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

 

“Hillary’s writing is nothing short of goose bump inducing. It’s prose with the heart of poetry and personal stories made universal. For parents on a similar journey, her words strike a deep down place– one that often remains neglected or misunderstood.”

 

Mary Evelyn Smith, What Do You Do Dear?

“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
Troybot, Troy NY
