her professional work and community involvement.

One of Jill’s biggest passions is helping others. She spends much of her time outside of work volunteering or supporting different charities through leadership involvement. She currently serves as the board treasurer for Eastern Shore SHRM. Additionally, she is a committee member for Wicomico County Relay for Life and has been a team captain for over 20 years. Jill is also a volunteer teacher for Junior Achievement (JA) of the Eastern Shore.
Her faith has introduced her to several volunteer opportunities that she loves! Jill has volunteered for Vacation Bible School (VBS) at Sailor’s Bethel UMC and currently volunteers for VBS, in the nursery, and on a Finance Committee at Crossroad’s Community Church. She is also the board treasurer for Bethel Historical Society and is on the Parent Teacher Fellowship for Salisbury Christian School.
When she is not volunteering, Jill enjoys gardening, reading, crafts, baking, biking, and spending time with family and friends. Some of Jill’s favorite reads are self-help books. She highly recommends Slight Edge by Jeff Olson!
