My experiences include being a member of the Tennessee Bar (1996-present), National Association of College and University Attorneys, Alliance Defending Freedom Ministry Alliance, and Society of HR Management. I served twelve years in a law practice as a corporate employment attorney and 25 years as an entrepreneur, real estate developer.
As an attorney and entrepreneur, Dr. Jill Rayburn brings her experience from the legal and business world into her classes. She has represented her clients and businesses in negotiating contracts, acquisitions and mergers, real estate development, employment discrimination, and regulatory compliance, as well as, in conducting professional training in HR compliance and best practices. Rayburn recognizes the importance of practical training and education for the business professional in reducing business litigation and increasing productivity.
“I have always enjoyed the challenge of breaking down complex problems into solvable issues and then weaving those individual answers back into a comprehensive solution. In my work with business owners and entrepreneurs for the last 25 years, I have been amazed by the achievements accomplished through the creative solutions dreamed up by business owners and entrepreneurs using their God-given creativity. Being just a small part of weaving those solutions has been the highlight of my career. When God opened the door for me to work with North Greenville University where, not only do the leaders seek daily to glorify God through their creativity and gifts, the mission is to shape students into transformational leaders through a biblical world view, I could not say yes fast enough.”
