Clara Miles was appointed assistant editor in 2012 after spending nearly a decade as a professional marketing copywriter in both in-house and full-service agency environments. While her focus is on writing and editing, Clara also manages Hilltopics’ web and social media platforms. In addition, she serves as an affiliate instructor in the Bradley English department, where she teaches Business Communication. Clara and her husband Wally live in Peoria.
“My time as a Bradley graduate student instilled in me a deep appreciation for the University that I continually am compelled to share with anyone and everyone. As part of the Hilltopics team, I now have the unique opportunity — and privilege — to conjoin that love for my alma mater with my passion for writing in new and exciting ways.”
