About

Hillary is an illustrator who focuses on effective visual storytelling and being a pleasant person to work with.

Hillary was raised in North Carolina and spent her childhood gradually developing an art hobby in her spare time, though she always saw herself pursuing a career in science and medicine. After receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Biology from High Point University in North Carolina, she diverted from her original goal of a purely medical career and continued her studies at the Johns Hopkins University Medical and Biological Illustration masters program. The career of medical illustration seemed like the perfect fit for her since it supports the two people she considers herself to be: A scientist and an artist.
