Hilary Eldridge

Achilles PR Partner Public Relations Arlington, VA
About Hilary
My husband and I are business partners at Achilles PR, based out of Washington, DC. My husband also runs DLE Agency, a sports representation firm, with a focus on NFL and Olympic athletes. At Achilles, we have the unique opportunity to partner the athletes of DLE with our brands at Achilles. What works in our marriage, also works for us in business--our differences compliment the others, personally and professionally.

Prior to Achilles, I worked in the non-profit world, planning events for a non-partisan Environmental organization. I left in 2009 to help launch a foundation to promote water safety and drowning prevention, where I worked for 7 years. On the side, I launched a website (www.HilaryPhelps.com) and a corresponding media company, GJ Media Group, where I worked in the lifestyle space, in print, digital and traditional media. In 2016, GJ Media was enveloped into Achilles PR, where I married my background in the fitness, fashion, start-up and lifestyle space with my husband's expertise in sports, politics and law.

We have a 16-month old son and live in Arlington, VA. We were introduced through friends, who thought we were crazy enough in our personal goals to get along as a couple. At the time, I had returned from living in an ashram (yoga) and he was completing a campaign to raise money for wounded warriors, where he ran 10 marathons in 12 months. We're both Ironman triathletes.

I tend to be all or nothing--work, fitness, etc.--my goal is to find a happy balance.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

Listening, connectivity and availability. As crazy as it can be with running a business and having a family, it's important to give back, be kind and be open to other's opinions. I enjoy connecting and helping others.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Hiring / Talent Acquisition

What is one thing that would be game-changing for your business right now?

Finding a few new clients AND 1-2 eager employees

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I believe in women helping women--a high tide raises all ships-- and being involved in a community with other like minded women is paramount, especially other working mamas!

I read HeyMama throughout my pregnancy and would cry through some of the essays and found hope in others, that I 1) wasn't alone and 2) could have a career AND be a GREAT MAMA!
