Hilary is an architect and social impact designer specializing in sustainability. A background in environmental studies and community development informs her work with groups through participatory design to achieve holistic place-based solutions that address issues of resilience, social justice, health, ecology and decarbonization.

As sustainability integration leader, she serves as an expert design resource and process facilitator to advance building and site performance across the practice. Hilary’s passion for community resilience and affordable housing is evident within trailblazing projects that improve people’s lives, including Maceo May Apartments, which incorporates modular construction to create 105 homes for formerly homeless Veterans and their families, and the Resilient by Design Bay Area Challenge, a collaboration with communities in North Richmond, CA to develop projects using infrastructure dollars to leverage health and wealth benefits for historically disinvested communities.
