Hilary attended Wellesley College, where she double majored in Political Science and English. She received her Master’s in Education from Harvard Graduate School of Education and her JD from Harvard Law School. After a federal clerkship in Miami, she moved to San Francisco, where after 6 years litigating at a big firm and 7 years managing litigation and investigations in-house at Google, she joined Netflix.

Hilary lives with her fiancee Sharon and their blended family of six kids: Kennedy and Chase, who are 17; Nicholas and Eva and Chandler, who are 15, and Theo, who is 13. (Yes, that is 6 teenagers; she keeps her cross-examination skills sharp at home.) In her essentially non-existent spare time she downhill skis and rock climbs in Yosemite.
