Hilary is married to Todd House, and both of them are graduates of Hemlock High School together; they have two children, Gabi and Holly, who both attend Hemlock Public Schools. Hilary graduated from Hemlock High School and went on to attend Michigan State University, where she earned her Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice. She recently retired from the Michigan State Police force and now is working in real estate.
In the past, Hilary also served on the Great Lakes Bay Region C.A.N. Council (Child Abuse and Neglect) and as the law enforcement liaison for the C.A.N. Council. Hilary says, “Serving on the school board is my way of giving back to the community and supporting our children.” She believes the single greatest challenge Hemlock Public Schools are currently facing is financial issues. Hilary is most proud of the fact that Hemlock is such a great place to live and raise a family.
