Hilary was born and raised in sunny southern California but she feels more at home in Nashville, TN.   

Her first taste of Nashville came in 2010 as an intern in CMT’s Music Strategy Department where she was introduced to the exciting world of sponsorship activation and experiential marketing at a country music festival in Manhattan, Kansas.  After that eye-opening summer, Hilary finished college back in California and graduated from Azusa Pacific University with a bachelor’s degree in Communications-Media Studies.  With the support of family and friends, Hilary moved across the country without a job or place to live, a familiar tune of so many in Music City.

Through a mutual friend, Hilary met Lindsay Bertelli.  Hilary has worked her way up to Producer at REACH and continues to add a sweet spirit and dynamic energy to the team.

Always a lover of the outdoors, she’s discovered a newfound love in backpacking. In her free time, you may find her checking out a new Nashville eatery, attending a Nashville sports game or you might just bump into her at the Nashville airport headed to a work or fun trip.
