A Maryland native, Hillen attended Penn State and was the first member of his immediate family to attend college. After graduating in 2010, Hillen moved back to the suburbs sandwiched between Baltimore, MD and Washington, D.C. He began coaching high school, and eventually college, basketball soon after graduation. Enjoying his interactions with prospective student-athletes, Hillen knew he wanted to make a larger impact on future generations of high school graduates. Hillen began working in college admission at Albright College, while still coaching their men's basketball team. He quickly realized the scale of the impact one could have, and eventually transitioned out of coaching to focus on his career in admission. During his time at Albright, Hillen was involved in many facets of the enrollment management operation. After five plus years at Albright, Hillen joined the Admission Office at F&M in 2019.

Favorite Travel Season Food - I love a good gyro.  Seeking out the closest Greek/Mediterranean spot is one of the first things I do when on the road.

Next "Bucket List" Travel Destination - Italy! My wife and I often daydream about eating our way through the various regions of Italy.

Favorite Activity Outside of Work - Spending time with my wife Brittany, and daughter Adalee. We enjoy watching all sports, especially basketball!
