Hill got her start in radio on the U of A radio station in 1998, and moved to Colorado in 2000 to work in radio full time. 10 years away from Tucson; Hill was doing a morning show in California when she was diagnosed with an ovarian disorder. She decided to move back to Tucson to be near her family and to get healthy. Her desire to understand the human body lead her to become a personal trainer for 3 years before she landed at KHIT.
Hill met her husband on match.com in 2010, and is always trying to convince people to do online dating. He is an exercise physiologist specializing in cardiac rehab (he’s a smarty pants). They were married on the beach in Mexico 3 months after they were engaged. Usually when you get married that fast people think there is a baby on the way, but because of her ovarian disorder; babies were going to be a tall order. So, they thought they were just fine with 2 rescue dogs until Hill turned 38 and the clock was ticking!
Like many women in her situation, Hill decided to seek fertility treatments, and is not afraid to speak openly about it. After a tough process and pregnancy, Olivia Ray Bailey was born on March 30th, 2017. Luckily her face looks nothing like Hill, but she does have Hill’s creepy long fingers. Perhaps the future will lead to piano playing or basketball palming.
Now that she has a daughter, Hill is a huge fan of audio books and girls wine night out!
