Hillary Emerson has been advising Running Start students since 2001 and she has been involved with YVCC for much longer. She earned her AA degree at YVCC after high school and then transferred to Whitman College for her Bachelor's degree. She has also worked in YVCC's Writing Center and in the Registration office. Her favorite part of her job is meeting with students and helping them make progress on their goals. She loves visiting the Oregon coast, finding great restaurants, following the Seahawks' ups and downs, and seeing the Dave Matthews Band most summers. ​
