Hillary has enjoyed being a stay at home mom for most of her adult life. She now works in Family Life’s ticket office with co-workers she says are “the sweetest of people.” (We like you too, Hillary!)

Hillary met her high school sweetheart, Cody, at Avoca Central School. After graduation, they moved to San Antonio, Texas, so Hillary could start her career in the Air Force. They were married shortly thereafter.

During her first year in the military, Hillary served as a medical technician at Wilford Hall Medical Center in a GYN clinic. She later moved to Labor & Delivery where her responsibilities shifted to starting IVs, sending off labs, setting up equipment, and checking vitals. Caring for the newborn babies after delivery was the most rewarding part of her job. Hillary says “the whole thing was so beautiful and scary at the same time. I loved it.”

After four years serving the Air Force, Hillary and Cody found out they were expecting a baby of their own. Hillary made the decision to leave the job she loved to stay home with her family. As the years passed and their family grew, the Slayton’s made the decision to leave the San Antonio area to move back to Upstate New York where most of their extended family lives. They missed the country and wanted their kids to know their grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins.

The Slayton’s have 3 beautiful children and love going to their soccer games and wrestling tournaments. Hillary also enjoys a good movie in her free time.
