Gillian graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in economics, but after spending a little time in the financial world, she reversed course. Memories of jobs she’d had in high school and college, and the chance to work with family, pulled her back into food service. She took over the job of manager at the brand new Market on Market and has never looked back!
Starting from scratch gave her the opportunity to create the market of her vision, and she has steadily built up the operation, in every sense of the word. Shelves were gradually filled, wine and beer were added, and Gill has turned the Market into a solid part of the downtown Frederick scene.
She has also built a crew that reflects her style of cheerful, efficient service. Customers are met with a smile, and treated as friends.
With all this going on, she and her husband Nick, a middle school teacher, have also found time to build a family of two boys and a girl.
