BOSTON—This July, NELC welcomed Lily Hibbard as our new paralegal and office administrator.

Lily graduated summa cum laude from Scripps College in 2022 with a degree in environmental analysis. While at Scripps, Lily studied environmental justice and the environmental toll of modern social and political structures. Prior to working with NELC, Lily was an intern at Seaside Sustainability in Gloucester, Massachusetts, where she served on a statewide task force on PFAS chemicals, and at Women and Law in Southern Africa, where she worked on policy-based approaches to environmental health and the preservation of natural resources.

“I’m so grateful to be joining this team. NELC’s work is vital, and I feel lucky to have a position that aligns with my aspirations and values,” said Lily. “I’m eager to get to work.”

Lily replaces Riena Harker, who served as NELC’s paralegal for the past two years and is now enrolled at the graduate School of Public Health at Yale University.
