ABOUT ME

I am Hillary. I’m a lot of things: a PhD, a writer, 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 five-year-old girl named Esmé. Esmé is my best buddy, my muse, and my teacher. Esmé is also medically-fragile, severely developmentally-delayed, and a bit of a scientific mystery. When I am not watching Yo Gabba Gabba, hitting the boxing gym, or emailing one of our two dozen doctors or therapists, I am writing about Esmé and working to raise money for medical research through the Cute Syndrome Foundation.

PRAISE FOR MY WRITING

 

“Featured on our most popular episode of the year so far, Hillary Savoie knows how to engage an audience, not just with wit and eloquence, but with passion and vulnerability and genuine heart. Her unforgettable story about her daughter, Esme, left our live audience rapt, but also made them feel as if she and Esme were people they really knew, and loved.”

 

Erin Barker, Artistic Director, Story Collider

“Ms. Savoie eloquently brings the reader along in the search for her daughter’s diagnosis. Despite the personal nature of the journey, she has been able to take a step back, objectively contemplating the impact of the emerging genetic field on the future of medicine, while simultaneously inviting the reader along on a very personal journey that ends with a surprising realization.”

Sunshine Wagner, DPT – Praise for Around and Into the Unknown
