Hilary serves as the Regional Development Officer for the Great Lakes/Great Plains Region of the Leadership Institute (LI).

Originally from Grand Terrace, California, Hilary is the oldest of two daughters. Born to fiercely independent, self-employed parents, she learned the importance of personal responsibility, limited government, and love of country.

Hilary received her Bachelor of Arts in History from Pacific Union College in Napa, California and her Masters in International Commercial Law from the University of Bournemouth in England. While studying for her Masters, she spent time volunteering for organizations like the Taxpayers’ Alliance, The Freedom Association, and as the development officer for Martin Durkin’s film Brexit: The Movie.

Hilary began her time at LI in the spring of 2016. She feels extremely blessed to be able to work for an organization dedicated to her political and social values in the states of Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

While not devoting time to the spread of freedom, Hilary enjoys gardening, hitting the gym, practicing yoga, and cooking with family.

Hilary lives with her husband Daniel and sister in Alexandria, VA.
