Oregon’s only year-round school for children, teens, and young adults with Autism and related learning differences.

Cathy Hillenbrand

Cathy HillenbrandCathy began an adventurous life in Fairbanks, Alaska, before relocating to Oregon. With a combination of love for people and knack for numbers, Cathy first pursued a degree in psychology at the University of Oregon, and later found her stride in Accounting at California State University East Bay. She not only earned her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration while at CSU, but also met her husband, Mark.

Together, Mark and Cathy share four children and five grandchildren. William, the first grandchild, was diagnosed with Autism following aggressive cancer treatment in early infancy. He experienced ABA intervention as soon as he was able, and is now entering the sixth grade, bringing joy to everybody he meets. William's life is the inspiration for Cathy’s passionate support of Victory Academy.

Cathy brings diverse business experience in industries ranging from technology to education to consumer products, and she holds certificates in Certified Public Accounting and Certified Information System Audit. Cathy recently joined Victory Academy from NIKE, and she is thrilled to be working with such a caring, dedicated team. Cathy’s favorite activities are spending time with her family, hiking, traveling and baking.
