Scaling up is always on Hilary’s mind (and not just in terms of mountains!). Hilary approaches her work with a growth oriented perspective, employing both her creative and analytic talents in partnering with our clients to elevate and achieve their fundraising goals. Her clients include: The American University in Cairo, Boston Children’s Hospital, Colby College, Cradles to Crayons, Fitchburg State University, Johns Hopkins University, Mount Sinai Health system, and St. Mark’s School.

Prior to joining Development Guild DDI, Hilary most recently worked at Morgan Memorial Goodwill Industries as Senior Director of Philanthropy where she led all aspects of the organization’s fundraising program. Her previous experiences include serving as Director of Annual Campaigns at Harvard University’s Radcliffe Institute of Advanced Study, Director of Annual Giving at Boston University, and Editor of Advancement Communications at Simmons University. Hilary has received numerous awards from CASE, including two national Circle of Excellence Awards for her annual giving work.

Hilary earned a degree in English from Williams College and a Master of Business Administration from Simmons College School of Management. When not working with her clients, you will most likely find Hilary outdoors. Be it skiing in the mountains of northern New England, sailing, hiking (Peru is a recent favorite), or spending time with her dog Mayu, Hilary’s love of being outside matches her passion for our clients.
