Dr. Hills earned her medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C., and completed her internship and residency in family medicine with St. Mary’s Family Medicine in Grand Junction.

She grew up in Evergreen, Colorado, and attended the University of Colorado-Boulder where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in integrative physiology. Following graduation, Dr. Hills worked on the ski patrol at Copper Mountain for three years. She also worked as a medical assistant at High Country Healthcare in Breckenridge for one year before attending medical school in Washington, D.C.

“I didn’t think that I’d ever leave Colorado but went to medical school at Georgetown,” said Dr. Hills. “I’m happy to be back in Colorado!”

Dr. Hills completed a clinical rotation with Mountain Medical Center in Buena Vista during her residency and decided that she wanted to practice medicine in a rural mountain town.

She and her husband, Rollin, look forward to raising their 19-month-old son, Leo, in Chaffee County. “We enjoy camping, skiing and hiking so this will be a fun place for us to live and raise Leo,” she said.

Dr. Hills will be available for appointments at the HRRMC Buena Vista Health Center after Sept. 18. Call (719) 395-9048 for more information or to make an appointment.
