Hillary Ripps

Office Administrator

Hillary inherited her interest in the film industry from her father, who worked for MGM for over 40 years beginning in 1929. Hillary has worked with many well known film directors, producers and writers. She also partnered in a very successful independent production company for over 20 years, producing the films as well as running the office and handling business affairs. It was during this period that she received an Academy Award nomination and became a member of the Academy, where she serves on several Executive Committees. In her spare time, Hillary is puppy-raising Edison, a yellow Labrador Retriever, for Guide Dogs of America, as well as doing volunteer work at the Hollywood Ronald McDonald House. She is delighted to have become a member of Julien's Auctions staff as the Office Administrator which enables her to assist in the many facets of setting up the auctions.
