Welcome Ms. Jill Van Deventer!

The Department of Psychiatry welcomes Jill Van Deventer to the ‘ohana. Jill will be the primary Administrative Assistant working with the Addiction and Geriatric Psychiatry Fellowship programs as well as the General Psychiatry Program.

She grew up in Ohio but has made Hawaii her home. Relax time is important so look for her at a local beach on the weekend with her husband. Ask her about her adult children and stop by her desk to say hello!
