Preston Hilburn has extensive non-profit and management experience. Originally working in the corporate sector, Preston decided in 2013 that it was time to walk a more fulfilling path and begun his journey into the nonprofit world. During his time at Equality Utah Preston has been able to work with non-profit organizations around the country, from Idaho to Missouri, as they seek to expand protections for the LGBTQ community. Preston serves in many capacities as Programs Director at Equality Utah. During the legislative session he works with Equality Utah's community partners to build strong and lasting coalitions. Throughout the rest of the year, Preston works with candidates around the state to help place strong LGBTQ-affirming leaders into office. He also works with corporations and businesses to help foster more inclusive workplaces. When he isn't out doing his "queer missionary" work, he enjoys snowboarding as well as spending time with his husband Leighton and their two dogs Ezra and Zara.
