Hillary grew up in Southwest Florida and attended Florida State University where she obtained a Bachelor’s in Communication Science and Disorders in 2013 and a Master’s in Speech-Language Pathology in 2015. During graduate school she was selected for a competitive grant through the US department of education to work with medically fragile conditions and learning disabilities. The grant also focused heavily on parent and caregiver training. Shortly after graduating, she moved to metro-Detroit where she worked in schools for a year before moving onto private and medical settings. Her most recent position was within a pediatric outpatient clinic through a children’s hospital in Grosse Point, MI. She moved back down south in May of 2019 to be closer to family. She is a recent recipient of an ACE Award which is given to those speech-language pathologists who receive greater than 70 hours of continuing education within a 36-month interim. Of all the trainings she has done, her favorite one was the opportunity to be a trainee speech pathologist at Camp Shout Out which is an overnight camp for school-age children with fluency disorders. This training was done under the guidance of several board certified fluency specialists from around the country. Hillary has experience with all ages but has primarily worked with pediatrics ages 0-18 years. She enjoys all aspects of speech-language pathology and has experience with disorders and delays of articulation, receptive-expressive language, cognition, social skills, fluency, and feeding and swallowing. On the weekends Hillary enjoys visiting local parks around Austin, hanging out with her sister and brother-in-law, and spending time with her husband and her cat (Sophie) both of whom have also come from Florida.
