About our staff:

darren-for-web2Darren Hillock is westofthei.com’s chief content creator. He is a veteran community journalist, having worked for smaller publications for most of  his 38-year career. You might remember him from his stints with the Bulletin and more recently the Kenosha News. Asked to sum up his philosophy of community journalism, Darren said “there’s no story too small for the big treatment.” Take him up on it. Contact him at 262-758-7542 (voice or text message) or darren@westofthei.com.

karen-for-webKaren Hillock is westofthei.com’s advertising consultant. She jumped right into the corporate world after high school, working for Amoco Oil and later Illinois Bell, as both of those companies were known back in the day. In following Darren’s journalism career around, and raising three children, she has subsequently worked in mortgages, as a teacher’s aide, in a grocery store, hotel and as a school bus driver. Consequently she can relate to most businesses’ marketing needs. Call Karen at 262-758-7542 (voice or text message) or drop her a line at khillock47@yahoo.com

Darren and Karen have lived in Western Kenosha County for over 30 years. They have three children.
