Client Services Director, Case Management

Jill is a native of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and a lifelong Steelers fan. After graduating from Ohio University, she moved to New England where she earned a Master's degree in Social Work at the University of Connecticut and a Master's degree in Public Health from the University of Massachusetts.

Jill began working with people living with HIV in 1989 while working in Child Protective Services in Massachusetts, and after moving to Rhode Island began at AIDS Care Ocean State in 1993. She has held a number of full-time and part-time positions at AIDS Care Ocean State while also working in many other settings including Harvard University, Providence College, Rhode Island Hospital and Women & Infants Hospital. Jill is most proud of the way AIDS Care Ocean State has constantly evolved to meet the needs of HIV+ Rhode Islanders.

When not working, Jill enjoys traveling, spending time with lifelong friends & family, and being out with her Jack Russell Terrier exploring Providence.

“Working at AIDS Care has made me a better Social Worker and taught me so much about the power of connection. The strength of our clients continues to inspire me every day.” - Jill Sabatine
