MEET JILLIAN REBEKAH
Host of the Citizen J Podcast
For the past seven years, Jillian has built an excellent reputation as a competent expert in the male-dominated off-road overlanding space. With the Citizen J Podcast, Jillian is sparking a new brand of unscripted campfire conversation where people come to share their story, engage in meaningful dialog, grow together, inspire each other, and challenge the status quo. Through honest conversation, we learn about adventure travel, overlanding, women’s issues, freedom, current events and the road less traveled. This podcast is about spontaneity, discovery, vulnerability, preparedness and mutual respect. Everyone is welcome at her campfire.
Determining her own unique story
After awaking from her metropolitan, middle-American dream—the stressful career in New York which nearly became the death of her—Jillian Rebekah was forced to recalibrate her life. But after Jillian's free spirit disrupted every resemblance of a typical escape plan, Jillian found herself on another perilous path few women dare take. This time it was an adventurous path loaded with risks and rewards. Jillian traded in her city life for a Quicksand 4x4 Tacoma she calls the Mountain Yot. She traded a queen-sized bed for a rooftop tent. She gave up common creature comforts to explore the uncommon beauty of the American West. More importantly, Jillian sacrificed stability and security for the freedom to explore, to become self-reliant, and to encourage women as they determine their own stories.
