“I am inspired by and grateful for my team each day. They are forward thinking, intelligent, and they deeply care about our patients.” -Dr. Jill


Emily Vega, RN

Clinical Nurse Injector

I am most excited to join the Modern GYN team to learn about the dynamic field of women’s health and ultimately become one of their excellent clinicians providing comprehensive and creative health care to women across the lifespan.

I love to be outside doing anything with my family whether it be climbing mountains or surfing the sea!


Kimberly Terrell

Medical Assistant

I feel very fortunate to be a part of Dr. Jill’s team at Modern Gynecology & Skin. The growth I’ve seen in a short time since I’ve started to work here is truly amazing, constantly brainstorming to find new ways to create a place where our clients can look and feel their best!

I’ve lived here in Alaska for a little over 6 years now and would have to say the beauty and endless amount of adventures you’re able to experience are unlike any other place. My free time is usually spent hiking, hunting, fishing, or snowboarding!



Michaela Merrick

Front Desk Coordinator

I am excited to have joined Modern Gynecology & Skin because Dr. Jill offers not only gynecology services but modern up-to-date services for skin and cosmetics procedures. I saw a new path of opportunities with a team that continuously expands their knowledge in new techniques of care.

In my free time, I’m an avid outdoorswoman. I enjoy going on long road trips to a camping destination, exploring new hiking trails in wooded areas or mountain ridges, bike rides with my two children and capturing landscapes or portraits with my canon camera. During the winter, snow days are spent sledding and having hot beverages.



Office Manager

I am excited to be a part of this new adventure with Dr. Jill and Modern Gynecology. The thing that most excites me about being apart of Modern Gynecology is being able to provide cutting-edge cosmetic and aesthetics services to women; making them look radiant and feel rejuvenated. I have been in Alaska for over 30 years. I am a wife, mother of 2 children and step-mother to 4 children. My blended family is like the Brady Bunch! I like spending time outdoors camping with the family, cooking with my husband, baking with my kids, and having a game night with my friends.
