Jill Pulliam,  Owner, and CEO

Jill Pulliam (formally Preston) has spent more than 28 years in the health care arena helping families as they struggle through the maze of long-term care.   Most of the education offered to families today, comes while in a crisis, or from those with an agenda to sell services.  Long Term Care centers do a great job with offering guidance,  but unfortunately, due to the heavy load, process management errors, and policy misunderstanding, denial of benefits are frequent costing families and facilities millions of dollars in unreimbursed care.  Jill felt strongly that more could be done to assist families and facilities in lightening this heavy load. Benefit Results was her answer.

Jill graduated from Willamette University in Salem, Oregon.   She has spent her career being an advocate for those needing a voice and being a catalyst between state and federal benefits for both providers and families.
