Lisa M. Nousek is a partner at New York law firm Boies, Schiller & Flexner LLP. An attorney who was given the New York Metro Area Rising Star award, Lisa M. Nousek earned her BA in earth and planetary sciences at Harvard University, graduating magna cum laude in 2002. She maintains a connection to her alma mater as a member of the Harvard Club of New York City (HCNY).

The HCNY was founded in 1865 to continue the camaraderie among Harvard graduates in New York. Its clubhouse in midtown Manhattan is the focal point of the club’s many activities. While connecting and engaging with fellow alumni is a major priority, the club is also aware of its social responsibilities and has established two endeavors to carry them out.

The first is the Crimson Impact, which connects club members who wish to volunteer and members who belong to organizations looking for volunteers. Through this program, Harvard alumni can offer their special skills to various organizations in need of pro bono service.

The second is the HCNY Foundation, which to date has helped more than 400 New York City students achieve their dream of studying at Harvard College by holding fundraising events for scholarships.
