About Hilary


Hi! I'm Hilary.

I’m a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), entrepreneur, woman, wife, mother, and friend committed to helping you remove money blocks wherever I find them, grow your financial wealth, and champion you to financial freedom.

I’ve been where you are. Despite being a hard worker and a high earner, I created inauthentic financial patterns and faced painful financial results. I spent myself right out of my resources. But I took that struggle and I used it to succeed. I have devoted my career to using that former pain to transform money behaviors. I have done this in my own life and, as your financial advisor, I can do it for you as well. Think of it as your financial transformation.

As a woman, it can be tough to know who to trust when it comes to getting real about money.

Ideally, you’ll find a financial advisor you connect with on a personal level. Even more, you want a truth-teller, and strategic thinker, someone who has the resources to ensure all your questions are answered… both those you have now and those you’ve not yet thought to ask.

I’m not your father’s financial advisor — I’m yours.

I believe in meeting you where you are, witnessing your transformation, and making sure you have the financial plan you need to live the life of your dreams. I’d love to learn more about you and your financial goals.

If you’ve been thinking about partnering with a financial advisor to achieve what’s important to you, let’s start a more meaningful conversation about your wealth!

The Team


Hi! I'm Jen.

I studied Economics and Finance and minored in Accounting at Bethel College, where I was the first female to graduate with that degree. I’m a woman, wife, mother, and friend committed to helping you achieve the financial freedom you desire!

Jen is an Associate Financial Advisor. She's been in the industry since 2005, and joined Hendershott Wealth Management in 2017.

She knew this was the career path for her at a young age after observing the different outcomes loved ones faced as a result of their financial decisions.

She is responsible for enhancing the client’s experience through ongoing contact with the client as well as data gathering and analysis, development of financial planning, implementation and portfolio management.

Jen's passion is empowering you to have the tools and resources needed to build and grow your wealth. 

Besides spending time with her family, some of her interests are community service with church and other local organizations, camping, roller coasters, wine tasting, and hosting gatherings for friends and family.

She is our Ignite Investing Champion, and your advocate.
