Hilary Kucera grew up in the Midwest, but ventured to Portland to attend Portland State University, where she earned an undergraduate degree in geography & environmental science. She then traveled the world before beginning graduate studies at the University of Pittsburgh School of Education. Eager to return to the beauty of the Northwest, she moved back to Portland in 2009 where she now happily lives, bakes, and cycles with her son, dog, and part-time chickens.
As The Frida Center’s office manager, Hilary is able to indulge in her passion for patient care and genuine human connection. "I feel fortunate to be part of a community where I gain continued fulfillment,” she says. "I truly believe in the people and practices at The Frida Center, and it's a privilege be part of a positive experience in people's lives."
