Meet Katie Hillman

Press Secretary for Shadow Cabinet in the Office of the Leader of the Official Opposition

Renfrew, Ontario

What inspired you to enter and pursue this field?

My love for Canadian politics and current issues.

How did you come to be in this position? Tell us about your journey - how did you get to where you are now, what inspired you to pursue this career?

I came to be in this position by completing the Conservative Party of Canada’s internship program in 2017 and applying for work in the OLO. My internship provided me with the opportunity to enter a career in politics that I love.

What advice would you give young women looking to enter your current line of work? OR what was the best advice you have received through your career?

Always ask questions! No question is a stupid question and every opportunity is an opportunity to learn!

If you are looking to get involved in politics I highly recommend completing an internship program or to volunteer in a political office. I would also advise young females to network and meet as many people in your prospective career field as possible.
