“As a baby, my parents trusted Hilty and the staff to give me the same love I would have received as if staying at home. My first 4 years of life were spent with people that cared for me and treated me as their own. Then, about 14 years later, fresh out of high school, I decided to give some of that love back. I have now spent three summers and two Christmas breaks working for the place that gave me so much as a kid. I love my job and have never been surrounded by a more supportive, creative, caring and FUN group of people. I am so proud to be a part of this staff and give back to the place that will always have a special place in my heart.”
