Mrs. Anita Hilton

I am National Board Certified in School Counseling and have a Master's Degree in School Counseling and Guidance. I have been a school counselor in the Valley View School District since 2007, beginning at Romeville High School before A. Vito Martinez Middle School. Prior to working in the VVSD, I was the guidance counselor supporting students with the most intensive needs at Lyons Township H.S. My past careers included being an Associate Director of Campus Life and Housing at a nearby university and working in constituent services for a U.S. Senator.

I consider my role as a school counselor, supporting students, families and my school/VVSD community a joy and privilege! When I'm not at school, I love spending time with my family and traveling with my husband, who is also a school counselor, to experience different cultures and places.
