“‘Reach for the Moon.’ Wonderful advice from my mother and the words still echo in my ears to this day. I continue to live my life with childish enthusiasm and never give up on reaching my goals and pursuing my dreams. I have unbelievable gratitude for all my accomplishments and  my amazing support system. Especially, my guardian angel: my daddy who watches over me every day and reminds me to "make the most of the ball game" called LIFE.


Hilary lives in New York City with her husband, TV News Anchor/Host Andrew Whitman and their kitty, Miss Eliza Doolittle. 

Life is a journey, not a destination...
