Jillian Niemann





Jillian Niemann (Doherty) has been an industry professional for over a decade which has allowed for a wide range of experience and skill refinement.  Her ability to go with the flow, stay on schedule, think quickly on set, pay attention to fine detail, maintain a positive environment, and style tastefully are all key factors in Jillian's success.

Starting off as a Wisconsin native, she made the decision to follow a dream while on an academic scholarship at the University of Colorado.   Since the day she left to follow her big dream, she has worked consistently to master her craft and pursue an advanced level of professional training.  She has worked with countless celebrities, high profile clients, major television networks, record labels & entertainment clients, athletic organizations, red carpet events, and photo & video shoots across the world.

She is a proud wife & mother and loves spending time around the lake with her family.  Jillian relocated back to Wisconsin a few years ago after spending many years based in Nashville & Chicago.  She is available for travel and regularly works in Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, Green Bay, and across the country.
