Jill Featherstone is a mother of 5 and step-mom to 3. She is a wife, a grandmother, a university instructor, and now an author. For the first half of her career, Jill taught middle school. Then in 2011 after obtaining her Master’s degree Jill went on to become a University Instructor teaching in the bachelor of education program for University College of the North in Northern Manitoba.
Jill is also the founder of Featherstone Support Services, a business which provides motivational workshops for Indigenous youth and young adults. To date she has helped hundreds of Indigenous youth and young adults find the motivation, courage and confidence to go back to school and enter into the workforce.
In 2013 she began writing her novel The Tale of Tiger Lily. Inspired by the character created by J.M. Barrie’s 1929 play Peter Pan. In Jill’s rendition, she takes us back in time and into the world of the fictitious Piccaninny Tribe and into the mind of the young Tiger Lily as she comes of age. In this relatable story, Jill blends cultural resonance with a classic tale… and boldly rewrites an age-old narrative.
