Prior to joining Marketplace in 2010, she worked at WBEZ in Chicago, first as an intern, then producer of the local show Eight Forty-Eight, then news desk editor and reporter. Hill has received numerous awards for her contribution to a project she worked on at WBEZ called "Inside & Out."

Hill is a graduate of Amherst College where she earned her bachelor's degree in political science and economics. She has a Master's degree in political science from Northwestern University.

A native of Celo, N.C., Hill currently resides in Los Angeles where the weather is really as good as people say it is. In her spare time, she likes to hike, cook and sew.
