Meet the Chair of the Candidate Reference Group

We asked Trini Jacial Lillo, Chair of the Candidate Reference Group, past candidate, and member of the ADC Assessment Committee to introduce herself.

Tell us a little about your role with the ADC. 

As a member of the Assessment Committee, my role involves contributing to the review of processes, analysis of data and development of strategies aimed at enhancing the overall quality of the different procedures involved in the ADC assessment and examination process.  

As the Chair of the CRG, I facilitate meetings where appointed candidates chosen to represent their peers contribute to the improvement of the whole process by sharing their experiences, expressing their opinions and providing feedback about different aspects of the ADC journey.  

As a successful former candidate, I see myself as a link between the candidates and the ADC, bringing a unique perspective to my roles. 

How long have you worked with the ADC? 

I’ve had the privilege of working with them since October 2023, but as a former candidate I’ve been involved with them for a lot longer than that.  

What is one thing on your ‘bucket’ list? 

Learn to play the guitar (really well). 

What can’t you live without? 

I am not too attached to any material possessions, so I’ll say my beautiful family and my morning coffee. 

What do you do to relax? 

Dance, dance, dance.  

If you could have a superpower, what would it be? 

Teleportation without a doubt.  

What is your guilty pleasure?  

Reese’s ice cream with loads of Ice Magic (after I put my kids to sleep).
