Jillian De Jesus

Office Assistant

I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. While up north, I worked in an optometry office for 8 years doing billing, coding and sales. After relocating to Florida in 2012, I started in Lakeland as a billing specialist and Operations Manager for a durable medical equipment company. I then relocated to the bay area and began working in a prosthetics department before joining the office of Dr. Julian Menendez, DPM. I look forward to building many new relationships with the patients as I have before in my other fields.
