She came in second behind Nicole O'Brian of Texas in the swimsuit competition. She was crowned by Ashley Coleman of Delaware, Miss Teen USA 1999.

She completed her Ph.D. in Public Health with a focus on Health Policy at the Johns Hopkins University in 2012 following a Master's in Public Health from the University of New Mexico in 2007 and a B.S. in Biobehavioral Health from Penn State University in 2004. In June, 2006, Jillian married Dr. Roderick Fry, a physical chemist from Kendall, NY. They were married in Langhorne, PA, in a simple Quaker ceremony.
