A Chicago suburbs native, I graduated from the University of Illinois - Champaign Urbana with a degree in Communication and with a couple positions under my belt as a PR and Marketing assistant. After that, I interned for a year at Walt Disney World (yes it was amazing, and yes it is the most magical place on Earth). Here I took marketing classes with Disney executives which introduced me to "a whole new world" of creativity, perseverance and problem solving.

Post Disney, I took a slight turn and began working in the aviation industry as a buyer but I felt I was missing out on the design work that I had loved so much in the past. I decided to learn web development/coding and enjoyed it so much, I couldn't wait to begin the next project. As a result, Hill & Horizon was created!

I love designing and helping clients solve problems - Hill & Horizon allows me to do both every day!

When I am not working, I enjoy reading everything in sight, cooking new recipes from Pinterest, daydreaming about travel and hanging out with my 4-legged-buddy, Maverick.

Do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life!

Offering protection from rodent ruffians while the team designs, I also lend my opinion on the latest grey-scale trends.

Enjoys: napping ALL day, treatos, balls, stealing the spot you so kindly warmed up as soon as you get up from the couch.

Love, Kelly

Kind words from our lovely clients!

"Hill & Horizon meets your needs with a creative and professional style in web design for anything you want. I now have a web page that showcases my professional experiences, future goals, written work and projects to enhance my career path and job search. Not only does she develop a professional layout, but bases the design off your personality to make it more 'you'. I am so happy I have this outlet to my advantage!"
