Rancho La Puerta Fitness Staff

Jill Thiry

Specialty: Guest Activities

Jill started her first career in recreation – teaching swimming, skiing, aerobic dance and starting a travel group for the YWCA in Madison WI. Her journey then included international travel, an MBA, and a fun-filled 20 year stint in high tech magazine publishing. Visiting the Ranch after a tough year in 2002 instantly re-ignited her love of fitness and community and love of the great outdoors. In 2013 she tired of down-sizing traditional print magazines, and was ready for a midlife journey change, so she “loaded up her truck and moved to Mexico”.  She discovered that coordinating valuable content for like-minded audiences transfers well from publishing to the magic of the Ranch experience. She now utilizes those skills in the fitness office crafting the schedule and helping to coordinate content and publishing it for guests and staff.  She is passionate about creating sustainable change in one’s life and finds the Ranch Mantra of “Siempre Mejor” a wonderful life philosophy.  She loves to lead or assist with hiking, swimming, chanting, meditating and leading tours, orientations and Take The Ranch Home classes. She is falling into deep like with her new San Diego and Baja territory.
