I am Hillary. I’m a lot of things: a PhD, a writer, rare disease community engagement consultant, a non-profit founder, a mixer of oddball cocktails...But most importantly? I am the mom of a ridiculously fun, goofy, determined, and super cute little girl named Esmé. Esmé is my best buddy, my muse, and my teacher. Esmé is also medically-fragile, developmentally-delayed, and a bit of a scientific mystery. Since becoming Esmé's mother I have devoted myself to trying to improve the lives of children like Esmé through storytelling, education, advocacy, and medical research.

PRAISE FOR MY WORK
“Moving, witty and totally riveting – hits a sweet spot between science and family that Radiolab listeners will love. Perfect summer read (just make sure you have your kleenex close by!)”Channing Rodman – Praise for Around and Into the Unknown
“Clear, resonate, well-paced, and, often irrepressible, Hillary Savoie’s memoir shows us how love, even desperation, can drive the quest of science, and unearth a power of salvation. In the process, she proves to be the best kind of science writer—one with nerve.”
Jim Kozubek, Author of Modern Prometheus: Editing the Human Genome with Crispr-Cas9
