Hillary Saffran has worked professionally as an employment specialist, job center supervisor, and case manager in the social services field for over a decade. Faced with single parenthood when her children were quite young and needing extra income, she knew that her time was limited for a part-time job on top of her full-time employment. As a solution, she used her creativity for a lucrative part-time business as a birthday party clown. As Hilly the Clown, she has entertained at many corporate events in Seattle, Alaska and Colorado over the past 28 years. This led to seven years performing with the improvisation group Denver Theater Sports; becoming a ventriloquist and performing for the Alaska State Fair; being asked by America's Got Talent to audition for their show last year, producing a children's CD, becoming an author and now the executive producer and host of two television shows on ME TV for local businesses and non-profits in her community.
