Hillary Medina

Youth Field Organizer since 2016


hmedina@rescueagency.com


Born and raised in Norman, Oklahoma, Hillary joins Rescue impassioned to empower young people across the nation. She holds a Bachelor degree in International and Area Studies from the University of Oklahoma (OU) where she learned the crucial role of cultural influence on peoples’ decisions and on policy.

Previously, Hillary worked as a 2 nd grade teacher in Oklahoma City Public Schools. While serving as a teacher, Hillary witnessed the struggles faced by her students everyday inside and outside the classroom. While she knew she made an impact on the lives of her 52 students, she knew there were countless other children struggling with the same obstacles across the country. Realizing that she could not fix these obstacles in her position as teacher, Hillary left the classroom with a charge to make lasting change to improve the lives of all children and their families across the nation. Hillary has also worked through the Urban Leaders Fellowship Program in Dallas, Texas working with a Texas State Board of Education member on conducting research regarding new streamlined Science Standards.

Hillary is excited to join the Rescue team and looks forward to empowering young advocates in the state of Virginia to promote social change and continuing Rescue’s mission.
