Jill Paulson


Jill is a longtime barre enthusiast and was thrilled to find The Dailey Method when she first moved to Mercer Island in 2015.  Barre Rev brings her joy; she values the strong community vibe, the top-notch instructors and the fact that the classes never seem to get easier.  

While she has lived many places (Philadelphia, Atlanta, New York, New Orleans, San Francisco, Vancouver), she's happy to now call Mercer Island home.  Jill lives on the south end of the island with her husband, their two young children, and a cockapoo named Chicken.  

When she's not at Barre Rev or parenting, Jill enjoys volunteering at the Mercer Island Thrift Shop, watching reality television and going to bed by 9pm.
