As a highly-experienced lifestyle journalist, Hillary has spent decades covering beauty, fashion, weddings, shopping, and much more for national publications, e-commerce sites, corporate web clients, and television. She’s developed a reputation as a successful, seasoned freelancer who consistently turns out excellent writing across a variety of editorial platforms.
Hillary began her career as a college intern at Working Woman magazine, and later joined the staff as a full-time editorial assistant. She went on to hold key positions at McCall’s, Elle, and eventually Mademoiselle, where Hillary was named Copy and Special Projects Director, responsible for producing and editing all lifestyle and service content in the magazine.
Today, as a fulltime freelancer for such clients as Michael Kors, Shiseido, Bride’s, Cosmopolitan, and Good Housekeeping, she’s passionate about focusing on subjects that enrich readers’ everyday lives: showing how to stand your ground with a bullying boss…singing the merits of a peep-toe pump…tracking down that perfect shade of pink lipstick…or offering up clever strategies for dealing with a bad-news bridesmaid.
When she’s not on her laptop, you can find Hillary on her skis, in a yoga class, cheering on the Seahawks, lost in her cookbooks, hiking, or glued to YouTube demos of buttercream piping techniques and smoky eyes. The mother of two amazing and driven kids, she lives with her husband (also amazing and driven) in Woodway, WA–a beautiful suburb of Seattle that’s only one click away from the other city in her heart…New York.
