Meet Jill!

Name: Jill Muegge

Position at Commercial State Bank: Marketing Officer, Elkhorn branch

Favorite thing about Elkhorn? I love the combination of the small-town feel with the convenience of a city.

When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up? A dolphin trainer! And then a vet. And then a cruise director. And then a travel channel host. Perhaps I’m indecisive?

What is your favorite thing to do when you aren’t working? I love exploring the new restaurants, pubs, and breweries that are popping up in Elkhorn and Omaha. It is an exciting time for the city! I also love spending time with my awesome nieces and nephews and playing the part of aunt-paparazzi.

Tell us one thing that most people don’t know about you. I used to be horribly, painfully, shy as a child. I outgrew it and my Dad claims that I talk so much to make up for lost time.

Where is the most exciting place you have traveled to? Forbesganj, India near the border of Nepal! Talk about a complete cultural immersion…

What is your favorite weekend getaway? Any place I can go camping and hiking.

Do you have any hobbies? I love to travel and explore new places! The more vaccinations required the better. I also enjoy running, I mean, jogging, road races (mainly for the t-shirt!).

Married? Have any kids? Pets? Nope, nope, nope. (Does that make me a loner?)

What is your embarrassing moment? Ask me the story about “pants” vs. “trousers” mix-up in British English. It’s much better told in person, trust me!

So why did the chicken cross the road? He’s probably indecisive like me.

Have you met anyone famous, and if so who? I think I saw Keira Knightly jogging on a river path in London! It may not have been her, but there were no witnesses so I’m saying that it was.

Do you have a nickname? If so what is it? I’ve been “Jill-o” for as long as I can remember.
