Hillary has been a physical therapist for over 24 years in the Philadelphia area, working primarily in the home care setting with the geriatric population. She was inspired to write a story to help young children overcome their fears and insecurities surrounding differences; and to live life with confidence. That story became a series of books, The Adventures of Roxy.
Her first book, Roxy and Maliboo, It’s Okay to Be Different, is a story about two lovable dogs with unique features who teach the important lessons of limb difference awareness, inclusion, kindness, and acceptance. In her newest book, Roxy and Tully, Words Matter, Roxy teaches new lessons and raises awareness about prosthetics, how to handle bullying, the importance of word choices, and how they impact others.
Hillary plans to continue writing additional books in the Adventures of Roxy series where Roxy learns something new in each book, meets new friends, and teaches life lessons as she faces new challenges. She also providing programs to schools and organizations to help spread Roxy’s important messages.
