Meet our Nomads: Jillian Ricciardelli

What motivated you to join The Remote Experience?

I had been working remotely from my 600 sq. ft. apartment in Boston, MA for the last 2 years and was ready for a change of scenery. Rather than relocating to a new city or looking for a new job, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to cure my travel bug without uprooting my entire life that I have made for myself in Boston. 

Did you work remotely prior to joining The Remote Experience? 


Where were you based out of prior to starting this trip?

Boston, MA

Biggest thing you hope to learn during the four months?

Working from home there is so much that I feel like I miss out on by not being surrounded by coworkers in an office everyday. Especially since I am still in the very early stages of my career. I'm really cherishing this time with my new remote co-workers who come from all different places and backgrounds. Each conversation is an opportunity to learn something new. I'm hoping that all of these collective conversations will make me a better marketer, traveler and well-rounded individual. 

Country you are most excited to visit?

Its hard to pick just one! But probably Italy because that is where most of my ancestors are from (plus its foodie heaven). 

Food you’ll miss the most from back home?

Lobster roll from Ford's in Noank, CT.
