Jillian Bayoneto is a junior at the University at Albany studying accounting with minors in Italian and business administration. A Long Island native, Jillian found her way to The Schenectady Foundation through being selected as one of the university’s Massry Community Service Fellows. This program encourages students to intern with non-profit organizations and help make a positive impact in local communities. Growing up, Jillian spent her summers in the Capital Region attending music camp, watching concerts at SPAC, and taking day trips to Saratoga. While interning at the Foundation, Jillian strives to develop a greater understanding of accountancy from a non-profit point of view while actively giving back to a second place that she can truly call home.

When she is not in school or work, Jillian enjoys traveling, playing the piano and ukelele, and spending time with her dog.
