Person smilingJill Borrelli, LICSW (she/hers)

Jill Borrelli, LICSW is very excited to join the Board at Samaritans! During college, she volunteered at a crisis center and her experience there led to her decision to become a social worker — and more importantly, the realization of the power in being fully present with another person.

Jill has worked at Tufts Health Plan for nearly 20 years. She is currently the Director of Appeals, Grievances, and Operations Business Performance. In this role, she oversees multiple teams focused on operational efficiency, strategic planning, compliance, and program development. In addition, she is the adviser for the Tufts Health Plan LGBTQ+ business resource group, on the enterprise mentoring team, and is a mentor.

Jill has a BA in sociology from Miami University and a Master’s in Social Work from Boston University. Before her time at Tufts Health Plan, Jill worked for many years as a child and family therapist and later a clinical director of a treatment program for adolescent girls.

Jill lives in Framingham with her wife and two children. She is actively involved with Under the Same Moon, a nonprofit organization that supports a school community in Guatemala.
