Hillary got her start in speech-language pathology in an outpatient private practice in Leesville, Louisiana, which served active duty soldiers, their dependents, and military retirees. The wide range of experience she gained in that position served her well when she moved to Ruston to marry her soulmate. She has since worked in long term care facilities, acute care, and home health. In 2016, Hillary decided that she wanted to set out to change the status quo of dysphagia treatment in North Louisiana, so she started her own outpatient private practice and then created North Louisiana Swallow Solutions to be the premier mobile FEES provider in the region. A chronic overachiever, Hillary has earned two ASHA Ace awards for going above and beyond the standard requirements for continuing education. She is also in the process of earning her Board Certification in Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (BCS-S).
