hilary

 Hilary has been at WAC since spring 2015. She has a BA in History from Albright College, and a Master of Education in College Student Affairs from Penn State University. She is working on her Ed.D. in Organizational Leadership (Higher Education Leadership) and hopes to finish very soon. 

Hilary is originally from Pennsylvania but loves living in Maryland so close to the water, and to so many different cities. Since she grew up she’s a Steelers fan, but married to a Ravens fan. She has one dog, Lizzy Lew, who is named after her favorite Civil War Spy (remember that degree in History?). When she has free time, Hilary enjoys needle crafts like cross stitch and knitting, they’re great ways to clear your mind! 

In the OAS, Hilary manages tutoring (science, languages, social science, humanities, academic skills), course mentoring (embedded tutors in BIO 111/112, CHE 120,140,220,240, and PSY 111/112), success seminars (covering a huge range of academic skills that can make your life as a student much easier), and the Academic Recovery program (which helps make sure students are using all the resources they need to be successful and graduate from WAC).
