She has also committed her time to a number of other causes throughout the St. Louis region.
Hillman has been involved with private business enterprises over the course of his career, owning more than 50 companies in a variety of industries. He has been an active partner and catalyst in each investment opportunity, particularly within the FTL Capital portfolio set, where he serves as managing principal. He currently serves on the Advisory Board of Automation Service and as executive chairman of Pulse Therapeutics.
Hillman is also general partner of Lewis & Clark Ventures, a venture capital equity growth fund headquartered in St. Louis and focused on high potential Series A & B round investment opportunities in the Midwest region. He serves on the Board of Trustees at Washington University in St. Louis and on the YPO Gold International Board.
