Executive Director

Hobart's Run

Director of Community and Economic Development

The Hill School

Margaret J. Wheatley said "There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about."

Twila was hired by The Hill School in 2015 to lead the then-newly created Hobart’s Run initiative, bringing with her compelling experience in public administration, economic and real estate development, non-profit management, and community organizing. She soon implemented various “clean and safe” initiatives to improve the quality of life in the neighborhood, earning her the Rotary of Pottstown’s “Person of the Year” award in 2017. Twila enjoys serving on several local boards and committees, including the Pottstown Borough Land Bank, the Pottstown Parks Foundation, and the YMCA Advisory Board. She holds a B.A. in political science from Columbia University, an M.P.A. in public administration with a certificate in economic development from the University of Pennsylvania, and she expects an Executive M.Sc. in Cities from the London School of Economics in December 2023.

"How Can I Help Hobart's Run?"

There are many ways to get involved – from volunteering for a cleanup, participating in neighborhood meetings, serving as a block captain, or making a financial contribution that will help us fund our community initiatives.

Hobart's Run (a 501(c)(3) neighborhood initiative) was launched by The Hill School to create a clean and safe community; foster inclusivity; provide incentives for home ownership and property pride; and generate quality business development.
