Hilary Baker

What sounds do you love?

Rain, early in the morning.

If you won $100 million in the lottery tomorrow, who or what would you give the first 100K to?

Teachers.

What is your secret ambition?

Be an actress on a sultry soap opera.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

Nothing specific but I imagined I’d be wearing a suit.

What I do…

From nine to five, I am the event specialist at the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. What is the Alliance? The American Heart Association and the William J. Clinton Foundation joined forces in May of 2005 to create a healthier generation by addressing one of the nation’s leading public health threats — childhood obesity. A career in health and education began when I worked as a teacher at the middle school level. I earned a Masters of Arts in Teaching from Lewis & Clark College. On a typical weekend you can find me running, gardening, walking my dogs…I love to be in motion.

Favorite Quote:

To whom much is given, much is expected. If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that’s a full day. That’s a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you’re going to have something special.
