Hillary is from the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania and came to Summit County to train with the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club for snowboard racing. As a former English teacher for 18 years, her love of animals brought her to a second career as an animal leader at Petco and receptionist/vet tech assistant. She has two cute small dogs named Mugsy and Butters and a Siamese kitty named Kona. During her free time, you can find her snowboarding or biking throughout the county.
