Ms. Williams is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and a 1994 graduate of Wilmington High School.

She received her Master's Degree in Administration and Human Services in 2008 from Wilmington University. She is in the process of completing her dissertation for her Doctorate in Philosophy with a concentration in Nonprofit Management and Leadership. Ms. Williams is no stranger to Hilltop. She has been employed at the Center for 17 years serving in the capacities of Family Service Worker, Lead Family Service Worker and Deputy Director. She currently serves as the Director of Operations. During this time, Ms. Williams has established an excellent rapport with the children, parents, staff and major stakeholders of the Center.  She will replace long term Executive Director, Jea P. Street, who will become Director of Development on January 1, 2018 and will continue to serve in that capacity until he fully retires from Hilltop in November-2018. ·

 

The Hilltop Board of Directors believes Ms. Williams will be a major asset to agency operations and looks forward to continued growth and development of Hilltop' s programs under her tenure.
