Hiller attended the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, and the Boston Cooking School, graduating in its class of 1898. She was later the principal of the Chicago Domestic Training School, which was located at 53 Dearborn Street in Chicago.
In 1905, The Women's Home Companion invited six leading cooking personalities to submit columns with their favorite recipes in a contest to select a new regular columnist. Hiller participated and lost to Fannie Farmer.
She contributed a regular column to the magazine Chef, Steward and Housekeeper, and wrote recipes for the Chicago Tribune which were also published in other newspapers across the United States. She regularly lectured on culinary topics, at shows and expositions, to clubs and societies around the country, and on radio. Her recipe or menu calendars were still being published in the early 1930s.
Hiller was married to Jackson Hiller. She died on 14 August 1941, aged 85, at the home of a daughter in Park Ridge, Illinois.
