Hi, I'm Hilary

WHERE I COME FROM

I am a native Nashvillian. I grew up in Madison but spent every weekend here in Hendersonville boating on the lake with my parents and sister, Ashley. I have lived in Hendersonville for over a decade, and I have two sons, Knox and Niles, who attend Jack Anderson Elementary.

EXPERIENCE

I attended St. Joseph (where my mom taught for over 30 years) and then St. Cecilia before heading off to UT Knoxville where I graduated with a Social Work degree. After several jobs in the social work field, I taught for 3 years- 4th grade at St Joseph and 5th grade at St Pius. I have been married to my husband for 20 years, Chris, who is also a UT grad and native Nashvillian, since 2009.

I have a BSSW and have used it to work with children and families through the years in both paid and volunteer capacities. I have experience as a classroom teacher.

ADVOCATING FOR ALL

I am the parent of two elementary school children in Sumner County Schools, so I am familiar with the current curriculum and operations from a parental standpoint. Both my boys have been diagnosed with dyslexia through the school system and I have been an advocate for them and seen how often times no matter how wonderful the teachers and administration are they are limited by time and the resources they need to assist non-traditional learners. Sumner County is known for great schools and I am fully invested in keeping them moving and evolving in the correct direction for ALL students.
