Jill Campbell is the visionary behind Safety Alert Apps, Inc.. She didn’t get into the world of safety apps with a background as a software developer, venture capitalist or even a website entrepreneur.
As principal of Campbell Tax and Financial Services, Sun Valley, California she tends to the financial health of hundreds of clients and thinks in terms of risk management. It was from that perspective, and as a woman and a mother, that she recognized the need for a multifunctional personal protection safety system that would fit any lifestyle, from college students, to working women, to athletes, and would fit any industry from educators, to flight attendants, to and beyond.
To bring her concept to fruition, Jill assembled a team that began working with an incubator for tech start-ups. This team of dedicated professionals translated into code the ideas she had sketched out and in September 2011 Jill’s idea became a reality. WatchMe911™, a personal protection safety app for women, was launched in the iTunes App Store.
From the success of WatchMe911 came her company’s next app, OnWatchOnCampus. Designed to fit the lifestyle of college students “OnWatch™” won the prestigious White House Apps Against Abuse Technology challenge.
Jill was thrilled and deeply gratified when Vice President Biden invited her to the White House on April 18, 2012 to mark the formal launch of OnWatch™ in the iTunes App Store and on Google Play.
Because workplace violence is an increasing concern for employers and employees in the public and private sector across the country, Jill’s company has just completing development of its third app, SafeWatch TEAM™. Currently the Department of Homeland Security Public/Private Partnership is reviewing the app for national distribution to schools across the US.
Jill and her company are continuing to innovate and develop other mobile app products that will increase the quality of life for many different segments of our society.
