While researching options for her own pro-active health, Dr. Smith became interested in Digital Infrared Thermal Imaging (DITI) or Thermography. In 2006, she opened Advanced Medical Thermography, The Breast Thermography Center within her existing Sherman Oaks location. Dr. Smith realized that utilizing thermal imaging at the center of wellness and offering a superior service was where all the roads she had traveled led to. She went to North Carolina to receive her training on the campus of Duke Medical Center through the auspices of the American College of Clinical Thermography.
Because of her dedication and excellence in the field, Dr. Smith was hand selected to train as a Level III Clinical Thermographer, the highest certification available through the ACCT. She was personally trained by Dr. Peter Leando, an international leader in thermal imaging. In 2019, she was awarded the Certificate of Outstanding Achievement at the ACCT International conference. In 2013, her practice focus became centered on Breast and Full Body Thermography, and how the information from the images could be translated into a proactive health action plan.
Hillary is a native of Los Angeles and received her education locally. In addition to staying current in functional nutrition and natural medicine, she enjoys traveling, live music, yoga practice and spending time with fun and interesting people. Other interests include her participation on the Advisory Board of The She Angels Foundation. Her greatest accomplishment is raising a remarkable son.
