Face Time with Jill Miller

Geneva resident Jill Miller, 59, was walking at the Charlestowne Mall when she answered 11 questions from the Kane County Chronicle’s Al Lagattolla.

Where did you grow up? Lancaster, Pa.

Do you have pets? Two dogs, Cooper and Smiley. One is a mutt, and the other is a Jack Russell.

What was your first job? A racquetball pro, in Lancaster

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Something in the medical field. I was pre-med in college but didn’t have the stomach for it at the end of the day.

So you played racquetball professionally. How good were you? A club player. But I was also a marathon runner.

Do you still run marathons? I haven’t run one in eight years.

Do you come to the mall every day? Normally, I’m an outside runner. But it’s too cold.

Are you excited about the mall’s future possibilities? I didn’t live here when it was new and wonderful. Things are changing. It’s sad. People go to the Geneva Commons. … But it’s great to walk here.

Is there a book you would recommend? “Eisenhower in War and Peace.” It’s a biography.

Do you have a favorite local restaurant? I like Urban Grille.

What is an interesting factoid about yourself? I paint antique maps. I took art as a child, and that probably would have been one of the things I wanted to do. I took a weekend class. I took a class from Connie Brown, who was the pre-eminent map maker. … I learned how to do it from her.
