Associate Director of Admission

Hillary grew up in Gig Harbor, Washington, and slowly moved her way over the Narrows Bridge to Tacoma. She doesn’t know what she loves more: reading about adventures in her favorite books, or traveling on adventures herself! Hillary is always checking out the new coffee shops and restaurants in Tacoma. She loves PLU’s emphasis on vocation – thanking her alma mater for allowing her to find it in working with high school students in their college search process.
