Along with her sister, director Debra Eisenstadt, Jill served as co-writer and co-producer of the 2006 feature film, The Limbo Room. Jill has taught at the Bennington College July Programs, through Teachers & Writers Collaborative and at Eugene Lang, The New School and was an editor at BKLYN and COLUMBIA magazines.
