Boston, MA – The Isosceles Group, an environmental, health and safety firm, is pleased to welcome Jillian Seymour.
Jillian has served in various research positions throughout her professional experience. She has researched sexual health education in Texas public high schools for Texas State Representative Jessica Farrar, as well as numerous Medicare legislative proposals as an intern for the US Department of Health and Human Services. Additionally, Jillian conducted a year-long research project on Iraqi humanitarian-oriented NGOs within the context of American military occupation, which culminated in a senior honors thesis. Jillian engaged in dozens of interviews with Iraqi humanitarian workers, academics, and former American military personnel for this project.
Jillian graduated in 2015 from Wellesley College with a double major in Middle Eastern Studies and Political Science. In addition to graduating cum laude, she was awarded departmental honors in Political Science, the Wellesley in Washington fellowship, and the Barnett Miller grant for Political Science honors students. Jillian also supplemented her education at Wellesley with a semester abroad at Yarmouk University in Irbid, Jordan, where she adhered to an Arabic-only speaking policy.
Upon graduating from college, Jillian joined the Peace Corps as an Education Volunteer in Ethiopia. Living in a small town in the northwest region of the country, Jillian taught three sections of grade nine English, as well as co-facilitated gender and English clubs. In addition to living in Ethiopia and Jordan, she has also spent time in Morocco working for a local education and cultural center.
As a Junior Environmental, Health and Safety Associate for The Isosceles Group, Jillian will write regulatory update articles for both the Global Newsletter and Quarterly Report, update environmental, health, and safety (EHS) protocols, and research EHS laws and regulations in various countries. She can be reached at email@example.com or by phone at (617) 330-2800.
The Isosceles Group recently assisted one of its global manufacturing clients with direct outsourcing ESH management support for its global headquarters and manufacturing facility’s annual ISO 14,001 audit. The client, a leading manufacturer of sensors and control devices for automotive and aerospace applications, is required by many of its customers to maintain comprehensive environmental management programs and have its main operations certified in ISO 14,001, among other standards. The US global headquarters and manufacturing operations, having been in operation for more than several decades, provides a unique challenge for its location and extensive and varied operations. Besides manufacturing operations, the facility also carries out many research and development projects and failure analysis programs that utilize numerous chemicals, and create a variety of environmental aspects. The ever-changing nature of the R&D and failure analysis creates a complicated “change management” environment that is subject to continual process improvement.
The Isosceles Group’s outsourced ESH team worked closely with site business unit managers and key staff to ensure that new R&D projects and ever-changing customer requests were factored into the environmental management system’s process of tracking changes and recording potential new aspects and impacts. The myriad of constantly changing processes and associated aspects led the combined team to evaluate ways to create improvements year over year that were achievable and could produce cost-savings.
By developing master site logs, stored in cloud-based systems accessible from any computer, allowed for more rapid updating of changes, assessment of impacts, and follow-up inspections to ensure compliance. Simplification of tracking from many different tracking forms to a single system led to less confusion and better documentation. The results of the latest audit found no non-compliances; combined with these improvements in system management, the site has been able to remain Audit Non-Compliance free for 5 years.

Boston, MA – The Isosceles Group, an environmental health and safety management firm, is pleased to welcome Haley McClory to the firm.
Haley began her professional life as a researcher, and was given the opportunity to work on relevant projects affecting the world. Her research projects utilized the study of metabolomics, small molecule drug design, and nano-scale drug delivery systems to address treatment and diagnosis of Coronary Artery Disease, Breast Cancer, AIDS, and Alzheimer’s disease. Her research efforts, along with those of her colleagues, culminated in the paper, “Design of novel di-substituted Hydroxy Ureas as inhibitors of Ribonucleotide Reductase,” which addressed a common form of AIDS treatment and its derivatives.
While participating in an International Technology Transfer Institute Clinic, Haley co-authored the paper “Horses as Sources of Proprietary Information: Commercialization, Conservation and Compensation.” This paper addressed relevant international treaties on genetic resources and provided additional support for the hypothesis that developing countries can utilize their rare genetic resources to build capacity within their country.
As a Legal Intern at The Isosceles Group, Haley will be responsible for researching environmental, health, and safety (EHS) laws and regulatory revisions, writing regulatory update articles for the Quarterly Report and the Global Newsletter, and revising EHS protocols.
Haley has a B.S. in Biochemistry and a M.A. in Interdisciplinary Studies, with concentrations in Writing and Business, from Niagara University. She recently received a J.D. from New Hampshire School of Law, where she earned a Certificate in Intellectual Property for her work with trademarks and patents. This coming fall, Haley will be returning to the classroom to pursue a B.S. in Electrical Engineering at the University of New York at Buffalo. She would like it to be noted that, despite what it might look like, she is not collecting degrees.
