Meet Jason and Cecilia
Doing it together
With Jason and Cecilia Hilkey it’s hard to talk about one of them without talking about the other. They are perhaps the only married couple that not only teach parenting classes together but also teach in the same preschool classroom together. Prior to teaching they provided therapy services to children and adults with disabilities with a business that started (you guessed it) together.
Cecilia Wuller Hilkey, MA, OTR, is an educator, pediatric therapist, wife and mother. Since 2006, Cecilia has conducted parent education classes, support groups, and taught preschool. Prior to teaching, Cecilia owned a private practice with her husband, Jason, working as an occupational therapist in the homes and schools of children with disabilities. Cecilia is a member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children and the Harvard Family Research Project’s Family Involvement Network of Educators. She has received grants from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, California First 5, and the Awesome Foundation.
Jason Hilkey, BS, ATP, is an educator, computer technologist, father and husband. After a successful career at Walt Disney Feature Animation, he and Cecilia, his wife, started a private practice where he used technology to help children and adults to compensate for their disabilities. Their business received a grant from California First Five and was featured in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine and in the Daily Breeze. As his interest for teaching grew, he joined the school in 2008 and then with Cecilia in the same classroom where they teach 3, 4, and 5 year olds.
Cecilia and Jason have two daughters and currently reside in Los Angeles with
three two chickens, a hamster and a cat, as one big “happily family”.
