Hilary has spent her entire career building relationships and community connections, creating safe environments and empowering others. In 2009, Hilary felt called to leave her successful career in education and became an AmeriCorps volunteer. Since that time, she has devoted her life to working with vulnerable populations. Over the past ten years, she has worked with families and young mothers experiencing homelessness, individuals with addictions and mental illness, people living with HIV, and women survivors of human trafficking. She brings a trauma-informed approach to every encounter and is committed to honoring and respecting the needs of all people.
